ABOUT

Active project looking for new drummer - also playing with the idea of adding a new rhythm guitarist and keys. Rock based but mixing in different genres in new, subtle and interesting ways. Hit me up at jaymez.d.strong at gee-mail dot com. I'm the vocalist/guitarist. Check out the samples in the player, and if you play andy of the instruments mentioned drop me a line at the contact I sneakily provided above (p.s. you should do the same [they'll erase it if you use the 'at symbol and the real email domain name] so non-premium members, which the majority of people here are, can contact you). Especially looking for players with strong backing vocals. Looking to resume gigging asap.

Got years of touring (a few cross countries and stints on Warped) as well as a few LPs under my belt. Currently have shows available and recently released our debut EP.
