Starting an Indie Rock/Indie Pop Band

Hi, I’m Kevin! I’m 23 years old and I’m looking to start an original band.

Music vibe:
My target is first and foremost to create honest lyrics that people can relate to. My second target is to make music that’s fun to listen to. For me, fun music is anything with a good beat and a fairly upbeat sound.

Here are some of the sounds I’d like to emulate:
Coldplay
Beach Bunny
The Wrecks
Valley
COIN
MisterWives
The Killers

Band vibe:
I’m not trying to create the next global sensation of a band. I just want to make some cool original music with some chill people, and maybe play a show or two if things go well. People would ideally have an open/creative mind about writing their own parts.

Who I’m looking for:
Instruments: lead guitar, keyboard, drums, bass
Age: ideally looking for folks in their 20s
Skill level: ~intermediate
Commitment: I’d like to practice around once a week, if possible

About me:
I’ve been playing rhythm guitar, singing, and writing songs for ~2 years. Before that, I played french horn all throughout school/college, and learned piano at a young age, so I have a good music background. I’m located in West Loop, but will soon be relocating to Old Town. I do not have access to a large rehearsal space, but we can figure that out later. So far I have 6 or so songs written, just needing to put them with a full band.
