    I'm one of the guitarists in Leeds based (funnily enough!) band, Time to Leave, and we're currently on the look out for a new lead singer due to the recent departure of our previous and long serving front man.

    Our music can be heard at http://soundcloud.com/timetoleave, so if you like what you hear and fancy having a crack at trying out for us then drop me a message on here, or email the band at timetoleave@hotmail.co.uk.

    Thanks,
    Rob

    Ey up.

    We're called The Franceens (www.facebook.co.uk/TheFranceens) and we need a drummer as we've just lost ours because of commitment issues. Got a load of stuff in the pipeline, including links with management labels, minor record label interest, and a booking agent who secures us great gigs, and who is also looking to arrange a tour for us next year.

    Style is garage punk. No covers. Sounds like The Hives, Night Marchers, Joy Division, Buzzcocks etc etc.

    Full set of tried-and-tested songs ready to learn, and way more on the way from my brain.

    Get in touch if you're any good at playing drums. Own gear is not essential as we have access to drum kits, and we also have our own van, so transport is not a problem either. However, only get in touch if you're serious about making a band work. Our last drummer used to cancel gigs the night before etc etc, so we don't want that again.

    Cheers n'that.

    Hey,
    Is anyone interested in playing drums or keyboards in a 3 piece instrumental prog band?
    I've written a brief sketch which can be listened to here:

    https://soundcloud.com/theo-harding/prog-demo

    I've played the guitar on this demo but have programmed the keyboard and drum parts.

    I've played in a couple of metal bands in Leeds previously and fancy doing something a bit different.

    Here are some bands I've previously played in:

    Antares - http://holyroarrecords.com/album.php?id=139
    Cyvoid - https://soundcloud.com/cyvoid

    Chronicles of Adam West (a long long long time ago) - http://holyroarrecords.com/album.php?id=139#/coaw

    If you're interested (or know anyone who is interested) then feel free to drop me a message.
    If anyone wants a guitarist then get in touch with me anyway as I'm not currently doing any music.

    E-mail me at: theo.harding7@gmail.com

    Thanks

    Re: Looking for a Female Vocalist

    I am a songwriter and am currently working on a project for a publisher in Europe. I have 3 (maybe more) tracks that I need to layer some female vocals on top. The lyrics are Amy Winehouse/Duffy in style and the music up tempo and bouncy. They are for a girl band being launched in the Summer in the US. These are rough demos but the voice required needs to have soul and a bit of grit/personality. All applicants must be able to sing harmonies as they will be doing the backing singers parts also.

    I only have until mid March to get these tracks recorded and sent back so . . . . . . interested?

    Hi. My band Fighting Caravans are looking for one more member to complete our line-up and add an extra dimension where necessary.

    Unfortunately, our most recent guitarist has quit the band as he couldn't commit to 2 rehearsals per week. Although, i believe this is very reasonable...eitherway, i would describe our sound as Americana - post punk and we currently have a line-up of vox, lead guitar, bass & drums. I sometimes fill in with some rhythm but as a band we recognise the importance of such a member.

    Ideally this member would be:
    - 18-30 years old.
    - Play Guitar or Keys to a good standard.
    - Have live experience.
    - Be reliable.
    - Based within reasonable travelling distance to Leeds.

    If would be amazing if they had any of these additional attributes:
    - Play more than 1 instrument.
    - Have experience with Synth's.
    - Is proficient with Recording Software & Arranging.
    - Have own transport.


    Here's a link to a recent recorded rehearsal:

    If you are interested or know someone who is then feel free to DM me or email me at info@thecrowknowsmusic.com

    Hi!

    Sorry if this is hijacking your post but I've just registered and finding my way around! I'm looking for a guitarist to volunteer with my youth group. They're a heavy metal rock band, all have learning difficulties and write and compose their own music. Would anybody be interested in taking on this role please? I can provide detailed specification of the role.

    Thanks
