SEEKINGBand to Join.
30 years old.
VERY committed to a professional career in music.
I tend to be direct; I like to have open, honest conversations.
The tracks on my profile were work in progress demo tracks with my last band.
My primary interest is to find a group as committed to playing music as I am. I want to play with people who want to get together at least twice a week, and put the music first.
I practice 3-4 times a week for 3-4h periods depending on my work schedule.
I am willing to do both live and studio work, but prefer to play live given the choice. I will do session work.
I do both originals and covers, but prefer to write original music given the choice.
I mainly play rock/metal genres, which is my primary interest. However, I am willing to play other (softer) genres if the gig is right.
I've been playing guitar for 17 years off and on, but I haven't played much in the past few years since switching to drums, which are my primary interest and passion now. I have been playing drums for about 5 years.
