ABOUT

I’m a 19 year old musician from Olds, Alberta, am currently in a two piece band covering Royal Blood songs, but I’d like to join a serious band and have actual committed practices and music writing sessions! I’m a pretty decent bassist with a pick and am quite advanced in lead guitar, I am very quick at learning songs and can usually do it by ear, and I often write many riffs and chord progressions but I’d like to have a group to really turn those into actual songs! I cannot drive yet so that is kind of sucky but I always try to make it out to practice no matter the barriers.
