Experienced guitar player looking for a new project
I'm Cris. I just moved to London for an internship and I'm very excited to get back into playing. I used to play extensively (over 30 shows across five years) but I took a break within the last three. With tons of motivation, I'm now looking to start a new project with like-minded individuals (or join an existing band).
I played in three bands of completely different styles (post rock, progressive metal and pop) and got various influences from post-punk, shoegaze and art-rock to jazz fusion, djent and experimental. I also studied the piano for 6 years at a very young age, which provided me with a decent theoretical background.
My main influences include modern prog (Arcane Roots, The Contortionist, Haken, Leprous, Opeth, Tool, Porcupine Tree) and post-rock (We Lost The Sea, Sigur Ros, GY!BE, Meniscus) but I'm pretty much open to anything that is not blues rock or country.
I'm mostly interested in original material but I'm also down for covers. Keen to gig extensively. Willing to rehearse up to 3-4 times a week. I have a PRS SE 7-string and a Squire. If this sounds of any interest to you, I look forward to receiving your message.
