SEEKING

Vocalist, Keyboard.

ABOUT

We are looking for a keyboard player Male or Female to join us, currently 3 established musicians, myself, drummer and bass player who are joining up to form a new band. We know our way around the market and have a good idea of what and where we want to play, though the new member will have their input on an equal basis (Please no Heavy Rock or Metal Heads! Even though we like the music and have all played and sung it, it is not where we want to be).
We also have the opportunity of backing a young female vocalist who has a lot of stage experience in musicals but only a little experience on the band scene, she’s good and has great stage presence.
The keyboard player will determine where we go with the music we play, if he or she can sing, that will add another appealing dimension. There will also be some original songs mixed in with the band arranged covers and we are planning recording within the next six months.
Genre – is open, however we do want to entertain, again we are far removed from being self indulgent, we want to make our work pay as well as enjoy it so playing for the audience is paramount.
So we are really seating ourselves in the R & B, Popular, Soul, Blues, Funk, Country, Dance, Light Jazz/Latin pocket - (We realise this is a wide range but we do have the ability to play it, so can mix and match our sets to appeal to a mixture of audiences) this will make what we do very saleable

Influences

Our influences are spread across 50 years of modern music , we all have personal taste and have all played and been influence by Rock & Roll, Soul, Motown, Reggae, Blues, Country so whatever your own personal take on music there will be a good scope for a good musician to shine in.
I have recently been writing in a more relaxed mode, semi Country/Pop/Country Rock style there are a number of original demos on this site as well as a few covers, but in general we will write to the pocket the band wishes to be in.
