Happy Halloween from all of us at Music Gateway! Here is a selection of the week’s best projects:

Videographer wanted for stylish acoustic track

Singer-songwriter with acoustic track needs a music video. I visualise a video in one location, a room/studio with warmly lit close up shots of guitar and cello being played in a darkened room. A warm, subtle video for a sparse emotional song.

Producer seeking singer/songwriters to collaborate with

Producer with home studio/own gear/mobile recording rig seeking singer/songwriters for collaboration projects. Style-wise I work in the ball park of Pink Floyd, ColdPlay, Snow Patrol, Depeche Mode, REM, Peter Gabriel but having written several soundtracks am also influenced by ambient/alternative electronic styles – love to mix electronic with acoustic.

Singers and songwriter who are interested can find it here

Singer/Songwriter/Performer Auditioning passionate, creative musicians to form a band, write and rec

Drawing inspiration from a variety of artists including Arcade Fire, Pink Floyd, Nina Simone, Florence and the Machine, Band of Skulls, The Foals, Portishead, Floating Points and Massive Attack to name a few this project will continue to evolve and explore, pushing boundaries in music and each other combining acoustic and electronic to make mind-blowing tunes with positive, thought-provoking messages and universal appeal.
