Looking for musicians

As you could have probably guessed from our last post, The Lift Up is currently looking for a bass player.  From Joe Castro:

“We’re looking for a bass guitarist who’s open minded, easy to work with, sense of humor, thick skinned, etc. etc.  My goal is to change things up a bit with the next batch of songs, and hopefully broaden our sound a bit. As a sign-post, I would say I love the bass playing of Andy Rourke, Mani, Dee Dee Ramone, Paul Simonon, Mike Watt, Geezer Bulter, Donald “Duck” Dunn (to name a few) .  An appreciation for the songwriting of Tom Waits, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen, Joe Strummer, The Ramones, Morrissey, 50s rock-n-roll, 60’s garage, 70’s punk, 80’s new wave are all obvious pluses.  Well read, educated, artist-types a plus.  Ability to sing backup vocals or write music also valuable.

Currently, we’re based out of the Philadelphia suburbs/north Wilmington, DE area.

And on that note, we’re also looking for some multi-instrumentalists.  Maybe someone to add piano or keyboards, second guitar, percussion, whatever. If you like what you’ve heard from us so far, then hit us up at

Honestly, I really despise writing these things.  It’s impossible not to sound like a complete corndog.
