Hello! I’m a full-time singer/songwriter/artist based near Colchester, Essex. I have been working and gigging with acoustic guitarists for the last 3 years performing my original music live as well as gigging with acoustic covers. I have just gone full-time since June this year. I bought out my debut EP independently in May this year, which I co-wrote with my previous guitarist and is available for digital download/streaming as well as in hard copy. I have been busy recording further material to release in 2016 and for my next EP/Album. I have been working alongside top producers and I’m writing all the time. To perform my new music live, I ideally need a band and I’m hoping to find passionate, reliable musicians to work and perform my new original music with. It may mean that I have a handful of different musicians I can possibly gig with at a time or a consistent band to work and perform with. My current guitarist is keen to be involved, so initially I'm after drummers, bass players and keys. My music is very hard to pin-point to a specific genre, however, the strongest influences are Jazz, Blues, Soul, R&B and Pop. My website is www.helenconnellymusic.
