Band Seeking Musician
Location: Sydney
Posted: 3 years ago

I'm hoping to meet some like minded musicians in the Sydney area. I was in a band in my late 20's / early 30's which fizzled out and afterwards I didn't play music again for at least 10 years.
I'm now 45 and this must be my mid life crisis...I've just picked up my bass again over the last 6 months and have been writing pieces of music I'm going to describe as a strange brew of blues and art rock jazz (you may listen and come up with your own description!).
As for the kind of musicians I'm hoping to hook up with, I'm not entirely sure. I think a trumpet player and drummer would complement my music well but I'm open to hearing from anyone who thinks they would like to play music with me, so anyone playing anything from keyboards to guitar to wind instruments to fiddle to cello is welcome if they're interested. Am also open to hearing from singers / lyricists.
Some of the artists I am currently listening to a lot and being inspired by are in no particular order, Steve Smyth, Ben Caplan, Jaron Freeman Fox, I Am Kloot, John Grant, Elbow, John Frusciante, Zoe Keating, Jo Quail, Yusef Luteef, The Reigning Monarchs. In my younger days bands like REM and U2 were the bands that inspired me to pick up an instrument.

Below are links to a few roughly recorded pieces of mine recorded on IPad and uploaded to Soundcloud to give you an idea of what my music sounds like.

If you would like to chat after that, please feel welcome to contact me. Thanks for reading!
