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:
I'm on the lookout for a drummer, bass player and keys/synth player (preferably musicians with some feel for vocals to sing harmonies and backings) to rehearse with and create more material.
I want to take my tunes to the stage, spice them up a bit for the live experience and form a band around them.
If you're keen to give that a go, send me an email or text:

That Voice in Your Head
That Voice in Your HeadMellow melodies, supported by energy. An attempt to marry live instruments and vocals with an electronic underlayer.

Marvels New Hero
Marvels New HeroA try out in electronic music. It ended up sounding a bit like a possible theme for a comic book action movie, hence the title.
