12/16/18-Female Singer/Vocalist/Lyricist (ISO Creating Something New)
I just moved to Denver in October after camping/traveling around the USA for eight (8) months. I have been actively searching for musicians to start a band or join a band. Over the years I have tried very hard to learn how to play several instruments. I have no hand eye coordination, and when I try to concentrate on attempting to play an instrument (not well), I find that I lose the power and intent behind my voice. I hope that makes sense.
I love music. I love musicians, and have the utmost respect for people who master their chosen instrument(s). I am hopeful that I am able to get together with some talented folks to create something from nothing, for collaboration is just so magical.
About me: I’m a young 40-something year old. :-) Been singing since I’m 5. Been writing since I’m 17. I was the singer, lyricist, manager, and publicist of a funk band in Florida for over six years and have performed and recorded with several bands in the Florida area for over 20. I do not drink. Don’t care if you do. I’m 420 friendly.
The sound: Catchy, yet with depth. Danceable, but it is ok if you just sit and bob your head. Soulful with a little edge. Making the entire band sound like one big beautiful instrument. (acoustic lounge comes to mind)
Performing live is spiritual. It brings solace to the heart.
So after all that: I am in search of kind, talented, funny, humble, drama-free, ego-less, team players who are about the music and playing live.
Thank you for reading.

This was LITERALLY written while under the covers late at night. I had been writing the lyrics and humming the tune and I needed to get it out. I hit record on my phone and sang it VERY low so not to wake my neighbors.
