Bit random this. .. but basically, we're changing quite a lot in our live set-up: Alex J Ward, one of our sax players, is pretty busy with his own projects at the moment - DEAD DAYS BEYOND HELP // ALEX WARD & THE DEAD ENDS - GO SEE THEM! - so whilst we'll have Christopher Cundy, our other sax player, still very much on board, we're trying to figure out how to fill the Alex-shaped gap..
We may end up not having anyone else extra at all, but one idea is having a female singer with us who can ideally play something else too - sax, a violin/viola, percussion - anything really, we can sort of work around it.
The main thing is just finding someone with a really distinctive, uninhibited voice who could add some harmonies / noises to some of our songs, and obviously, someone who is also able to be on tour a lot of this year.
So. . .if anyone out there thinks they might fit into the strange little sung-glove world of Guillemots, send an email to
with whatever you want to tell us about yourself and some link to listen or download some examples of your voice or voices...
