House Above The Sun (HATS) are currently on the lookout for a new bass player for an existing singer/songwriter led project/band embarking on a new EP release and gigs. Lots of gigs played last few years including Merge Festival and London Folk and Roots Festival and good reviews for our debut album from the likes of Americana UK and Clash Magazine. Check our first album 'Five hours north' on Spotify and Bandcamp (these days we mostly play tracks 1, 3, 4 and 8 from that record). Lots of new songs since then including a new EP being mixed now, somewhat more acoustic driven and featuring lap steel and hammond.

Current line-up is 4 members: male and female vocals, guitar, drums and lap steel/dobro.

Currently rehearse 3-4 times per month in Pirates studio, Earlsfield (few stops from waterloo).

Influences are broad but mostly stem from 60s/70s American folk, blues and country singer-songwriters, classic guitar rock/pop and more contemporary Alt-country. Some examples are Dylan, Stones, Gram Parsons, Townes Van Zandt, Lucinda Williams, The Smiths, REM, Wilco, The Beatles, The Kinks, The Doors, Uncle Tupelo, Big Star, Son Volt, Gillian Welch, Bright Eyes,Tom Petty, Byrds Hank Williams, Fleetwood Mac, Neil Young, The Band, Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Springsteen, Emmylou Harris, Kurt Vile, War on Drugs, Nirvana, Sharon Van Etten.

The ideal person for us:
-shared love for rootsy/americana influences
-reliable, organised, positive attitude
-experienced player with good timing, ability to learn songs by ear and feel out the groove of the song and what the song needs (including keeping things simple when needed). Ideally a finger style player.
-Ideally similar age (late 20s-late 30s)
-Harmony backing vocals or any other instrumental skills desirable but not essential

If you like what you hear and you think you'd fit well then please get in touch soon and we'll send you more info. Please make sure to give us some info about your live and/or recording experience, your biggest musical influences, age and location. Please provide at least one link to your playing (even if its just a simple phone recording of you playing).
