ABOUT

Hi, my name is Oliver, I am a young french canadian (Speak perfectly both French and English), and I am finally trying to get into the scene, and trying to find or found bands that have the ambition that I have. I am a guitarist, and a Tenor Vocalist (Can do screaming), and I have studied one year into Sound engineering, so I have some slight experience about recording, mixing, working
in a studio and on a stage.

To be honest I have not much experience (Nothing as a guitarist, but I have been in an Iron Maiden cover band as vocalist for almost a year, so yeah I can sing high operatic stuff if asked), and the reason is because i though that i needed to focus more on fiding an identity and improve my skills in both my playing and writing, while diversing my music knowledge and also get as best as possible in the realm of improv. Which I have been doing for the past 5 years. So I am now trying to find my first spot, either as a vocalist, a Lead/Rhythm guitarist or both. My influences are found more in Classic Rock, Prog and Traditional Heavy Metal. Even if I am always interested to try other genre (Not interested in Thrash, Djent and any ''Core band'' exept Metalcore). So, if your looking for a determinated and professional person, a writer (Both music and lyrics), despite his inexperience on stage or lack of equipment, please contact me.

PS: I am open to moving wherever in the country. Also, i don't care for the age of other band members.
