      Hey everyone!

      I'm fairly new to vwvortex, but I've received quite a bit of helpful information from many users on here already. My car knowledge is limited, but I figured I could at least give back a little by giving away some music. I've been a musician for about 15 years, and I've been making music with this group of guys for a majority of that time. When we really decided to make this a career path, we were around 17 and 18 years old. I'm 23 now, and in that time we've released 2 full length albums and a new EP. Those 3 releases, plus a makeshift collection of demos and unreleased material is available for free download or stream at http://www.gentlemenandscholars1.bandcamp.com

      I know its not much, but I hope some people like it. Feel free to pass it around, we're currently recording a new EP due out in late September.

      Thanks a lot man! In fact, thank you for taking the time to go out of your way to post a reply! We've got more music coming, but for now there is a decent amount on there and available!

      What do you play? Do you write collaboratively or is there one person steering the ship? I'm always curious about the process...

      Sounds good btw, production really suits the music.

      Thanks for the complement! I play guitar and piano for the band. We utilize 3 guitars, so its a bit of a challenge to organize or orchestrate all of it without making everything too complicated, but I like to think that we've found a happy medium.

      As for our writing process, I'd have to ultimately say its a joint venture. Don't get me wrong, either Jeremiah (our vocalist) or Shane (bassist) will typically bring an idea to the table, and then it just becomes a jam session. After some layering, part writing, and serious contemplation, we may end up with a rough idea of the song structure. Personally, I always write my parts or my riffs better in a studio environment. We don't like to put elements in our songs or on our records that we can't reproduce live- we've always been and always will be a live band. But, I like to take that as a challenge. When I say I play keyboards, I do, but my stage set up consists of my guitar, my guitar rig (amp and pedals), a midi keyboard controller and a macbook pro. I use the macbook for all of my piano, organ, and instrumental sounds that I play out on the keyboard.
