I'm looking for a keyboardist and/or guitarist to write songs with with a view forming a band. Ideally I'm looking for the kind of working relationship where you have a free hand with the music then I come up with the lyrics etc..
Influences: Nick Cave, Interpol, Arcade Fire, New Order, Maximo Park.
My aim is for us to be smart, entertaining and edgy and I'm looking for someone who doesn't take themselves too seriously and simply wants to write brilliant songs and ensure that both we and our audiences have a fantastic time.
I'm 23, London based and, as a solo singer-songwriter, have done a few gigs in London, along with one radio performance.
My solo gigs tend to be seen as unique, offbeat and enjoyable. I'm much more interested in entertaining people and displaying originality and ideas than attaining any standard of technical perfection.
Feel free to listen to my stuff at www.myspace.com/tradinginsults but bear in mind that I envisage the band as sounding very different...
