The Show are looking for a new singer...

THE SHOW, AKA Steve Mac and Mutiny boys Rob Davey and Dylan Barnes, are looking for a singer to record a track on their album in progress, due to be released on Mac's label Variation later this year. 

"The Party", the first track recorded for the album and set for released on 15 March, is already a big player with the likes of Tong, Emerson, Lottie... But the boys are in need of new a vocalist to round things off.

"Basically, we're doing an album and we want a new vocalist to play with. Rob (Mutiny) is going to do some vocals and we've also got a great singer called Amrit singing on a few tracks (both Rob and Amrit did the vocals on 'The Party') . We're not going to stick to our house roots on the album, we want to take it the indie and hip-hop way too. Don't get me wrong, house music is my first love and I've been making it for nearly 15 years now - ten years under the Rhythm Masters name. But sometimes you need to experiment with other music to keep you on your toes. For the vocalist, anything goes really, as long as they can sing of course. We want to make this album fun, be a bit different and maybe discover someone new, who knows what we'll come out with... It will be good though."
- Steve Mac

All singers need to send demos to: FAO:- Mutiny/The Show, Studio 207, Biz Space, 99 - 103 Lomond Grove, London, SE5 7HN. Closing date:- March 31st. The best 20 will then be called for a live audition.
