My boyfriend and I are currently in our final year at University and will be graduating in June. I am doing a music degree and am a singer, my boyfriend plays very good guitar and we have set up a duo called Taylor Made (www.taylormadeduo.co.uk - check out the samples) and are hoping to work for a bit on a ship. We have been playing together for about 5 years (family weddings and local concerts etc) but have only recently given ourselves a name and have recorded a CD and bought PA equipment. We have sent out some letters a few weeks ago in York where we live to try and get some paid gigs but haven't heard anything yet.
I'm really just looking for some advice on the best time to apply, which lines and what to include in the application and CV I'm new to this so would appreciate as much advice as possible - everyone has to start somewhere!
