I would like to form a band. Though I play guitar, I’m looking for a lead guitar player, in addition to bass and drums, and whatever other instruments might fit. I have written twelve or fourteen songs, and possess many ideas. I’m also interested in covering the classics. The market for a Christian folk/rock act must be sparse, but handled creatively I think the sound could be compelling.
I envision an act with essentially two sets: (a) a straight “religious” set, appealing to Christian audiences in Christian settings; and (b) a secular set with spiritual influences, appealing to general audiences in more traditional venues.
Depending on where the members are located, the group would meet somewhat regularly, performing gigs occasionally. I’m a high-school teacher, so summer is a great time to “tour.” I have a few venues in mind, but the group would have to talk about other possibilities.
My own sound can be found on the demos page (see tabs above). My technical experience recording is limited, so the demos don’t do my work justice, but you’ll get the basic idea. My strength is in the vocals, not guitar playing (I can manage rhythm), so a lead guitarist is essential. Bass and percussion too.
As for my musical experience, I’ve performed only a few gigs, including one full set (11 songs, my longest). Mostly, I’ve performed with various worship teams, handling either vocals or playing the violin (it’s been a while though since I’ve really used my violin, but I’m sure I could break it out).
On a personal level, I plan on making professional demos, teaming up with another member of the worship group at my church. The group I hope to form may or may not be part of that process.
If you are interested, let me know what your ideas/expectations are, your abilities, and what equipment you possess. I have essentially an amp, mic, and some other equipment, though I’m willing to invest in some additional gear.
Let’s talk, let’s jam, let’s see where it all leads.
