Solange’s long-awaited album A Seat at the Table was recorded in laid-back jam sessions with unusual instruments and a focus on collaboration. The soul star basically created various communes of creative people to help bring her vision to life. Now, Solange has placed an open call for New Orleans-based musicians to “bring the magic to her fans.”
Solange posted the notice on the site for Saint Heron, a project under her Saint Records label.
“Calling all musicians in New Orleans and the surrounding areas!” reads the post. “We’re in search of vocalists, guitarists and keyboardists… 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. Details for in-person auditions will be disclosed to those who are selected from the initial submission process.”
Could this mean a tour is on the way? The singer-songwriter said the scale of her concerts would depend on her son’s basketball schedule. In any case, local musicians would be remiss not to toss their hat into the ring for this gig.
