SEEKINGBand to Join, Bass Guitar, Electronic Music, Flute, Other Percussion, Saxophone, Trombone, Trumpet, Violin, Vocalist.
Just moved back to London after 8 years living, busking and playing on the continent. I released a Rumba influenced EP in Spanish, French and Catalan this year and working on my proper debut in English this coming year. It's gonna be a mix of live and electronic taking in Indie, Alt-Rock, Post-Rock, Hip-Hop, Electronica and Folk.
I also busk and am looking for collaborators. Once I have the album finished I'm going to take it around Europe playing and busking.

I grew up with Michael Jackson, MC Hammer and my Dad's Blues, Chuck Berry and Buddy Holly tapes. I learned the chords of every Nirvana song for my teenage band and started writing songs. When my parents went away I raided my Dad's vinyls and got into Led Zep, Classic Rock and 60's and 70's Soul. At Uni I got into House, Big-Beat and Techno whilst trying to meld indie-rock with electronica in a Cooper Temple Cause, Primal Scram, Super Furry Animals way but with a bit more Underworld.
I dig on old school Hip-Hop, freestyle and ambient stuff DJ Shadow and RJD2.
In France I got into Django and Jacques Brel. In Spain I went mad for Flamenco but can't play it for sh*t. I can pull off an ok Rumba.
From America Latina I got into all sorts. I took a year of Djembe lessons with a traditional teacher from Mali.
There's not much I dislike
It's gotta make people go- huh?!? and/or dance their arses off.

Never Get Out
Never Get OutA weird piece of music for the start of an EP. We're all scared of dying, hoping someone will listen to this when I'm gone is my religion, what's yours? P.S. Why is it more politicians of the left are murdered than of the right?

OctopusA 15 min composition. Heard this line in a conspiracy documentary and couldn't let it go so uncelebrated
LudditeTrying to get good at working to deadlines by writing, producing and posting a song every Monday evening... this one took two Mondays and a Friday evening... I need to get quicker!

Simple Life (demo)
Simple Life (demo)Someone in London (Preferably East/North) wanna put bass/cello on this? Open to any crazy ideas
FlagsI felt so lost on Friday, changed this song which was initially inspired by Catalan nationalism to add a verse about Brexit, I already have a verse in French and might do another version with that later, but for now this is it. Hastily assembled with the incredible quick and generous help or Julian on keys, Andy on Bass and Wilda Gallardo with some amazing backing vocals... thanks so much guys, one love, no nations no borders.
