So my friend Phil and I are now seniors in our high school and we basically run the the music program. (He's president of the Jazz Band and I'm president of the Choral Group) Anyway at our concerts which are held tri-annually, our [crazy] music director gives people a chance to do solo stuff. So my friend and I work well in collaboration, we're a 2 man group and we're working on an album, and basically what my question is to you is, we need good music to go out with a bang. We have three concerts: one in October, one in December (Christmas), and one in May.

So Phil plays guitar and drums and I play piano and sing. If needed, Phil could sing a little (backup or lead emo haha) and I can strum myself a little backup guitar, but basically we stick with our strengths. I'm probably more piano and he guitar, but both my singing and his drums are pretty good. Granted, while I can play piano and sing at the same time, he cannot play drums and guitar at the same time. So what we're looking for is music with drums or guitar (acoustic or electric) with piano and/or voice. Voice is not necessarily needed and piano is not necessarily needed (though preferred).

In the past we've done songs such as:

State of Grace - Liquid Tension Experiment
Falling Slowly - Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova (from the movie "Once")

And on our album we have covers like:

Fix You - Coldplay (where we double him into guitar and drums)
Under the Milky Way - The Church (a little unplugged)
Mad World - Gary Jules (a chilled remix with drums that was on the Donnie Darko soundtrack)
Brick - Ben Folds Five
Hallelujah - Jeff Buckley
Dearly Beloved - Kingdom Hearts (epic drum remix)

So you're thinking well, why can't you do any of those? Well, Fix You requires doubling, Under the Milky way has no piano (which I would like), Mad World would be rejected by our ultra-Christian school for its lyrics as well as Hallelujah (in fact I tried to do the John Cale version last year and they were like NO). We don't really view Brick and Dearly Beloved as stuff we'd play by themselves, they need to be more in the presence of other things.

So anyway, we're looking for similar things. Remember: guitar (acoustic or electric) or drums with piano and/or voice. (if you must choose one choose piano but I enjoy singing and I think we sound better when I sing, it gives us a better feeling, I think). Any help you guys could give would be greatly appreciated!

I should perhaps clarify. I'm a guy. (more of a baritone/bass but my upper range is sorta there and if necessary we can always transpose)

its just that guitar or drums with piano and/or voice that isn't directly anti-christian is pretty much 50% of all music ever! I don't hate this topic but this is a little bit like god's love (deep and wide (sing that song mayb???)). a little specificity would really help.

its also like ur weepy vagoo.
