06-04-11 – Portland, OR>Seattle, WA – Hello Craigslist! Two part post, so keep reading!
I am a recording artist/producer, and I have a couple projects in the works that need some female vocals on them. Both are duets, each one has a unique feel so I’m not sure if the same voice will work for both, but possibly. So I need to find a female vocalist to record.
Of course, being a starving artists, I can’t pay, but what I can do is record and produce one or two of your tracks (could even play some additional instruments if you’d like) in exchange for your doing some vocal takes for my projects. This could be a great way for a singer/songwriter to get some nice quality recordings to put online or on a CD or something, and for both of us to build our fan base through collaboration.
As for the type of vocals I’m looking for, I’m open to possibilities. While I can appreciate precise, trained vocals, I also put a lot of value in the character and personality portrayed in a voice.
The first song, ‘Apart’ has kind of an indie-folk, sound-collage-y, very dark melancholic feel to it. Think a little bit like The XX – Islands, but less electronic.
The second Song, “Take Me Back”, has sort of pop-blues feel and is very uptempo, sort has a similar energy to that song ‘Home’ by Edwin Sharp if it turns out how I’m hoping it will, with a very back and forth banter between the male and female vocals.
Anyhow, if you’re interested, send me an email, and let me know a bit about yourself, and include links or samples of your work if you have any. If I think your voice would fit either of these songs, I will send you what I have so far of the tracks and, we can figure out a time to spend a day recording! If not, maybe in some project down the line Oh my studio is on a farm about half an hour from the city, but if you haven’t got wheels we could arrange a ride, I would really like to get these recorded ASAP!
Thanks for reading!
OH AND ALSO-
On of my music projects is looking for a dedicated female vocalist. This is a sort of Anti-folk’ish project that is a bit out there, with a bunch of fun, catchy songs that blend a lot of old-time and folk styles. We’d like to have everyone collaborate on songwriting as much as possible. For this project it’s definitely about character and personality over musical prowess. Would like to find someone who could do more than sing – but I mean that could be a lot of things – bongo/washboard/tamborine player? Fiddle? Bass? Puppet operator? Dedicated lights person? tap Dancer? I could keep rattling off things that would make this band more awesome… outfit designer? Typewriter percussion? Maybe a horn player? Choreographer?
It’s a really fun project, we meet every Tuesday in Kenton Park from 2-6, so it’s important you can make this at least most of the time if you’re interested. Other than that, we have fun in the recording studio when we can, play a show here or there, and busk now and then. We have some recordings we can send your way and we’ll let you know more about the band if you’re interested. We’re hoping to record and release something this Summer/Fall.
Ok, thanks for reading! Hope to hear from ya!
