ABOUT

I'm an ex-pat Australian, recorded & performed a lot of material including on major labels (Sony BMG) and have done a number of TV and movie scores. Settled in London in late 2013. I've just launched (in London, June 2018) my 12th LP 'Deal With Your Disenchantment' a 21stC woman's and contemporary political update on '60s/ early '70s Dylan - all original material. We are currently a 4 piece, gigging in London every 6 weeks, but our drummer has indicated he'll be moving on soon.

So we are looking for a drummer to play live the tracks from 'Deal With Your Disenchantment' live, and we'll also start introducing back catalogue. But if you also have material of your own, and want to collaborate on producing and playing that too over time, that would be great if we are on the same wavelength.

We'd also like to find a string (violin or viola or cello) player who perhaps likes to sing too - there are string parts and backing vox on several tracks.

We like putting thought into band look/costumes and have already done a couple of video clips, there is a creative visual style element there.

You can see some of the clips on the video page here and my YouTube channel. www.youtube/nicoleskeltys

Also, will be going back to Australia in Feb and doing some gigs, be great if you were up for coming along for the adventure.

Life is very short, let's play!
