ABOUT

I am a singer, male, 19 years old, sophomore in college. I am looking for female singers or other male singers with wide vocal ranges to maybe be a duo, or hopefully a group of young singers/songwriters alternating lead vocals, duets and background vocals, all at the same time, creating original songs, music and a sense of camaraderie and brother/sisterhood.
A group I am influenced by greatly is Delta Rae. And I will post a few links to some of their songs. But they are a brother and sister and two of their friends, who make songs and all of their songs have a different soloist/duet leading the song.
Here are some of their songs:

Dance in the Graveyards

Bottom of the River
://m./watch?v=ji5y9NF8rXg
Chain on Love
://m./watch?v=qnd9yIWsfRA

Also some of the music I'm inspired by as far as duets and harmonies are The Civil Wars and JohnnySwim:

Johnnyswim - Annie
://m./watch?v=bz_bUjPMAAM
Johnnyswim - Home
://m./watch?v=APoRFLtD8z4
The Civil Wars - Poison and Wine
://m./watch?v=WfzRlcnq_c0
The Civil Wars - Falling
://m./watch?v=tkxFA7nzLFg
The Civil Wars - Birds of a Feather
://m./watch?v=XxDto6_4PKg

Here is also a link to two videos I did with my cousin last year, one is a cover of Roar by Katy Perry, and the other a cover of Save Room by John Legend, they aren't the best representations of my style. But here they are. :)

Please reply if you believe you are a talented singer, because the first step to success is having confidence in yourself and your gift. I am preferably looking for singers between the ages of 17-26, but am definitely not limited to that. I'm looking forward to hearing several different styles and talents. My name is Akin, and I'd love to work with you :D

Please feel free to email me whenever!
