SEEKING

Band to Join, Vocalist - Bass, Lead Guitar, Other Percussion, Saxophone, Keyboard.

ABOUT

Alto lead and background singer & songwriter with a bittersweet, warm voice and some stage experience from both the UK and overseas. Can play the Cajun, the Tsango woodwind and the Alto recorder flute.
I am now part of a trio with two experienced, excellent musicians. We do jazz-funk-R&B covers and have our own original material as well. We are looking for a percussionist, a keyboard player, a saxophone and/or violin player.
We are offered some smaller local gigs in South London from the end of 2017 onwards.
We have the opportunity to practise in my home and we also have a very nice studio to go to nearby.
Anyone aspiring to join us should be willing to travel to South London, should not be a heavy smoker (at least, you won't be able to smoke at the premises we practise/record), and should be really committed. We are kind, respectful, intuitive and emphatic people, listening to each other and being flexible with musical ideas, and we expect any further member to be alike. In other words, don't come with an overgrown ego :)

Feel free to contact me monioyeyele at dot com if interested.
