Solange seeks emerging talent for new backing band

  • Words: Spindle

Solange is seeking undiscovered musical artists from the New Orleans area to form her backing band. Last night a casting call went up on Saint Heron, recruiting guitarists, keyboardists, and back-up singers to accompany her. The singer-songwriter’s band have previously joined her on the stage of Coachella, and this new one could see themselves performing with her at Primavera next year. Solange has previously supported emerging talent, recruiting upcoming singers to feature on her album ‘A Seat at the Table.’

“Calling all musicians in New Orleans and the surrounding areas!” reads the casting call, “We’re in search of vocalists, guitarists, and keyboardists between the ages of 18-35 for our very own, Solange. Right here in New Orleans, we’re holding auditions for talented instrumentalists and singers to become part of the musical team that helps Solo bring the magic to her fans.” Submissions are being accepted in the form of 3-minute videos, and auditions will be held in New Orleans for those who are selected from the initial applications.
