I'm a Manchester based musician/songwriter who, after 4 years playing in a 6 piece indie band, is looking for a change. I write all my own music and am looking for a singer/lyricist to work with, to complete the instrumentals (of which there are many) I've recorded over the years, as well as come up with new material and from there see where things go.

Looking ideally for an interesting female vocal (my favourite artists include Cocteau Twins, Björk, Tori Amos) although any decent singer who offers something different from the norm will definitely be considered.

Please check out some of my instrumentals on here and Soundcloud (https://soundcloud.com/nicholasr-1/sets/instrumentals) and let me know if you're interested in a collaboration :)
