I sing in a choir and used to sing for several years in an acappella trio I started back in 1994 with people I met at a gospel singing workshop with Tony Backhouse. This group is now defunct, but my love of singing harmonies with like-minded people isn’t!
I’m interested in taking songs and re-rendering them (ie For the Right Time by the Hoodoo Gurus as a slow blues piece), but am also interested in folk, songs from the 40s and 50s, blues, jazz, even a bit of country. Anything from Powderfinger to David Gray.
I’d like to get together with some people who can hold a tune and harmonise to scat, improvise, jam – whatever – with a view to starting another acappella trio or even quartet, possibly with percussion thrown in.
PS If anyone has any ideas about how I can find some fellow singers who’d like to perform, please let me know. I’ve seen the ad for singers wanted, but I don’t necessarily want to sing in a band, and harmony singing is my great love!
