Hello friends, fans, and random strangers. I'm looking for a singer to gig with!
Are you a singer in the Orange-County-California area, or know someone who is? I'm currently looking for a singer to accompany me, to provide backup vocals when I perform my original music (and some cover songs too) at various bars, cafes, backyard parties, etc in the orange county area.
As my backup singer you'll be singing backup vocals with me during live shows, and adding to the overall atmosphere by interacting with me and the audience between songs. You'll need to be willing to help promote shows with me, through the internet or occasionally handing out fliers. Rehearsals probably won't be too demanding, just a few here and there to keep on track, but for the most part I already have the backup parts recorded so you can practice to a CD on your own.
You'll also be added to my two main websites: www.MikePeralta.com and www.MySpace.com/mikeperaltamusic.
To be considered, you need to be at least 18 (hopefully 21), and theres no real upper age limit (if you're good). You'll need to be reliable, punctual, professional, have your own transportation, and be available for at least a few night-time gigs a month. I'd prefer someone drug free but a little booze/herbs are fine as long as you're not a total addict or whatever.
Also, if you haven't heard my music before, go to my websites and listen right now. If we're going to work together, you need to be a fan! I only want to work with someone who feels strongly about the music I play.
If this sounds like something you'd be interested in, send an email to NewSinger (at) MikePeralta (dot) com with your contact information and a short reason why you would be a good choice to work with. Be sure to also include a few good photos of yourself, and some samples of your singing (IE: mp3s, youtube, or anything else you have up on the web). From there I will be in touch shortly and we can possibly set up an in-person audition and talk.
Thanks for your time and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
PS: If you can play bass or keyboard, thats a plus!
