Experienced musician/Amateur Vocalist

Hey there. I’m an experienced musician looking to take my first steps as a singer songwriter. I’m looking for musicians passionate about music and their instrument to join me in this venture, I’m fairly new at the singing thing, but there are few things I can only learn if I just dive right in. We can start this and have a lot of fun, however I have the desire and drive to commit to this seriously and would love to have a group of musicians willing to go for the long haul with me.

We would start by learning some covers of tunes (and gigging with said covers) and eventually developing originals as the band progresses chemistry wise. I want to cover songs by John Mayer, Hozier, Jimi Hendrix, Jack Johnson, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Ed sheeran, Gary Clark Jr and a lot more if my vocal ability can handle it.

I’m primarily a rock guy and would love to cover rock tunes once my vocals get to this level (foo fighters, Alice In Chains, Nothing but thieves, Muse) but I want to try and come up with a unique and interesting for our original sound that blends blues, rock, funk, etc. let’s see what happens and play songs we love.

There is some criteria I think we should all try to meet and would be a tangible requirement. I would be handling the logistical side of this project as well as act as music director for the band.

-Commitment to rehearsal (every other week) I’ll pay for a rehearsal space which would be in Keizer if need be.

-Teachable

-Positive, egoless attitude

-The drive to consistently improve on serving the music

-Gig worthy gear

-Commitment to monthly meet ups to discuss the project

One more note I need to stress, I’m more concerned with the bands overall sound than I am about gigging right away. Let’s take our time and energy to develop a great sound, which may take some time.

I understand you may have read a lot here, thanks for checking my post out. Feel free to call/text/voicemail. Looking forward to building something together.
