Musician Seeking Band
Location: Melbourne
Address: Thornbury
Posted: 6 years ago

I am a female songwriter who has recently relocated from Perth and am wanting to create a new sweet and classy line-up for gigging and touring. Genres might be described as any of the following: jazz/folk, alt/country and indi folk/pop.
I'm looking for any of the following instrumentation: Acoustic or electric lead/rhythm guitar, double bass, keys, trumpet, banjo, cello, drums and percussion, AND Backing vocals!!

Basically I'm pretty open to any combo that works. It's more important that we click creatively. I am after musicians who have a fun but professional outlook and a high level of improv and performance skills/experience. Enthusiasm for being involved in the arranging and production side would be a big plus too.

In the past I have been a full-time independent touring artist,. I've released 2 albums that have had some Triple J and community radio play. I'm currently playing folk festivals and bars/venues in Vic/WA. I'm now studying so the band project is more of a part time commitment. I'm looking to gig regularly with the band around Melbs and do occasional weekend regional tours. Pay may be irregular at first but should build over time. Check out my music at www.freyahanly.com
