Singer and Keyboard player wanted to join myself (guitar player) and a drummer in starting up a new project. There is no set list in place at the moment as we are starting from scratch but it will likely consist of tunes carefully selected from the last 60 years of pop and rock songs that require keyboards.

Hi, I am a local songwriter / musician. Looking for a good vocalist to add vox to my songs, I sing but my voice is nowhere near good enough to do them justice. Music is a mix of rock, pop, prog, acoustic, etc. sort of cross between 10cc , Queen, etc. Not trendy genres, but I reckon there's potential. Demos recorded in home studio, so it would be easy to add vox, most other instruments are already there, I play keys and guitar. Interesting mini project / sideline? No band so no other commitment needed unless it is wildly successful!
