Just to preface this, this is for **SERIOUS INQUIRIES ONLY** Please read the entire post before deciding to reply to it.
I’ll start off with a little background about myself and what this is all about. My name is Eric and I’m a 26 year old guitar player. I’ve been playing the guitar since I was 9 years old and started becoming very serious about it when I was 13. In addition to playing the guitar I also play drums, bass guitar and sing (although I can’t say I’m amazing at that). For the past year or so I’ve been recording an album and am now seeking like-minded musicians to form a band with. I’ve been writing and recording entirely on my own, writing all of the music, recording all of the instruments, and taking care of all the production side of things (mixing). The music I write is Rock/Hard Rock/metal….Somewhere in that spectrum of things. I have 10 songs written and recorded for the album, with a wide range of sounds with heavier metal tracks, up-tempo rock tracks, a softer acoustic track as well as one instrumental track. I've also begun recording another batch of songs as well.
Who am I looking for?
I am looking for a second guitar player, bass player, drummer and vocalist. Ideally looking for people around the same age, plus or minus a few years (this isn’t really a big deal to me) who I feel a musical chemistry with. This is not something I would expect someone to make their sole priority in life as I am a very busy person myself, but I would be looking for some kind of commitment to this project as it is very important to me and hopefully it would become important to you as well.
What I look for in fellow musicians.
The biggest and most important thing I’m looking for is for someone who is open minded when it comes to music. Nothing drives me crazier than a music snob. My personal musical influences range from: Metallica to Eminem, Iron Maiden to Evanescence, Guns N Roses to Trivium, Motley Crue to Boyce Avenue, Disturbed to Alice Cooper, Michael Jackson to Lynyrd Skynyrd, Yngwie Malmsteen to Sixx AM and absolutely everything in between, trust me my IPod is all over the place…… the point here being I’m looking for people who are extremely open minded and don’t discriminate against certain kinds of music. I want to work with people who truly love music…. All kinds of music because good music is good music and being different is what makes music unique and special.
I know this is somewhat vague but if this has caught your interest please feel free to reply to my email with questions and we can chat a little bit more. I do have audio samples for serious inquiries.
