ABOUT

Hey I'm Jos, a freelance architect. In my spare time, I like to create my own musical pieces by playing the guitar, alone or with others.

I have played the drums in a choir before, and had two bands where I used to play rhythm or lead guitar and sang backing vocals or leading position. Further, I played quite a big part in the creative process of writing the guitar parts, bass lines, vocal lines and lyrics.
I've always been very eager to create something of my own, because I feel that this provides the opportunity to express the real me.
However, playing some interesting covers, slightly tweaking them with my own style and sound, never bored me either.

Somehow, blues speaks to me a lot and I like to talk back to it. Therefore I have always liked rock music with that bluesy edge.
Also, the layers in symphonic rock are very appealing to me.
Lately, I've gained interest in the combination of electronic music and live instruments.

The audio files are all just me with guitar, to give an impression of the sound. Of course in combination with others there are a whole lot more possibilities when it comes to sound.

I'm a sucker for reverb, echo, delay and all that but would like to experiment with more effects, hence the interest in electronics.

Besides all of this, I like to believe I am a quite open mind, so if you've got any brilliant ideas for a duo, trio or band, or anything else, please surprise me!
