ABOUT

This is a ALL ORIGINAL MATERIAL BLUES/ROCK PROJECT. I woodshedded for three years writing over 200 songs and I'm looking for ANOTHER LEAD, FIDDLE, BLUES ARTIST, HARMONICA player that knows the genre. The songs are what I call POWERBLUES, not because the volume needs to blow the eyebrows off the audience, but because most of my songs are written with a three-piece in mind, with a greater emphasis on DYNAMICS. What I don't want is some players that thinks they can split his/her time between 3-4 bands and expects miracles. THEY ARE SELF-DECEIVED BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T LEARNED THE FIRST RULE OF SUCCESS IN THIS BUSINESS. I've been in this buisiness a very long time and I'm a perfectionist when it comes to rehearsal, the studio and the stage. IF YOU'RE NOT READY TO PAY SOME DUES AND SHED SOME SWEAT, THIS IS NOT THE PROJECT FOR YOU. My work ethic is this: DO IT UNTIL ITS TIGHT AND RIGHT. AND WHATEVER THAT TAKES IS WHAT IT TAKES. I'm looking for someone who is ready to step into the next level, can leave his ego at the door, and display some patience, loyalty and determination; in otherwords, some professionalism. I know the business end of the music business, I can get representation and sponsorship with the right material, so I'm not just talking out my ass about taking this to the next level. If you feel you are right for this band call me at: 702-917-2112
