Description

Hi. My name's Rich, and I'm a songwriter. I'm currently the main songwriter in a funky, upbeat band called Dropkicks. You can listen to some of my songs at the web link I've included (beneath the email button at the top right-hand corner of this page).

Unfortunately, the singers in my current band have less availability than they used to, which is meaning we're doing gigs much less frequently than I'd like. I want to be doing music (writing, performing, recording) much more regularly than my current band allows, so I've decided to search for a new singer to work with!

And that's where you come in. :-)

I'm looking for a singer that ticks the following boxes:

- Has a great voice (!)
- Has good availability
- Is self-motivated and keen to start up a music project
- Ideally, you'd be creative-minded and interested in co-writing songs (but if not, this isn't essential)
- The type of music I like to write / play is up tempo funk / soulful / groove-driven music so ideally I'd like to find someone with a funky / soulful quality to their voice to really inject some personality into the music (think plenty of energy :-))
- At this stage, I'm open to both male and female voices
- Ideally, you would play an instrument (preferably guitar or keyboard) to a reasonable level (but again this isn't essential)

In terms of the project, the goal would be to form a band and write original music which we perform live. I already have a great drummer and bassist involved, and me on guitar/backing vocals/keys. So the plan would be to simply add your lead vocals and go from there.

There is no money in this project currently - and given it's difficult to earn money doing originals at the outset, there may well be little/no money in this project for the foreseeable future. So you need to want to make and perform music for the love of it, not for the money.

If you listen to the tracks at the web link I've included that will give you an idea of our level and the sort of music we like to play. However, we like to keep things fresh, so we're open to trying out new styles and mixing styles - so long as it has some soul, some energy, and some melody.

If this sounds like an opportunity you'd be interested in, please email me a link to where I can listen to your vocals online, with a message outlining your availability and interest in the project.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Rich :-)
