Hi, I am a Vancouver based lead/ rhythm guitarist, back-up vocalist, looking for a bassist who has experience in a band situation previously, and is actively writing modern hard rock/metal ORIGINALS ONLY. I hope to find an actively writing and practicing partner/ collaborator, and then add the other members for a casual, fun experience, as I have a career and other interests, but am open to touring and recording also. Influences- anything Mike Patton touches, 60's, 70's, NOT the cheesy 80's, definitely 90's, and beyond, Seattle scene, metal, Tool, Unkle, Bjork, SOAD, Portishead, Fishbone, Opeth, Trip Hop , Chill , progressive, Deftones, Tricky, QOTSA, Mars Volta, Radiohead, blues, Hendrix, NIN, Suicidal Tendencies, Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree, Mastodon, Gojira, Rammstein . I am looking for a hard rock/ metal type project, or to maybe form a hybrid band incorporating Hard Rock, metal, Trip Hop, Chill etc. I also have a Midi Guitar to play countless instruments and synthesizers. Please no Hair/ Glam Metal, retro and garage rock, or pop music. Let's try something different if that's possible. Looking for musicians who collaborate fully between all people in the band, male or female, and the possibility of a good friendship developing. People who are able to rehearse at least once or twice a week if available. If you are familiar with working on a computer DAW- even better. Please no substance addicts, or people who are image oriented- I don't care what you look like, as long as you can play well and with feeling. I have many guitars and amps for different scenarios, a daytime job, and a useful pick-up truck. Hopefully you are financially able to contribute to rehearsal space rental, or a proper sound attenuated lockout space if things work out. I am 53 years old, don't read music and am self taught. Here is a link-
https://soundcloud.com/hogansone/tracks - of some rough demo's I made over the last few years by myself- except Upbeat, made in my home studio DAW and IPad. I am not necessarily looking to use these songs exclusively, unless you feel we can update and improve them. Please forward a full description of yourself, and some recorded samples of previous work, even if it's a self recorded song with your phone . Please NO TEXT MESSAGES, let's talk directly.Thanks, Mike.
