Default Wanted - Musicians for folk/rock band - Cork City

Hello, I am a songwriter from Cork City and I am looking to form a new band.

Currently, the type of songs I am writing are folky, see the link below for a home demo (band name is something from my favourite film, I am flexible on it):

http://breakingtunes.com/churchofthethirdrevelation

but I have written a broader range of stuff in the past, here (up until last year) I was composing and arranging the music only (the top two songs are an acoustic set we did on radio, scroll below for proper recordings):

https://soundcloud.com/emperorsofantarctica


But for now, I seem to be writing folky stuff. Initially, I would like to use rehearsal studios that provide a back line. But that's just my preference.

A band set-up I would ideally like would be drums, bass, 1-2 guitars and keys. If possible, I would also like a proper percussionist, but that might be fanciful thinking. I would also like one female voice somewhere in there. Finally, I would prefer if at least three members can sing. I can sing, so that's one down.

I'm not too picky about age, so long as you turn up to rehearsals, and not be constantly stoned/drunk. A while back I auditioned a guy, and he was great, we went for a smoke break and he came back stoned off his box and couldn't remember any of the songs. Well, I can laugh now...

So, if you are interested, let me know.

Loved Ashes. I hope you succeed. The only thing I play on is people's nerves. Good luck.

I really like your stuff man, too bad I am not in your area at the moment (I play keys and a sax). A forum is good to network, but you could also look for mates in the area maybe just by leaving some project-describing postcards in your area, with a clear info how one can get a hold of you (FB link to your band's page works perfectly). For our photo studio promotion we ordered a stack of our cards online with the details on the back and just had the office assistant take a half-day off leaving them in places where allowed. Within a few days we had some positive responses, so you should consider, because you're good, I'm sure someone will enjoy being that band!

I would be interested! A flute/sax/keys player. Give me a PM and I'll send you on my phone number
