Hi I am a singer saxophonist in a funk soul and disco band.Now 28 and a mother of 2 i would like to take a back seat and seriously write with the intention of pitching my music to other artists.Maybe get a few publishing deals as a songwriter. I can't produce for toffee, this is a new venture really i need a co writing producer partner for music so i can focus on melody and lyrics.
Waves,Wavelab,Audacity,Cubase other software available.( i just haven't dabbled)
Soft core plugins
At the moment have been listening to a lot of Reggaeton and dancehall as i love syncopated rhythms i like to write to them as you get to explore rhymes within rhymes in a line etc. Things i am always listening to include,Skindred,Pearl Jam,Soundgarden,Hendrix,Zeppelin,Bowie,Sublime, Rage against the mahcine,Stevie Wonder, Jackson 5.( i have an eclectic taste)
Dark side of the moon,
Blood Sugar Sex Magik,
Best of Madness, Motown, Stevie Wonder, Bowie.
King Prawn got the thirst,
My influences aren't all that down with the kids, though i have been having a stab at writing some catchy tunes as the charts seem to be very sex driven at the moment. My personal songs that i play at jam nights tend to be quite folksy/indie and have conscious lyrics. Vocally i love Stevie Wonder, Aretha Franklin,The Noisettes,Emili Sande Amy Winehouse,Jessie J,Paloma Faith.Ella Eyre.
wouldn't like to judge it haha but i am going for the bringing soul back into pop vibe like Paloma Faith, Meghan Trainor, Amy Winehouse,Duffy
As well as "dutty'er" tracks to keep up with the new age twerks!
Am a teaching assistant.
