ABOUT

PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS WRITE-UP!
Silver hair face pictures are of me now, taken 24th March 2018

I'm looking for musicians or a backing band. My project would be better for having another female singer who ALSO plays an instrument! I'll keep looking for her.

PERSONALITY A HUGE PLUS FOR MY REQUISITES.

Sadly, I have to say I'm very disappointed with the standard and attitude of musician/singers. I also hate to say it, but the quality I've seen so far, was better in the UK! Our 'amateur' backroom boys, were amazing! So were the gals!

If you REALLY have earned a living from performing music for at least a few years, I would LOVE to hear from YOU!

I particularly seek other female musicians, bassist and especially a Jerry Lee type pianist. Male musicians perhaps, as long as no jealous wife or girlfriend is following him around! That's a deal breaker!

I have another 12 songs you can hear, if you contact me to ask. When I'm not musiking, I write. I am a published novelist.

If you have what it takes, love Rockabilly,Country/Blues and are of the older school era, between 56 - 70, give or take a few years each side; Write me; donnideville@use.startmail.com Give as much info as you can please, and I will get back to you.

I also have two other songs here in Bandmix.

Influences

One of the pictures is of me with top UK band Matchbox who made a hit of 'Rockabilly Rebel' for weeks in the charts. Pic was taken as their hit took off. https://youtu.be/hO3sHO8ZuIc to listen to that song.

My manager back then was also the same one as the famous band XTC , as we started off in the same club which the manager owned. "The Affair.' I was the resident 'go-go' dancer there, for 4 years.

I like real rocking music:
Mitch Ryder. George Thorogood. Bonny Raitt. Dana Gillespie. Elmore James. Rocking Sidney. Buddy Holly. Chris Issak. Lazy Lester. Stones. Fabulous Thunderbirds. Jerry Lee Lewis. Fats Domino. Jerry Lee. Little Richard. Mighty Joe Young. KoKo Taylor. Creedance Clearwater. Muddy Waters. Contemporary country with some modern.

I like to sing the songs of all these amazing artists. Men and women songs. I sing best in the keys of; Roy Orbison and Johnny Cash, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, etc., and most other keys when needed.

I'm very confident and my love of performing is obvious to all. Earned a good living constantly for 20 years plus in the business.
