Yet another call to arms for folk musicians & singer-songwriters in the area. Here’s the gist from the ad:
Hi all, professional guitar player, composer and teacher here, looking to get a few musicians (particularly those who sing) to help me finish off a few pieces and songs I’ve started. Hoping to get them recorded this year with gigs to go with them.
This new project will cross a few genres, but be centred mostly around alt-folk and ambient rock. Part of it will be the reimagining of old folk tunes and the rest will be matching style songs written by us, including instrumentals. I’ve had this project running in the background for a while but need a few extra hands on deck to get it finished & now I have the spare time to devote to it this summer so let’s do this!
Also, if you are a singer-songwriter doing similar music already, and are looking for a collaborator or a guitarist/composer to flesh out your material, please do get in touch!
Ideally, you will be a performing, experienced and above all, talented musician somewhere between 20-40 (I’m 31). However, here a few things I will most likely not reply to:
*’Beginner Singers’ – those who can sing, but are only now looking for their first few gigs
*Metal or punk bands looking for guitarists
*guitarists (unless you are lead vocalists as well)
I play guitar of all shapes, sizes & genres. I also play pretty much everything in the guitar family from ukuleles and mandolins out to banjos and sitars (if you have one!) so guitar wise, I have it covered thanks!
Exceptions to this would be if you are already in a band performing the sort of material I describe above, and are looking for an additional guitar player/instrumentalist/songwriter. If so, send me your songs and what you’re looking for.
If you have any videos of your playing/singing, even better. Happy to meet up & jam to see how we gel. I should also point out at this juncture that I have regular work in a wedding/covers band which takes up a lot of my Fri & Sat nights. Gigs, therefore, would be fitted around these, such as weeknights, etc. If we could get this band to perform one gig a month on average by the end of this year, I would be happy, then we can take it from there…
Think you fit the bill? You can reply to me via this site it click on the original advert here to reply via email. You know what to do!
I look forward to hearing from you all!
