Exalted Dirt is a long-time recording project name, and starting in 2016 I began experimenting with forming a band. My own style is classic progressive metal. The band focuses on hard rock renditions of modern praise and worship songs, borrowing from a range of artists from Lauren Daigle and Kari Jobe to Seventh Day Slumber and Skillet. As of August 2018, my primary interest is to find a bass player (to free me up as a guitarist) or guitarist who can do some half-decent shredding (no virtuosos needed). A secondary initial option would be a keyboard player or cellist who is capable of doing such leads.
