Hi. I have recently moved back to Gateshead and want to start playing music again. I studied music and I am a keen alternative singer/songwriter with about 20 songs written for this project, which I'd love to rewrite and improve with the right people. Check out the demos I have posted and let me know if you're interested. I'd recommend headphones as they are just home recordings! But you can get an idea of the sound I have. Definitely like an alt/indie sound and not so keen on doing any covers really. Could potentially start out acoustically until things evolve. Possibly as a duo etc but looking to take this as far as it can go so looking for committed people who are a good fit and have spare time to dedicate.

Any gender welcome, age range around 18-35 as I would like to push this and make it a career with like minded people

I take less inspiration from music than just life itself, but I like to listen to Arcade Fire, Interpol, BRMC, The XX, Strokes, Joy Division, Hot Chip, Maximo Park, Fever Ray and many more
