I am a composer/arranger who plays keyboards and guitar - also some percussion and vocals. I have an original project developing, and I need a really good drummer who can play to a click and who plays V-drums or some form of electronic drums.
I have a vocalist and a guitarist on board with this project, and we use a lot of technology -- i.e. sequenced bass and percussion, lots of elaborate layering and processing. The music can be hard to describe: it is some form of melodic rock. Progressive, adult contemporary.
Need someone who is no afraid of slightly longer songs and can think outside the box. Not trying to be a rock star here... integrity first.
Goals – recording, production, CD release, promotion, live performance
Decent electronic drums are a must (or at least access to them), as is playing to a click.
Check out very rough demos/sketches at the following website:
Looking to form a long-term, substantive partnership. Hoping to find someone who can really get behind the music and be passionate about what we are doing. This will be a very rewarding endeavor for the right person. Im a cool, friendly guy who is easy to get along with and open to suggestion, and Im an effective communicator. I have a strong vision for the music, but I value and encourage everyones input and participation in the writing and recording process.
