The Social Experience......Helping the Unsigned Artist Get Heard!!!
As summer turns to autumn I would like to personally thank all of those who were kind enough to vote for GALLEON in the Opening Act musical competition. I am proud that we advanced to the fourth round of voting. Unfortunately we did not advance to the fifth round, as we did not place high enough in the voting. Again, thank you all for your kind and strong support, and as they say in baseball, WAIT TIL' NEXT YEAR!
I would also like to point out that those living in the Stone Mountain/Pine Lake area of Georgia can now enjoy the original music of GALLEON on their radios or hi-fi systems. Just set your FM tuner to 88.9 MHz. The music of GALLEON will be broadcast several times a day. Check out our music and let me know what you think. GALLEON RADIO is on the air!
And now I return you to my regularly-scheduled post:
Attention musicians in the Stone Mountain/Pine Lake area of Georgia:
Local band GALLEON is making necessary changes in order to accelerate our artistic and commercial growth. We need the following:
1. DRUMMER with chops, taste, control and stamina;
2. BASS GUITARIST who rocks hard but knows not to overplay; and either
3. LEAD GUITARIST who "smokes" without upstaging the lead vocalist; or
4. MULTI-WIND PLAYER with rock style, not jazz or fusion style.
Our music is all original, highest quality, and bridges the genres of rock, folk-rock and modern country.
As indicated above, I prefer to work with musicians from the Stone Mountain/Pine Lake area of Georgia. Ability to sing harmony is helpful but not essential. What is essential, however, are the ability to learn new material quickly and the willingness and ability to take directions. GALLEON is NOT a democracy. I strive for continual improvement and excellence in our sound and professionalism in our approach, as I plan to take the band into the studio as soon as we are ready to record as many of our original songs as possible. As for live performance bookings, they are upcoming but not immediate.
Feel free to check out some of our music here on our Poze web page or on our ReverbNation web page (https://reverbnation.com/galleonrocks) and judge our merits for yourself. Then contact me ASAP if you are interested in being part of something special. If you cannot commit to an original music project, don’t waste your time or mine, as this endeavor wouldn’t be right for you. I need people who believe in this and whose heart is in it for the long haul.
