All About Buford seeks one more male singer
- All About Buford seeks one more powerful guy singer. We need a
pro-level singer with stage presence and power. Someone with a strong
solo voice who can groove. All performances are paid. Great ear
required. Songwriting and arranging skills a plus; ability to play
other instruments also welcomed. Also interested in incorporating
pedals and effects. Songs are arranged collectively - you will not be
reading from written arrangements for the most part (think band
structure). All members get a chance to sing lead, but also will be
required to sing blended but creative backup parts. The music is
pop-oriented, with a little of whatever else moves us, so you must
have a pop voice and sensibility, and a hip look - we want a good
visual onstage as well as good music! Must be able to make a
commitment to some touring, and consistent gigging. Competent mic
technique and comfortable performance skills (movement, ability to
banter and joke) required.
We perform solely at listening rooms, festivals and concert halls of
prestige. We have strong relationships with many high-end venues, with
new performances being booked all the time. Booking is done both
internally and externally, but all management and business is mostly
done internally by the members of the band. New recording in the works.
Though this is not currently a full-time commitment, it may become so
at some point (or it may not). We are an award-winning vocal band
based in the Boston area, but we are a commuting band, so disparate
locations are ok. Rehearsals approximately once a week (when
geographically together), perhaps more during the initial phase.
Please contact amy@..., or 617.290.6749 with sound
clips, photo and bio/resume. If you'd like to mail recordings and
materials, please send to: Amy Malkoff, 182 Pleasant Street,
Marblehead, MA 01945. Any questions or concerns can also be sent to
the same address. We look forward to hearing from you and to a
creative, fun, and innovative project!
