Lugubrious singer-songwriter and wannabe Renaissance Man (with hat) seeks accomplice(s) for composition/gigs/recording/creative catharsis. Anxious to get out gigging!
Musicians of all and any persuasions considered, though I'm particularly looking for a very decent finger-style acoustic guitarist to be the bread to my butter.
Must be prepared to face witty and hilarious heckling along the lines of “cheer up mate!” etc…
Massive quantities of original material written, almost none of it finished. Genre non-specific, but with an emphasis on stark, baroque modern folk with plenty of scope for expansion into other genres.
Musicians from other disciplines are very welcome to make enquiries (keyboard would be a great augmentation - the marmalade to our bread and butter?).
Oh, I'm Tom by the way.

The first thing I tried recording. Came out ok, considering I didn't know what the hell I was doing. An important song for me, one I hope to do full justice to sometime.
The best recording I've done and my most 'accomplished' track - though also quite fluffy by my usual standards. Happy with everything but the under EQ'd, over-compressed vocals. Would go back and sort them out only the drive the session is on has sadly shuffled off this mortal coil...
