01-22-12 – Nashville, TN>Louisville, KY – Hey singers. The San Francisco based band Ambience is looking for a vocalist.
Our “World Rock” sound can be described as an upbeat rock band with worldly elements – brazilian, middle eastern and surf flavor.
Bands we love: Sigur Ros, Muse, Radiohead, Black Keys. . . add a little Ennio Morricone and you get a taste of what we go for.
Ambience has had a great run over the past few years. Radio exposure, west coast tours, festivals, and a wonderful Bay Area fan base have kept us going.
Our search comes down to this: We are looking for a musician to join us as a vocalist. Someone who is serious, passionate and above all, lives to sing. Playing a mean rhythm guitar is an extra bonus.
We have been spending the past year writing and developing new songs. If you are interested, please explore our website and check out the audition section for details.

09-14-11 – Portland, OR>Seattle, WA – Hi, we’re a recently formed band looking for a guitarist or a synth/piano player who can sing backup as a tenor or higher. Currently we are a 3 piece; bass, drums and singing guitarist. I’m currently writing all the material but am happy to work with you as a co-writer and combine forces if our styles mesh well.
These songs are more broody and wintry whereas the yet to be recorded new material we are working on is more upbeat dancey and summery. Think Beatles meets Pavement. As well as Jawbox meets Radiohead.
Other bands I respect and probably emulate a bit are; Bjork, St Vincent, The Notwist, Pinback, Blonde Redhead, The Dirty Projectors, Sigur Ros, Jeff Buckley, Tortoise, Animal Collective, Versus, My Bloody Valentine…
08-11-11 – Nashville, TN>Louisville, KY – I’m looking to put together a post rock group with influences like Explosions in the Sky, This Will Destroy You, Russian Circles, and Sigur Ros. I want the group to be pretty musically serious, even if the gigs aren’t very regular. I want to focus on writing original material, although we will probably work on a few covers to begin with just to get everyone comfortable with their parts.
Keys – The biggest thing here is getting someone with access to a keyboard capable of more soundscape-y patches and effects. The keyboard will be a central part of the band, but again, I don’t need someone with a lot of technical skill, just someone who can be creative and has the tools to do so.
Thanks for your time reading this! Send me an email through if you’re interested, and if I figure you’re not a bot, I’ll give you a call — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
08-05-11 – Nashville, TN>Louisville, KY – I have been doing a lot of writing for an upcoming recording project that I hope will take off. I just need a talented singer! My goal is to produce some awesome music with influences like U2, Muse, Paramore, The Killers, Sigur Ros, etc. Following the release of this music, ideally, we would piece together a band for performing the material. Thematically, the songs will be about ambition, pursuing dreams, lost love, and a little bit of God.
Specifically, I’m looking to find a male or female who is under 30. A marketable image would be a plus. No drugs. What I bring to the table is 10 years of recording/producing/mixing experience, 17 years of songwriting experience, and a list of contacts accumulated from having lived in Nashville, TN for close to 10 years.
If you’re interested in giving this a shot, please send me an email. If you have — Submit Yourself To This Role Now: 1
