Band to Join, Acoustic Guitar, Vocalist.

ABOUT

Hi, although this is my personal listing I'm part of an Indie folk band playing original material (please see disclaimer in influences section below), and we're currently looking for a second guitarist. A change of singer means we're now a guitar down so we're looking to fill the gap. Based on how we've worked in the past, it will predominantly be acoustic guitar we're looking for but we're prepared to try anything and see if it works.
You can be any age and if you live some distance away I'm happy to come to you when working on songs without the rest of the band. Must be easy-going with good sense of humour, we work hard but whether rehearsing, playing live or recording, we want it to be fun. We're based in Needham Market and rehearse once a week (usually Thursdays). Once we get up and running, we'll be looking to gig and record. In a previous incarnation we recorded an album and played many gigs including Ipswich Music Day and a 3 day stint at the Warwick Folk Festival. I've included a few songs from a previous line up, please drop me a line if you're interested plus any recordings you may have. Thanks for reading.

Influences

For the lack of anything more accurate or interesting, we describe our music as Indie Folk but we get compared to Fleetwood Mac, The Beautiful South, Elvis Costello, so who knows. We aim for good songs with strong melodies (plus meaningful lyrics where we can) without worrying too much about which pigeon-hole we fit into.
