We're looking for talented, intelligent and rammed-full-of-character guitarist to join our Cambridge collective, in the lead up to two summer gigs - one on the 7th July 2018 in Norwich, and one on the 21st July 2018 in Cambridge. You need to be experienced, able to improvise across different styles, love performing (you'll be on stage, not in a pit) and musically bold.
We Are Sound has been going since 2010 in various different formats, but throughout we've balanced a completely crazy mix of vocalists (somewhere between 40-120) and instrumentalists (somewhere between 5-20). The scale is vast and ambitious and not for the feint hearted. The gigs have full & pro sound/light production (apart from the occasional unplugged gigs which have a very different vibe) and pull in some brilliant names both in terms of collaborators and audience members (e.g. Basement Jaxx, Boo Hewerdine, Megson, Dirty Freud) and sponsors (Bobby Aitken and Autograph Sound).
Our set lists are really diverse so we're looking for a guitar that is 100% up for covering a broad range of styles. Bands we've covered to date include Dry the River, Arcade Fire, The National, Alabama Shakes, Goldfrapp, Ane Brun, Rufus Wainwright, The Leisure Society, Asgeir, Katzenjammer, Sigur Ros, Elbow, The Wilderness of Manitoba, Basement Jaxx and more. The two summer gigs have more of a electro-world vibe and cover Crystal Fighters, Baaba Maal, Morningsiders, Portugal. The Man, and more.
If the above sounds intriguing, please fill in the form at the bottom of this page and we'll get back to you pronto. The deadline for applications is May 18th and we'll be holding some fairly chilled but necessary auditions the following week.
