    I would love to start a band,

    but I have two problems: I have trouble writing songs, and I need other members. Is anyone in the NC area interested in starting a band? Or if you aren't NC-based, I'm totally up to doing a YouTube band project

    What's Up? Let's Do This.

    I sing, I write lyrics, don't play any instruments, but I can hum it and YOU can get it out thru your fingertips, lol. I have tons of material by way of living a lonely existence, and if you're here, I'll just bet you do too. What are we waiting for?

    Did all of the bassists fall off the planet?

    I need a good one that can check into a groove and stay there. You tie it all together. I also need a singer who thinks their voice can move mountains. Confidence is key
