seeking one male and one female singer
- Nationally-known pop vocal band All About Buford seeks one male and one
female singer. We need pro-level singers 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)
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 currently
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 a...@..., 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!
