My name is Andrew, I'm 26 and a bass player and song-writer I also play a little acoustic and sing backing, sometimes a little drums / percussion etc.
I've been in a few bands in my time and done numerous gigs at weddings, bars, clubs, band competitions, events etc. My most recent band was called Contract with whom I recorded three EP's and wrote a load of music (check out the website at http://www.contractband.co.uk to hear our stuff).
Ideally I would be looking to write again, to produce our 'own stuff' and to experiement with all kinds of instruments, although keep main 'rock / blues / alternaitve / indy / jazz / similar' theme going on (if you listen to the music on the above website, you'll catch my drift I'm sure Really I'll play anything with a good melody, although I don't usually play metal.
I'd love to work with one or more female vocalists, perhaps some piano, good percussionists or other singer / songwriters.
So, surprise me - what have you guys got on offer? Want some help / input writing songs / lyrics? Or maybe it's just a covers band but with a good collection of well rehearsed covers behind you?
In terms of travel I can do anywhere South, West or East London, so long as it's not too far out (beyond Richmond or similar) and of course preferring the SW post code. Randomly I can also do Oxfordshire as I spend a lot of time there, or potentially even somewhere in between if the opportunity is interesting enough.
I look forward to hearing from you, please get in touch
