ABOUT

Bass Player that can sing harmony parts wanted!!

I'm looking for someone to sing close upper harmony with me on country and folk tunes in the style of singing on "Foreverly" (female or male).

I'd like to apply that approach to various country & folk tunes in the dark, story-telling tradition, especially some of the tunes that Johnny Cash covered and that are found on Foreverly and the Inside Llewyn Davis soundtrack. Putting together a band to record and play around the area.

Here's what I have in mind. Work out harmonies on the following tunes to start:

1) The Rake - an old blue grass tune. There is a mellow version by "Growling Old Men"
2) Hang Me - From Inside Lewynn Davis sound track
3) The L&N Don't Stop Here anymore.
4) Busted - A Cash cover, I do it in 4/4 instead of the original 3/4.
5) Long Black Veil - The classic dark story song
6) Thirteen - This is a Cash cover from American Recordings.
7) Wonderful World - My version of the Louis Armstrong tune.
8) Skipping Stone - A Mama Mac cover done in a country-ish style.

Check out: s:///sthurlock/sets/darkness-on-lantern-lane-060318 and s:///sthurlock/sets/start-here to my versions of these tunes. Send me an email at s dot hurlock at dot com

Instrumentation: Acoustic guitar, electric guitar - tube amp, bass - electric or acoustic, small drum kit. lead and harmony vocals in the style of the Everly Brothers and especially Bill Joe + Norah.
