Diving Back into The Lake District....

A personal musical project, birthed in London, 2004...
A vision that came to me, long before my 4-track smoked and blew while there, regarding what Life in England was about; Inspired by the metaphor alluding to The Cure / Robert Smith's purpose/ intention: Of his disappearance into (& time / experience spent in) The Lake District, UK, during the early 80's.

The Lake District has thus far primarily been that of an Art band project, of various sentimental & wonderful Collabs over the years :) ... For a long while, it was highly inspired by the sounds of The Cocteau Twins and other magical sounds of the 4-AD-variety. Yet also possesses fresh shameless abandon to cover the ridiculous, on occasion, no less ;)...

So while I consider myself an Artist, I am infinitely moved, and called, by music in life equally to that of a Musician. Am ready to fulfill role of musician. And with that being said, I am super open to both The Lake District, as well as other local promising collaborations of high resonance, to flow and bloom and evolve in as many of the very best ways in direction as possible...

And while I may be pretty insanely particular about music personally, (like most) & am still growing in finding many sounds that really jive enough to explore:
Should I be blessed to find music maker material which I'm really moved by and really love and resonate with & Am interested in on Bandmix,
I would indeed want & very much desire to explore being a part <3....

Because music is timeless and the opportunity is priceless...
Contributing to something resonant for me: I would be sincerely honoured to be your backup vocals, supplemental synths, supplemental percussives, and/or tambourine! Case in point: If you are seeking others to create something spectacular, It would mean the world to me---I would truly love to participate and contribute : ).

Sincerely,
<3 E.
