I'm looking for a band to join. Singing and playing bass are my main strengths. I'm curious about opportunities to play bass in a band again and don't mind doing covers. Just want to sharpen my abilities, meet great people and have fun.
I've been involved with music all my life. I've had experience in a recording studio was the lead singer in an alternative band in the 80s and early 90s playing all original music. We mostly played at colleges and opened for a few slightly bigger acts from the time period. I started playing bass in the mid-90s and really love the instrument.
I'm a tail-end Baby Boomer with older siblings, so I heard nothing but the Beatles and Rolling Stones as a kid, but I also enjoy 80s alternate bands like U2, the Smiths, Cocteau Twins, R.E.M., The Alarm, Psychedelic Furs, The Church, 77s, Chameleons UK, Throwing Muses, Lloyd Cole and the Commotions and many others. I also like bluegrass/Americana bands including Alison Krauss + Union Station, Nickel Creek, The Greencards, Luka Bloom and the Wailin' Jennys. Chris Isaak, Altan, Fleet Foxes, Nick Drake and Lyle Lovett are also influences. And, the Rutles... ;-)
