MJ Burgess


Songwriter looking for musicians for a temporary project. I need at least a drummer and an electric guitarist for a rock band.

I am a writer/director and I am working on a ballet that will be set to rock music instead of classical music. This is something that hasn't been done in over 50 years. You are not required to be a ballet fan. If you don't like ballet, that's fine. I need musicians who love rock music. The pay is low because I applied for grants and I am working on a kickstarter campaign however we would work together on the weekends no more than 10 hours/week. That way it doesn't interfere with your job or other commitments.

The more funding we receive, the higher the pay will be. I started writing lyrics for the ballet but there is plenty of creative freedom in terms of the music. I will keep the copyright to the lyrics, the entire band owns the rights to the masters. Sales from CDs and downloads go to the band. We will record about 22 songs for the ballet soundtrack but only 10 will make it to the album that will be sold to the public. I found a music producer/engineer and a music promoter. I will pay for studio time. Once I get the band together, we will have a zoom meeting this month. So the work starts this month and the gig ends April 10, 2022 - which is the last day of the ballet performance.
