Hey! I'm a singer, guitarist, and percussionist looking for people to collaborate and make music with. I write some of my own stuff and also play covers.
Are you looking for a singer who's into sonic experimentation and fluidity between genres? If so, we should be in touch.
I'm open to many genres (see influences below for some ideas - though I like even more than is listed there). I've been playing guitar for 25 years and have been singing all my life. I was originally trained in West African drumming...now I mostly improvise with percussion.
Mostly I'd like to be singing on stage again eventually (and/or recording). I'm open to playing my instruments, too, depending on the situation.
**Please have samples on your page or ready to send if you contact me!***
-FYI, I will not record vocals on tracks for your music. I've been ripped off this way and don't do it anymore. Collaborative efforts with the intention of working together long-term and performing only, please.
Genres of interest for vocals: Most anything (no vocal fry screaming plz)- rock, hard rock, jazz, funk, indie, acoustic, experimental, dreamy, alternative, Latin (canto en español), soul, R&B
Genres of interest in drumming: All world music, Latin, hip hop, funk, soul
If you're curious, just contact me. My musical interests are vast and you never know.
