Think globally, rock locally
Just thought I'd introduce myself a little and what I'm going for. My name is Steve, I'm 21 and currently looking for a group. I've been writing a lot of my own material lately, so my goal is to start a band based on that type of music rather than join an already existing band (unless of course, the styles are similar). I'm more acoustic-based, but I'd like to back that up with a drummer, bassist, electric guitarist, and possibly a keyboard player. I'd love to get some killer harmonies into the mix as well.
It's hard for me to explain the type of music I make, but I think if I listed my major influences you'd be able to connect the dots. Without a doubt The Beatles are my biggest influence (George Harrison is my favorite Beatle in case you're wondering) and most of my favorite music either comes from around that time, or is greatly styled in that manner. Such as The Hollies, Kay Kay and His Weathered Underground, Electric Light Orchestra, Simon & Garfunkel, The Shins, The Young Veins, etc. The list can go on forever, but those are the big ones.
I haven't recorded any of my original material yet, but here are some links if you wanna check out cover songs/past work to get a idea of where I'm headed:
This is my myspace with a few cover songs on it
This is my old group, but the music I'm making is still in this general direction.
Let me know if you're interested, or know anyone who is. Glad to be part of the community!
