SEEKINGPiano, Keyboard, Acoustic Guitar, Lead Guitar.
I`ve been playing the clarinet for almost 25 years & did a degree in music and dance a few years back now. Also did my grade 8 whilst i was at it!!
In the last few years I have started to sing. I have a fairly low voice and have mostly been singing jazzy numbers - Madelaine Peyroux, the odd Norah Jones and a healthy dose of Nina Simone, to name but a few... with a bit of clarinet in the instrumental sections for good measure! And I`m currently having some singing tuition to keep me on track.
I would consider singing with a jazz or electronic band/act, lead or backing. Also up for thowing bits of clarinet in here and there, where appropriate!
Alternatively I would also be happy to team up with a guitarist or pianist, get some rep together and do some open mic nights with a view to gigging.
I love bands who have character - a unique style, a good sense of humour... check out the Zen Hussies if you haven`t seen them, they are brilliant & I would love to hook up with like minded musicians.
As for the clarinet, I am prolific at reading from sheet music. I am now venturing away from this tie, working things out by ear and making that transition from classical to other genres. If you are interested in any of the above, do get in touch:
