Band to Join, Vocalist - Soprano.

ABOUT

Former guitarist from Few Heads, I am now looking for a new female front-woman/song-writing partner to start a band with in the Portsmouth/Southampton area (I'm in High Wycombe at present but will be moving to P/S area later in 2020 when COVID-19 issues permit, and have friends and family there). If you play an instrument, even better, but the voice/song-writing partnership is the thing. I have masses of material ready for lyrics and melodies. Voice is ideally Ellie Rowsell/Elena Tonra/Arrow de Wilde - 'edgy'. I don't sing; I just stand at the back and drive the sound with a strong melodic guitar backing.

My guitar sound/approach is very influenced by Johnny Marr. I'm not really into the 'guitar solo thing' and prefer to take a more holistic view of a song but it's unmistakably a guitar-driven sound. My songs aspire towards grunge but always end up being far more melodic/riff/arpeggio-driven with rather odd chords sometimes. I am very committed to the aim of rehearsing up an original set, and then gig/record, but performance is my number one objective.
