We're currently trying to find a drummer, cellist & electric bass player for a rock/orchestral/alternative/electronic band, preferably between the ages 18-25ish.
We've been wanting to blend a kinda of theatrical element to this sound - strings, orchestral, and electronic vibes. In this day and age it's hard to breakthrough as a group so doing something new & unique is key, and we think a fusion like this could be interesting.
We'd like to create something more than just something sonic when it comes to live performance - an experience that is audial, visual, and possibly more - something that conveys emotion on more than one plane.
Here's is a link to our first EP we recently released:
Our influences include many genres and styles of music, but commonly bands/artists such as Muse, Jimmy Eat World, The Naked And Famous, Angels & Airwaves, PVRIS, Nero, Paramore (the Farro brothers), Lindsey Stirling, Purity Ring, Panic! At The Disco, Evanescense, Relient K, Brand New, Daft Punk, Blackmill, 30 Seconds To Mars, VersaEmerge, etc.
Another big influence are soundtracks and scores from films/video games (Hans Zimmer, Lorne Balfe), classical & jazz music (Haley Reinhart, Hilary Hahn), crossover artists (Scott Bradlee & Postmodern Jukebox, The Piano Guys, 2Cellos) and visual art such as the Cirque Du Soleil & steampunk.
A bit about myself - I'm 22, from Australia, and moved here to purse music, and to form a band here, as the scene over in Australia isn't nearly as good as the US/Canada. I literally sold everything I own except a guitar and a suitcase and made my way over to the other side of the world. Prior to this, I moved out of home before I was 18 to the other side of the country to try and find my place in music there. However that still wasn't good enough, which is why I find myself here.
I've been playing music since grade three, on an array of different instruments in primary school (violin, trumpet, saxophone), and I have been playing guitar primarily for the last eight years.
I've played in a fair amount of bands over the years, have plenty of experience playing live shows from small venues to festivals, including Warped Tour 2014, and playing with Paramore at the Soundwave 2013 festival in Australia.
Music is my ultimate passion, and we really want to get a move on into the world and start playing, touring, and just really trying to get as far as possible, whilst being inspiring to anyone we can. The thought and idea of standing out on a stage in front of people who look up to you to you is beyond amazing to us.
