I'm a blues-infused alt-folk singer-songwriter/guitarist/harmonica player, and my ideal band (for both recording & live) looks like this:

* cellist who isn't afraid to use fx to create atmosphere (think Nigel Kennedy meets Johnny Greenwood)
* lead guitarist who thrives on using fx to create atmosphere (think Reeves Gabrels meets Mark Knopfler)
* percussionist who is just as focused on texture as they are on meter (Think Stuart Copeland)
* one or two harmony singers (who can also step in for some lead vocals) (think Emmy Lou Harris meets Joy Williams)
* piano player with soul & creativity
* me (vocals, rhythm guitar, harmonica, fx)

If you fit the description of any of the above, get in touch. I have a long list of influences, but a few are: City and Colour, Damien Rice, The Civil Wars, Aimee Mann, Hayden, Keaton Henson, Radiohead, J.Geils Band, Junior Wells, James Cotton). I can send you a link to some of my songs if you like.

I look forward to hearing from you!
