Would suit someone looking to dip their toe in the water, a beginner or someone looking for a second band. We do covers of protest/political songs and will only be looking to do gigs to help/promote charitable organisations and maybe some group busking to raise money/awareness of same. Attitude more important than ability. We will consider most instruments but primarily vocals, guitar, banjo, violin, mandolin, percussion,

Description: Experienced Songwriter with own transport, own kit and home studio looking for a lead vocalist to bring some tunes to life. Songs are EDM/Dance Orientated, complimented by live guitar and backing vocals (that will be me). I've got a lot of gig experience as a lead singer, but would rather push buttons and stay in the background, whilst someone jumps around and engages with the audience. Happy to let someone add lyrics and embellish the songs. Here are a sample of them. Looking to get out and gig at some point. I already have a session drummer ready to join once the tunes are ready to go. Looking at 10 tracks for a live set, with a further 20 if needed in order to mix it up.

Description: I'm a 26 year old guitarist turned bassist who has been playing since I was 13. I am currently part of an Alt-Rock band in Surrey but have more than enough availability to commit myself to another group. My influences and playing style is currently in the area of Rock/Alternative but I'm open to the idea of playing most styles if the rest of the group are happy for me to adapt. I'm not picky as I just enjoy being part of a good sound, so am happy to play a supportive role to suit.

Description: I'm a 31 Y/O metal vocalist from the Tuxford/Retford area. Currently looking for an established heavy metal / metal core band, my vocals are flexible with a more Randy Bylthe sound. Previously lead vocalist of Omerta but due to personal reason I had to leave, the band will go very far though and still class them as brothers. Looking for a fresh start and new sounds.
