The word band, for me, could be a little misleading. I bill myself as a solo quartet. I do all the tracks, lay them down, and then play live with it giving the sound of anywhere from 4 to 10 instruments playing. I have done over 10,000 arrangements this way and over 100 original pieces..jazz, Latin, ballads. I have now completed a muscial/lyrical story and working on the second one.
I have only been playing 5 years (self taught) and professionaly for about 3 years. During that time, though, I have recorded 16 cds, including a children's one and 2 with all original songs. I also have written a musical - story line and 40 songs matching scences..still puzzling over lyrics.
Play live, mostly corporate functions. Have also played in a number of cafes/restaurants/hotels.
During my 'recovery' period (following the accident) I spent a lot of time at Starbucks. I wrote 12 short stories here and the music in the background led me to jazz.
Tyros 2 keyboard, Boss recording equipment, Mackie 350v2
Many of my songs are well suited to tv/movies...I guess I just need someone to listen to them.
