Attitude

Upbeat and Professional. . . . Until just recently, we were a 5 piece band playing mostly blues and blues rock covers. We have separated with a guitarist and a bassist due to creative differences and an inability to commit to a rehearsal schedule. We currently have a very talented and dynamic drummer and an amazing guitarist who is also a very skilled bassist and a very versatile lead singer with bluesy, grunge rock vocals. Ideally, we'd like to find another guitarist who can play guitar and bass and wouldn't mind switching off, but hard working, talented, and available musicians are hard to find here in the northern states so if you only play one of the two, that's okay too. We have also discussed adding a pianist at some point if the right fit comes along. Experience with synths is a plus!! Since the three remaining members are the core writing team, we've spent the last couple months working on original material. This has led us in a different direction musically and though we would like to play some blues rock, we are looking to go in a harder, heavier direction. Think Volbeat and Clutch but with female powerhouse vocals and heavier drums. We have 2 originals (one heavier blues rock, one pop punk) we are getting ready to record and several other originals in the works. If you can play an instrument, sing backup or screaming vocals or have experience writing in rock, blues rock and metal genres, we want to hear from you today!! Ultimately, we are looking for the right fit. Right now, we get together once a week for about 5 hours. We are a laid back group and really fun, but we have what a lot of other people lack and that's drive. We love music and want to be successful in this industry. We are looking for someone who can commit to at least one day a week, practice in their own time and come to rehearsal with a good attitude ready to work and have fun. We are not a jam band. We will play occasional covers, but we really want to focus our efforts on writing originals. Right now, we are turning down gigs because we don't have a full band so we'd like to find someone relatively soon. Are you the one? Come hangout and see if you like us enough to come back! :)
