My name is Alex! I just moved back to Texas recently and I am looking to collaborate, write, and essentially join forces with some serious musicians with the aim to create an established and formidable metal act in central Texas. I am 27 years old and have been playing string as well as other musical instruments for about 25 years to date. I have a decent grocery list of touring, domestic, and international performance experience as a session/full-time member for various acts inside(and out) of the metal spectrum.
Instruments I play:
-Bass(Fretless and Fretted)
-Basic drumming(but can read and write scores)
I can read/write charts and sheet music. I also use the latest DAWs and tablature software to compose as well as write/transcribe riffs.
Personally, I would love to do lead guitar with the opportunity to harmonize with another dedicated guitar player for a group if this were to happen.
This post is not just limited to wanting to form a group, but if there are other groups that are established that would like a session/live/touring multi-faceted musician this post may also apply to you as well.
I travel across the US for work as a live/session musician as well as live video engineer for the entertainment industry.
Distance is not an issue for me. I will drive to Austin/Dallas/San Antonio for serious inquiries only.
My influences include, but are not limited to: Paco De Lucia, Tchaikovsky, Stravinsky, Frans Liszt, Chopin, Lawson Rollins, Nita Strauss, Angel Vivaldi, Andy James, Allegaeon, Joe Pass, Pat Metheny, Brad Mehldau, Ella Fitzgerald, Rivers Of Nihil, Fallujah, Knocked Loose, Pantheon I, Behemoth, Keep Of Kalessin, Origin, The Faceless, Nile, Gojira, Ne Obliviscaris, Shining, Wintersun, Alluvial, Andromida, Decapitated, Fleshgod Apocalypse, Decrepit Birth, Nevermore, Sleep Terror, and lots of various artists within the framework of the extreme metal/jazz/classical spectrum.
Currently(temporarily) my social media platforms are under construction, but will gladly supply videos/links to other bands I have worked with as well as my own personal material/riffs.
Though I have provided my phone number as a point of contact, please just text me for I may be in the middle of a gig. Unless it’s at like 8am lol. My email is also available too!
it's ok to contact this poster with services or other commercial interests
