Hello, I’m looking for one or more people to play music with and maybe write songs/make music together, too.
I like almost all kinds of music, but what I tend to record/write tends to sound a bit like drum-machine-driven weirdo pop/rock/soul-like stuff.
I play several instruments and sing. I do all of this poorly. I don’t really care what instrument you play, anything is good.
I added a laundry list of things I like below, maybe that helps give an idea of where my tastes lie. I also like all kinds of electronic music, but I left that out.
I have a few different Soundcloud projects that I use for different vibes of music I’ve made, I’m happy to share some stuff.
Anyway, if any of this sounds interesting, reach out and maybe tell me what you have been listening to lately.
Here are some things that I like:
