ABOUT

Established singer looking for hip young(ish) thing with considerable talent to play trad. blues/1940's jazz/cabaret/roadhouse still-swillin' country with. I have stage experience, and I can sing everything from Etta James to Amy Winehouse. I also have a passel of original songs, with more arriving every day. Played in Devil Baby Freakshow, looking to do raucous acoustic tunes your grandaddy might have liked.

Members Of Band

Just me so far. I need a good guitarist who's comfortable with playing by ear, and taking direction (though not sh*t) from a girl. Preferably I'd like someone who's a bit of a hipster style-wise, no younger than 31, and no older than 42. (I'm 39, and I find it helps to have the same cultural cues when writing music together.)

EQUIPMENT

I have a mike and an amp that isn't a vocal amp. It works for small acousitc gigs, which is where we'll be playing until we get used to playing together.
