Introduction

I'm an aspiring singer looking for some advice and collaboration

Intro (Review the other questions first). (New:) What do you hope to get of the Circle? (New:) Do you hope to find a collaborator? If so, are you looking for a composer, a lyricist, a full songwriter, a song doctor, or a teacher?

I've written a little bit (mostly lyrics), folk-pop. I need help.

Do you sing? If so, whose would you compare your voice to? Or what genres or styles are your favorite to sing in, or artists to cover?

I'm learning acoustic guitar.

Are you currently in a band? If not, are you looking to join or found a band?

Yes, I've been compared to Jewel and Karen Carpenter, but who knows (haha).

Do you write your own music? If so, what genre(s) do you write in, and how many originals have you written so far?

No, but I am up for any sort of collaboration.

Do you play an instrument? If so, which instruments? Whose would you compare your playing to? Or what genres or styles are your favorite to play in, or artists to cover?

No answer yet

    No music, No life (Tokyo)

    Hey Rebecca, Thanks for joining No music, no life. I noticed that you are looking for support musicians. If you're free this weekend feel free to come out to the event I posted. One of the musicians performing, Nao Kawamura, is similar to you in that they are a solo act but perform with a support musicians. If you're there, I would be glad to introduce you to them. There is a keyboardist, drummer, bassist, and guitarist I believe.

    Hey again Rebecca! I haven't forgotten about the videos. I've just been unable to upload them anywhere from my house because my upload speed is just too slow. It is estimated at about 9 days to get them onto youtube! I think I will have to wait until I get home to the UK at the end of the month or maybe go to an internet cafe before I can do anything with them..

    Hey Rebecca, not a problem! It was a real pleasure and I'm looking forward to doing it again. I will upload the pictures in the next couple of days as I'm currently on a short trip to Malaysia and do not have access to fast Internet right now :/ there are some really cool clips though!
