My name is Taylah, I'm a singer/songwriter, who goes by the name 'Spines'

I am desperately looking to form a band with a few others! I am currently working with a friend of mine who does music management for a music management company split between New York and London and she is keen to start gigging (with an opportunity for a gig next month!). Also if anyones producers/anyone good at mixing/mastering, hmu!

I'm looking for other members who are preferably no older than 30 (as im 22), who have similar taste musically and who are pretty openminded. im looking to create an atmospheric moody dream pop/folk feel with acoustic and electronic elements.

I am not at all looking to take creative control and delegate roles, I am entirely open to you composing your own parts, suggesting/criticizing/advising, doing your own thing really; im just looking for other like minded musicians (preferably another guitarist and drums/percussion, but if you play anything else feel free to email me aswell) to get together and have a fun at the end of the day.

I write all my own lyrics (think daughter/marika hackman-esque), have a bunch of songs, and play the acoustic guitar along side, but I feel pretty limited in what I am capable of creating alone and also lack in confidence.

I am very serious about this, like i have said i am working with a music management company, and am hoping to record an EP later this year! I have recorded a few demos at home, with a few being mentioned on blogs (i have one little magazine review also- v proud) as well my first song ghost being played on bbc introducing kent.

If you are interested in anyway, dont hesitate to email me or to message me on ; my name is Taylah Swaby-Wright (probably best to email me first as often the messages dont come through when we arent friends), and my soundcloud: brokenspines. Please email me before you add me on as i will probably decline your friend request if im not sure who you are!

Pls do not email me if you are in a band and want me to sing on your track that also happens to be of a completely different genre!
