Looking for well-written and clearly recorded songs that I can contribute to.
Looking for people who want to contribute tracks to some of my material as well.
Thanks for reading all of this!
Years ago I fronted several rock bands that played loud 80's metal and became very good at emulating Rob Halford, Bruce Dickenson and Don Dokken. Yes, I was a wailer!
But more true to form, I sound like Jim Morrison (The Doors) and David Bowie when I sing in the tenor register. Alto and higher is more like Chris Cornell (Audioslave) with a bit of Lou Gramm (Foreigner). Well, maybe. One can only dream!
I am very in tune with the way a song feels. If it feels right you can move to it. That's the kind of stuff I like to write lyrics for, and I think that's what people respond to on a basic level.
I listen to: melodic rock, hard rock, heavy metal and (some) dark pop and punk music.
