I run a 6 piece folk rock band in Bristol, The Fridge Mechanics. The band showcases my songs and we are looking for a harmony/lead female singer. I write songs in the Paul Simon, Richard Thompson style, which are wide open to harmonies and plenty of the songs have the opportunity for solo verses.
If you have any keyboard skills, that would be welcome. We have an excellent Nord stage piano.
We are a friendly bunch of quite seasoned and experienced musicians. All of us work and/or have families, so we are not aiming at the stars! We usually do 7 or 8 gigs a year, usually festivals and clubs. We had quite a lot lined up for this year which got cancelled due to the virus, but most of them will happen in 2021, which we are looking forward to.
When we are able, we rehearse twice monthly, usually on a Friday evening, sometimes Sunday afternoons. If there are new songs to learn and create harmonies for, we arrange extra sessions when we can.
With all the restrictions for gigs and rehearsals this is a strange time to be looking for new band members, but our harmony singer has had to withdraw due to changes in circumstances, so we would like to bring someone new into the band before we start gigging again in 2021. A good opportunity to do this?
If you think you might be interested, maybe have a listen to our songs; www.barry-lane-songwriter.org.uk. It's important you really like them and feel a connection with the music.
Do you have a recording of yourself singing at all?
