Thanks for watching, I hope you enjoy my interpretation of Cobus' music. :-)
Here's my other YTBP Audition if you wanna see it:-
You can follow and keep updated on:-
Cobus Potgeiter is looking for musicians for his You Tube Band Project, so I downloaded one of his compositions and recorded my melody, lyrics and vocals onto his composition in order to submit the recording as an audition for vocalist in Cobus' new band.
This sound recording is simply a demo and is only roughly mixed 'naturally' in order to give Cobus a good idea of what my voice sounds like unprocessed, so there is only some slight delay and reverb added to the vocals for ambience.
I found out about this yesterday so only had one day to write, record and film myself singing the song, with the deadline being 31.7.12. Reason being, I am having work done to my house from tomorrow onwards and will not have a noise-free environment in which to record.
Even though I would have loved to spend more time on this, working it up and rehearsing it, I trust it will give Cobus enough information to know whether or not he may be interested in what I have to offer his band as a prospective vocalist.
I am a full-time teacher and part-time musician, who cannot give up the music as it is and always will be my first love. I've been vocalist and lyricists in several bands and projects over the years and have performed the live circuits in and around London, the West Midlands and the East Midlands in the UK both in bands and as a solo artist - both without roadies, so that's dedication for you. I have to admit being in a band is a lot less lonely and a LOT more FUN! So my aim is to be part of a working band again as soon as possible AND before not being able to do live performances gets me too depressed. As all of you musicians know, once you've been bitten by the bug, there's no going back!
