08-08-11 – Seattle, WA>Portland, OR – Want to create a dream poppy trio and perform some songs I’ve written and write new ones. Think Beach House, Blonde Redhead, Elliott Smith, Beatles, Grandaddy. Want a synth/keys player and a drummer, preferably around my age.
Me: 27 yr old, play guitar/keys/sing. I write and record a lot of stuff. I want to get a trio going to play some of the things I’ve written, write new stuff, and play. I will post links to some of the songs I’d want to play at the end of this, but I don’t necessarily want this project to sound exactly like the recordings. I’d want to see how we can play these songs, and create more, with a three piece.
Need: Synth/keys player, bonus points for vocal ability. Knowledge of chord structure and a good ear are major plusses. You would be playing a lot of chordal/pad type stuff, and it would be awesome if you could handle bass duties as well with multiple synths or a split synth.
Need: Drummer- I don’t know much about drumming, but I know that I really love what the Blonde Redhead drummer does. If you could do stuff like that, it would be awesome, but mostly, you just have to want to play and practice.
Links to some of my music.
There are more recordings at that site. Remember, I don’t necessarily want this project to sound like these recordings, but I’d like to play some of these songs, and they give you an idea of my writing style. Contact me if you are interested and you want to give it an honest shot. Hope to hear from you. — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
