I am a musician who plays and writes professionally for several projects at a time. My newest originals project is kind of indie/goth/4AD direction and is running under the same name I used in 1998 for an album back then: "Vam".
The line-up for now is likely to be minimal - just vocal, guitar, and drum-machine/synth-sequencer. Live bass and drums would most likely be added on once there's enough work to do so.
I'm influenced by many groups, such as the Cure, the Smiths, and Blonde Redhead.
