I'm a professional musician looking to collaborate with someone for the followup to my debut EP that went viral on Reddit (200,000 listens overnight). I'm looking to change my sound some and move towards a more synth/electronica sound, but still staying square in catchy, dance indie pop. Think bands like Passion Pit, Capital Cities, Naked and Famous, Foster the People, Hellogoodbye, Two Door Cinema Club, etc.

Link to my last EP: ://politefiction.

I wrote and record all parts for my debut EP and have a professional home setup to produce my music in. Looking to collaborate with someone to take it to the next level and then potentially start doing some shows. Note that you DON'T need to be local to California for this, we'll get to that if it gets to that point. Again, you can be located anywhere as long as you can trade files and write with me in that fashion (dropbox or Gobbler).

Looking to do a 50/50 split on proceeds for the new album, where we'll both share songwriting duties. I'll do all the vocals unless you can also sing well and have a professional, quiet setup you can use for recording vocals. If you're local you can always come over and use mine.

If you reach out to me, please have several things you can point me to that you've composed! I am only interested in working with people who have a track record of doing catchy, up-beat pop which has a strong electronic/synth undertone to it, as this is where I want to take my music and what I enjoy doing the most. If you're a performer only, that's cool, but I wouldn't want to work with you - I need help songwriting!

If you're out of free contacts here you can always email me - tratledge at
