ABOUT

Moving to Indy via LA/Nashville:

Soulful (female) singer/songwriter (and when necessary, keyboard player and producer), Lij, SEEKS the right partners in co-creating an Indianapolis-based band, with the right keyboard/piano player and/or guitarist (ambient electric + jazz acoustic skills), bass player (upright skills important) and drummer (with percussion skills). Engineer/producer contacts also desired.

Looking for:

Passionate, driven, committed, talented big-picture oriented musicians with soul, jazz and/or ambient sensibilities seeking to build something fulfilling, meaningful . . . and do the work necessary to get to the point where this is what puts food on the table.

Your heart is just as important as your skill and your face.

If you're interested (please check out the music first and reply only if you want to be a part of who we are and what we're about, only if you really dig it), please reply with the following:

*Musical bio (what you play, how long you've been playing, what your experience has been)
*Musical/personal vision and values statement (what matters to you, how you go about achieving that, what drives you)
*At least one accurate, current picture
*A recording of you playing, if one exists (try to make one if you don't already have it - preferably an interpretation of one of my songs)
*Your current availability (including when you're available for an audition/interview)
*Your top five influences
*All of your social-networking links (myspace, facebook, twitter, etc.)
