ÜBER

Hi there, my name's Tom, I'm a guitarist / composer from the UK. My last band has just split up, so I’m looking for a singer at the moment to try and put something else together, and to get back to writing and gigging music. You can find links to stuff I’ve done below:

Proxy Youth (my most recent band – original grunge/rock music)
https://soundcloud.com/proxyyouth

Fugue State (acoustic gypsy jazz covers)
https://soundcloud.com/fuguestatemusic

The Jazz Clams (instrumental jazz standards)
https://soundcloud.com/jazz-clams

Space Gong (experimental jazz group)
https://soundcloud.com/space-gong

Room Full of Owls (folk / alternative)
https://soundcloud.com/roomfullofowls

Sods Law (rock / alternative)
https://soundcloud.com/sodslaw-2

My own compositions / other collaborations

I guess I've got a lot of gig experience. In addition to the bands listed above, between 2015-2016 I played 3 nights a week, every week with a band called The Lianne Rivers Band, around various venues in the UK.

I also spent 5 years studying music at Newcastle University, where I got my Bachelor and Masters in composition.
The kind of music I would like to make is pretty theory-based. I'm very interested in unusual scales and chord progressions, and would like to figure out how to write catchy, popular songs with these. You can hear one of my attempts at this with a tune called "Carnivalesque", which you can listen to here. This uses a strange mode (1 b2 b3 #4 5 6 b7).

It would be great to find a singer who ideally knows some music theory, or has studied jazz. I'm aiming to write music that is unique but also conveys some kind of political sentiment...

Anyway, get in touch if you have any queries!

PS: Ich kann auch ein bisschen auf Deutsch sprechen/schreiben, wenn kein Englisch möglich ist. ;)
