Previous band/musical experience: Have been playing bass for close to ten years now, and have been in several bands, currently in Punchclock - a heavy metal band.
What kind of band you are looking for: I am looking for an outlet for my pop/prog writing - my current band, which I love, is strictly for heavy shit, so that obviously won't work there. I do a fair amount of writing, but I'm probably best at arranging/adding basslines to previously written guitar parts. I also can't sing to save my life, so if you come up with good melodies, I like you.
Gear: Ibanez ATK bass, Gibson Les Paul, various amps + effects, Samplitude 6.0, Reason 2.0, a shitload of plug-ins, and a shitload of mics, a variety of high-quality desks.
Anything else you think we should know: I am quite satisfied with my current band, I just need a creative writing outlet - I am looking at a side project/collaboration type deal, not necessarily a full-time band.
