Relocated New York guitarist looking to form 3 projects

I've just relocated from New York city to just over the border in county Derry. I've had numerous successful bands in the US located in NYC that toured the east coast regularly. I'm interested in putting together three projects all of which will record albums and tour - starting with Ireland, but extending to the UK, Europe and potentially the US.

Project 1:

Jazz. Bill Frisell meets '70's fusion and '60's psychedelia, but with a lot more emphasis on standards as well [Clifford Brown, Louis Armstrong, Miles Davis, etc.]. I would like a core of a quartet - myself, a pianist, bassist and drummer. For larger gigs adding horns and violin. I already have a basic setlist in mind and several originals nearing readiness.

Project 2:

Folk. This would encompass folk traditions of Ireland, UK and US. Bluegrass, finger picking, blues, etc. This will be a mixture of some 40 originals in this style along with a healthy dose of traditional tunes. I would like a core of upright bass, percussion/drums and a female vocalist. Would also love to augment with fiddle, banjo and mandolin. Keys are also a possibility.

Project 3:

I don't know the rock scene here at all. I play it all and would prefer something that tends toward R&B, groove, jam, etc., but I also write a lot of great guitar oriented indie rock. Musicians for this project would depend on what it becomes. Obviously bass and drums are crucial. I'd prefer a female singer. Beyond that? This project would be largely original. As I am a somewhat manic writer I can write a couple of sets in a matter of weeks - not to mention I have a backlog of about 100 songs that we could start with in a variety of styles.

About me:

24 year veteran of the NYC music scene. I've played it all and played on most small to mid-sized stages in the city. I'm also an engineer and used to own a professional studio. I still have all the gear and do all of my own engineering - so recording is never a problem. I have about 20 albums floating about the internet ether and countless hours of live Youtube video. My most recent and still active projects are The Sometime Boys and Wounded Buffalo Theory - though neither is exactly what I'm looking to start with these projects. I play with top end gear and have a variety of different guitars to achieve whatever tone I'm after. I've studied music (jazz and classical) and also have great ears for improvisation - which has become a specialty over the years.

I also just released a lullaby album for my daughter which is getting great press:

Please be a professional and please have links you can send me of your live performances or studio recordings. While the general direction of these projects would be based on my vision for each one, I am very open to collaborative writing [which will always be credited and properly apportioned for royalty purposes] and as I am new to the scene here and don't know the ropes, I invite any advice on strategy, venues, etc. from band mates. While I am in the north, I have a vehicle and am happy to travel for gigs and rehearsals.

Looking forward to finding people with which to make some great music here!
