I'm a guitarist/pianist and songwriter looking for an interesting singer to work with on some songs I have written. I’m looking to record these songs with a singer and some other musicians and get some stuff down after a long wait.



I’ve been working with other singers over the past few years but haven’t found the right fit – working with people for six months then it all stops and having to start again.



First of all, have a listen to my soundcloud which is mystringtheory . Please don’t reply unless you have listened to the music first. I’d like to move on from what I’ve done before but it’s a starting point to move forwards. (It’s not me singing these songs).



If you're interested, drop me a line if:

- you are into this kind of music (if it’s not your thing, it’s not going to be very productive)

- you have some recordings you can send me or show me (even something recorded on a phone)

- you are enthusiastic about getting involved



I’m looking for an original voice – not particularly a voice that is of a set genre (eg jazz, soul, X-factor, etc). Anything a bit different would be interesting, I like voices and bands like Thom Yorke, Bat for Lashes, Alt-J, Martina Topley-Bird, Bon Iver, Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Nick Drake, Radiohead, Jeff Buckley, Portishead, etc. I’m looking for someone who doesn’t mind taking direction at times but also can obviously let their creativity free as well. Not too much vibrato or “oversinging”.



I’d really like to explore the kind of Bristol sound which is dark, funky, soulful, mixing electronic with real instruments, a bit edgy. A bit of attitude is important in this – a can-do approach and also a bit leftfield in how to present music. Not necessarily traditional song structures. Songs that could be sinister or euphoric. Melancholy or medicinal. Dark yet uplifting.



It may just be a couple of recordings, if it worked out we could try more. It might involve co-writing in the future, it depends how things work out. It also might evolve into doing some gigs and trying the songs out live, but the priority is to get something recorded as this is really what lasts.



I live in Cambridge but my bassist friend lives in Camden, so we practise there usually. Some travel the other way occasionally might be appreciated some times. It’s 50 minutes from King’s Cross so doable, if not ideal. Also I am 42 in case that makes a difference.



Thanks.
