WHAT i AM SEEKING: Vocalists, female celtic or blues style, or male/female asian voices, tabla player, guitarists, double bassist, violinist, woodwind/pipes, sitar or indian instrument player, or other multi instrumentalists with eclectic tastes. Interest in traditional folk revisions, acoustic blues, jazz and eastern / world music, early music.. UK digital recording help would be great if you have studio or home recording skills.

MY MUSIC BACKGROUND: I have been a UK community radio presenter, new music live event promoter, and radio sales and management pioneer who helped create the permanent tier of local community stations in the UK from 1994-2006. I spent 2 years heading up the internet transition for The Band Register (then the world's largest database of bands and orchestras) and created new emergent music sites in Peter Whitehead's 'Best of Unsigned..' ..once described as ''the world's leading independent A&R team

' SONGS - ' SUN MOON & STAR' This is a home recording of self written material composed in 1994 and initial base tracks were recorded on a Fostex 4 track TAPE unit so it is not all digital quality and suffers accordingly. I am joined on this by Julian Zappala who plays some of the electric guitars, keyboards, sax and harmonica. I would very much like to re-record this on pro digital kit or in a studio with additional artists. I have played since informally but mainly have been working on business projects and have not written new material for many years. I am hoping to get involved again in making my own music
