Soulful singer with versatile voice and attractive stage presence looking for a guitar player to accompany her for duo gigs serving up a wide variety of covers (Beatles, Amy Winehouse, Carole King, Elle King, Blind Faith, Etta James, Steely Dan, Bruce Springsteen, and more).
I've been turning down too many of these duo opportunities, so I'm looking to see who's out there and expand the group of guitarists I work with.
Acoustic or semi-acoustic guitar player preferred but whatever you feel most comfortable playing is most important.
Would love it if you could play a few per set while I go out and meet the audience. If you sing -great! If not, instrumentals would be cool too. I want you to have opportunities to shine. I'm not a stage hog or a diva.
We should rehearse a few times to get material down, then gig and gig some more. I don't see this being rehearsal-intensive once we get started.
Currently gigging in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and hope to move into DC. Willing to go where the gigs are and would appreciate the same attitude from you.
I've got multiple projects going - this search is for The Liz Springer Duo.

Me and....you? I work with a couple of different guitar players to fill dates, but they aren't always available due to their teaching schedules. I don't play an instrument (yet), so you should be comfortable being the only instrumentalist.
I secure the gigs, manage the website & FB promotions, provide PA, make sure you are paid (and sometimes fed and watered LOL). You kick ass on guitar, help me set up PA and with stage patter.
I take my music seriously. so I would love to work with someone who considers music their craft. It's not worth doing half-assed IMO.
This should also be fun for both of us, so I would like to work with an easy-going personality who gets the music business and doesn't take themselves too seriously. I love to laugh and have fun while making music. We should champion each other so the ability to be kind to your fellow performer is a big deal to me. No sexists nor misogynists need apply. I'm looking for an equal or better for this project, will treat you well, and expect respect in return.
