Seeking musicians for melodic hard rock/alt. metal band (brentwood / oakley)

Hello fellow musicians,

Warning: Sort of long post but if you aren’t serious/passionate enough then you’re not what I’m looking for anyway :)
(Substance abusers need not apply)

I am a guitarist, baritone singer and songwriter from the East Bay Area starting up a hard rock/prog/alternative metal band to play mostly originals, possibly a cover here and there to mix it up but our main focus would be originality. I want to take this far as possible.
I’m tired of time flying by and my passion going to waste! I have some great material to work with.
I feel it is time to take things to the next level and I am looking for like-minded musicians who want to work together to get there. Whether it’s starting at the very bottom playing smaller gigs to going on tour. Let’s build something awesome and let our passion for music become something more than just a hobby.

I have been playing guitar for about 15 years, and singing for about just as long but took several music/singing courses in college to improve my knowledge and vocal skills. I have also picked up some bass and drums along the way. I currently play bass in another prog. rock band as well.

I would be the lead singer in this band but would definitely like to find musicians who can do backing harmonies if possible, but not a deal breaker!

Seeking: drummer, 2nd guitarist, and bassist.
(It would be preferable if the drummer was located in the East Bay to establish a practice space however I have a spot to convert into one if need be)

Please be proficient with your instrument, not looking for beginners BUT if you think you have what it takes, let's meet up and see what you got!

The type of style I imagine for this band is not “screamo” and not just a modern metal band but more of a blend of old and new. Sort of an 80's style metal mixed with new prog. rock/metal. I have a style of writing I can't quite label but it has a focus on melody and riff creativity to be catchy and epic sounding. I am big on memorable melodies in my music and not just making noise, every note counts.

Some of my influences but not limited to: Alter Bridge, Trivium, Tremonti, Disturbed, Shinedown, 10 Years, Evanescence, Breaking Benjamin, Staind, Metallica, Iron Maiden, Alice In Chains, Boston, Green Day, Three Days Grace,
Avenged Sevenfold, Theory of a Deadman, A Perfect Circle, Tool, etc.

Anyway if you are interested please get in touch and tell me about yourself. If you have any samples or songs you would like to share send them as well. I will also send samples of some recent material and we can see if we would be a good fit.

Let’s make something great and fulfilling.
Thanks for looking 🤘🏼😎🤘🏼
