This is a sample of a song for my new band. This is a style I was fond of many moons ago. I never thought I would return to a small alternative rock line up. But hey it’s easy to do at home. I was a teenage home studio recording artist in the 80’s. How come I sound like I am a beginner today? I will apologize for technical issues later. For now let me introduce you to my band. Rhythm guitar, bass, percussion and drums. This video (please excuse the idolatry) contains major influencers. I grew up in Seattle/Bellevue. Heart coincidentally was a major influence. In particular the chronically under-rated Nancy Wilson. Jimi Hendrix was the most important musician guitarist in the world, straight out of Seattle until his replacement Kurt Cobain came on the scene. I was a young adult, aspiring artist when Grunge was put on the map. I was still far from making a name for myself in the early 90’s. If you ever hear me say “I have been putting ads out looking for musicians to form bands with since I was a child.” I would be referring to The Rocket circa 1983. KJET was my soul mate when I was in high school. It went out of business before I finished college. I heard Red Dress and Visible Targets on this station. They played local bands. While the two above bands may not be found on a list of influential Seattle bands trust me, they influenced a lot of people. Both bands wrote two of my favorite songs “of all time.” Money Dreams and Mechanical Man. Shout out to alternative rock.
