User Type Musician
Sex Female
Band/Artist Name Vashti
Description I currently write and perform songs as an acoustic solo artist but I am looking to branch out and either join a band or start a band. Currently my style is folk/indie, but I would like to explore other styles and genres. I am predominantly a vocalist, but I can also play guitar and keys, as well as clarinet. Although I accept that sometimes covers may be suitable for certain gigs, I would rather write and perform original music. I intend to have a career in the music industry in the future, as a performer and producer and I am very passionate about music. However, I do want to be able to have a laugh and have fun, music should be felt and experienced, not forced :)
Instruments Played
Influences As a solo artist, my influences are mainly other solo artists and musicians of a similar genre. I actually begain playing and singing because of my mum's inspiration. I have however been compared to Amy MacDonald, Alanis Morisette and KT Tunstall. Personally I don't know whether I sound like those but I can see where people are coming from, being that I'm a female singer/guitarist. However, I would like to focus on more upbeat music and different styles. Maybe Paramore-esque, or something a little more electronic and chilled like Alt-J. My favourite bands/artists are Canterbury, Imagine Dragons, Amanda Palmer and Alt-J, so if there's any way of incorporating any of their styles, I'd love to explore that!
