SEEKINGVocalist - Soprano, Vocalist - Alto.
Moulettes seek an additional female vocalist (instrumentalist would be an added bonus)
Very busy signed four-piece band with over 60 gigs booked in the UK and abroad until autumn with more gigs being booked all the time. We are playing lots of the main festivals this year (Bestival, Camp Bestival, Cropredy, Beautiful Days, Glastonbury and Greenbelt etc.) and are currently writing our third album for release in Spring 2014 (first single January 2014). The kinds of music we admire range from Bjork, Pentangle, Fairport Convention, Tune-Yards and Tom Waits to Shostakovich.
The singer preferably needs to be Brighton-based as we will be rehearsing/writing at least once a week in Brighton on top of gig commitments. This is open to discussion if you are happy with the traveling but, from past experience, being based in different cities is problematic.
We are looking for someone committed, charismatic, flexible and creative!
Your need to be a very good singer (preferably soprano/high range), competent at writing and holding harmonies as well as taking the lead at times. All four members of the band sing currently but we want another female vocalist to add to the mix. We are looking for someone who sings in a natural and unaffected english accent. The rest of the line up is Cello, Bassoon/Autoharp, Double Bass/electric bass, Guitar, Drums. We are open to any other instrument suggestions, be it acoustic or electric.
Ideally we’d like you to be able to play something but if not you should be happy to add percussion or play simple lines on basic instruments provided.
Send us some links to music or videos with you singing to moulettes.singer@.co.uk and then we’ll get in touch about the auditioning process.
If you want to see what we do/have done then look at our website and youtube accounts. You can also hear our back-catalogue on Spotify.
