Indie Rock / Folk band -- seeking supporting instruments

Hello!

WHO WE ARE:
- We are "Good Dancer" (Instagram: @good.dancer.band)
- A casual music duo in SE Portland looking to play some gigs and self-record some originals over the next year.
- We're a guitarist/vocalist & a drummer/keyboardist
- Indie rock / indie folk
- We've played together for several years off and on.
- We have a dozen+ originals hashed out. Our songs are relatively simple, musically. Good rhythms, interesting lyrics, balanced sound levels. We keep songs short and simple, not a ton of jamming.
- We're not classically trained but we have good ears and our live sets are well-received.
- We have a small practice space but we're interested in renting a bigger spot soon.


INFLUENCES / TASTE:
Modest Mouse, The National, Cotton Jones, Sylvan Esso, Alt-J, Alex G, Adrien Lenker, pop, hiphop, Kings of Leon, Valerie June, Weezer, Brand New, Dr. Dog, 80's bangers, Pink Floyd, Andrew Bird, Beach House, Bahamas, Alvvays, Youth Lagoon, Houndmouth, etc.


SAMPLES OF MUSIC:

WHAT WE'RE LOOKING FOR:
- Any of the following: ** Bass, violin, keyboard, horns, lead guitar, cello, multi-instrumentalists, etc. **

- We need 1 to 2 supporting instruments to add some texture, depth, and atmosphere to our songs. We once had a violinist who played melodies and harmonies, and we miss the extra sound.
- Someone who likes to come up with interesting or pleasant melodies / harmonies / hooks / soundscapes
- Someone who is ok with being more of a supporting role, sometimes keeping it simple, possibly sitting out of certain songs or sections... but adding interesting solos / melodies
- Someone who generally likes our music and is serious about being in a band... but also laid back.
- Can practice once a week


HOW TO APPLY:
Respond to this ad or DM @good.dancer.band! Send us a link to some of your work (videos, social, Soundcloud, Spotify, etc.). And give us a little bio and what you're looking for musically.
