I’m looking for a backing band to tour with behind my upcoming record as Coldair.
my past gigs include Primavera, SXSW, Eurosonic, POP Montreal, Canadian Music Week and many, many more, so you could be up for a lot of fun (in the sun).
some really nice American labels expressed interest in this album, however this is not something I can share on the Internet. we can totally talk about it over coffee though!
my next tour will be early next year (January/February) in Europe, followed by a US tour (April/May) and then summer festivals all over the place.
there’s money involved (usually decent), no pay-to-play bullshit.
looking for a drums/pads player and a bass/keys/guitar player. backing vocals are essential, so it’s a great asset if you’re skilled in that. some of the parts are pretty high.
it’s a professional thing and, frankly, not the easiest music to play. I’m looking for skilled people that enjoy a challenge and are capable of being fully committed to the project.
I don’t have a rehearsal space yet (moved to London recently) so if you have one – that’s a huge plus.
I’d say my new record is a weird mix of Xiu Xiu, James Blake, Justin Timberlake and death. however, I’ll let you judge it when you get in touch and I send it to you.
e-mail me if interested and I’ll send along some music! I’m based in London.
