I am a male singer/songwriter/guitarist in my thirties living in the inner north looking for female singer/songwriter/guitarist to form acoustic country/folk duo.
Having recently seen Suzannah Espie and Charles Jenkins performing together, and having been very impressed by how well they work together, I have decided that a side project along similar lines might be something
worth pursuing.
The intention is to knock a few new songs into shape, select some choice covers, and start to gig ASAP.
This will be be a side project for me, and will most likely be for you, so not asking for thrice weekly rehearsal commitments here, just a willingness to give it a go. If it works good, if not, no harm done.
Points of reference include, but should not be limited to:
The Darling Downs
Gram and Emmylou
Fairport Convention
Gillian Welsh
Lucinda Williams
At a stretch Dylan/Baez
Etc.
I would expect that the right person has the ability to harmonise, have at least some stage experience, possesses a strong, expressive voice and can write songs. Intermediate guitar skills (both flat pick) and fingerstyle would be an advantage. Definitely wanting two guitars involved.
PM me or reply if you are interested in discussing this further, and I'll send you a link to some older stuff I have up to give you a rough idea of what I sound like.
I am not expecting perfection, just think the concept might be worth exploring. It is not about technical skills, but the ability to convey something honest.
The aim is to break some #%*+#% hearts, ideally. Think Teddy Thompsons rehersal version of Tonight Will Be Fine.
