An Originals Musical Project

A Fusion of Musical Styles

music is emotion

Wanted

Musicians – Songwriters – Composers – Original Music Ideas

Imagine being able to work on your idea with supportive musicians and hear it live as you envision it? … Welcome to Eclectic Essence.

Do you love most styles of music? Are you open to playing and blending multiple styles of music in perhaps unique, new ways?

Do you want to be part of a musical project where it is highly unlikely that someone says “NO” to a song or musical style?

Do you consider yourself an “old soul”, or have others said that about you? Are your favorite musical styles from years past?

Do you want to be free to play whatever comes naturally to you in an open, welcoming environment?

Eclectic Essence is a unique opportunity for the right people. This is not a band where we are pre-defined as a particular musical style. Our goal is to create and produce music with as few limits as possible. We might open with a swing jazz tune, and the next  composition might be very “country” – another might be folksy – while be play a couple of southern blues tunes in between – and finish out with something classical sounding.

Imagine a new Grateful Dead type of band, where perfected jamming, sharing of the spotlight, and more musical styles blended in take place. This is the vision.

Are you ready to join us on this musical adventure?

Requirements

Once a week practice commitment to get started. Eventually, twice a week practice. Generally, one practice would be dedicated to performance, and the other is geared more to composition, writing, and arrangement.

Lead sheets are provided most of the time so you can focus on creativity instead of figuring out which chord to go to next. But practice at home is expected to quicken the learning curve.

Basic improvisation is a required skill, but if you do not know how – it’s easy to learn. The more you do it, the easier it is.

Live Streaming

We are a live performance based musical project. Our foremost reach for fans is online performances and practices. Building the online audience is our first goal, while playing locally to develop a local following is secondary, but equally as important.

Musicians Needed

Guitars

Acoustic and electric, rhythm and lead, classical and smooth jazz styles would also be nice.

Bass

Electric, but a stand up base would be a very nice addition.

Drums

The ability to add drums as an “instrument” and not just to provide rhythm.

Percussion

Add that extra touch with tambourines, bells, chimes, etc..

Keyboards

Organ & synth … would even consider another piano that could also do organ when needed.

Vocals

The ability to sing multiple styles is a plus. Not afraid to try something new.

Horns & Woodwinds

Sax, trumpet, clarinet, any horn or woodwind, etc..

Strings

Violin and cello would be a big plus.

Something Unique?

Do you offer something unique and unusual?

BONUS

Many of the members of this project will be working on their own private online presence – building their own fan following privately, as individual musicians. It is the goal of the Eclectic Essence experience to aid and help each member who is working on those goals. Together, we can help each other achieve success, as well as accomplish something musically unique, corporately and personally, with Eclectic Essence.
