Lead Guitar, Keyboard, Background Singer.

ABOUT

I'm a 50-something guitar-based songwriter with an ever-lengthening repertoire of complete original songs. I perform solo but also with my band Stonyhills as the lead singer/guitarist.

*** We are currently recruiting for a backing vocalist. ***
Our songs often have intricate vocal harmonies, which would benefit from a singer with a strong voice (preferably tenor/alto) and a good ear. Creative lead guitar or keyboard skills would also be great, but not essential. Please get in touch if interested.

I am also looking for musicians to co-write, record, produce, and perform with. I have my own home production setup and skills (improving).

My themes include politics, power, and the personal frustrations of mid-life and rocky relationships. I feel there's not so much music being released that is relevant to my generation, so there's a rich seam to mine.

Some of my tunes are tuneful rock/pop songs and ballads, some more folksy, but all with potential for big rock-out moments and emotion. I am told that my songs are very original and catchy, but at the same time quite familiar-sounding. I guess that's a good thing.

Please check out the videos on this page, my band page www.stonyhills.band, and my soundcloud: https://soundcloud/elliot-freeman-2
