Drummer Wanted (Indie/Alternative Band)
LF: Drummer to complete a trio
We’re two females from Mississauga in our mid-20s, and we’ve been friends since grade 9. We are looking to embark on this journey of playing music together again (we played in the same strings band, as violinist and violist, during the latter of high school). Our lead vocalist/guitarist/lyricist produced songs 5 years ago while our bassist recently wrote bass lines for two of these tracks; and now we need a fellow drummer to come and jam with us!
We have percussion for these said 2 tracks but the candidate is certainly welcome to pitch new ideas and has room for creative exploration. It would be a great bonus if the candidate can do backup vocals as well. The goal is to practice a set of at least 5 songs, and be ready to open for friends’ bands' shows and other future local opportunities. We already missed an opportunity because of our lack of a drummer.
We’re in the early stages of forming this band. Aside from the 2 “complete songs”, it is ideal to finalize an additional of 2 more songs and possibly include covers as well to fill the setlist. Currently, there are some ideas for a band name, but we’d like to write that in stone once the band is complete.
We have a vehicle and can drive to a location to rehearse (currently we’ve been using our lead man’s uncle's basement for practice), and are usually open on the weekends and weekday evenings. We’re open to anyone who lives in Mississauga, Etobicoke, Oakville, Brampton, or Milton and maybe even downtown Toronto.
Here are some of our musical influences:
Silversun Pickups, Modest Mouse, The Cranberries, 10000 Maniacs, Minus the Bear, Rancid, Fugazi
We will only entertain those with serious intents, and will send links to some of the songs demo’d from 5 years ago.
Please let us know your name, a little bit about yourself (maybe even some of your existing work), location, and if you don’t mind, your age group.
Looking forward to hearing from you!
