ABOUT

Hey I'm Jos, I like to create my own music by playing the guitar and produce tunes digitally.

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, I love playing some interesting covers, when I can slightly tweak them to my own style and sound.

I've always liked rock music with that bluesy edge.
Lately, I've gained interest in the combination of electronic music and live instruments, which I'm now writing and producing myself.

I'm a sucker for reverb, echo, delay and all that, hence the interest in electronics with all it's possibilities.

I've got a soundcloud profile where I'm exploring combinations of electronic input, vocals, guitar and keys/ synth:

At the moment, we're on the lookout for a keys/synth player (preferably with some feel for vocals to sing harmonies and backings) to add to the band setup which currently is drummer, bass player, guitar (2nd vocals), guitar (main vocals). We're rehearsing and creating more material as we go, taking our stuff to the stage asap.
