ABOUT

The music above is a track from my first CD and some loose recordings this last year I threw together in my home studio. The recordings above do not show all of my vocal abilities nor my guitar playing abilities to their fullest extent. In all of the recordings above all of the parts are me. Recording is fun, but I live to play live. My music is at http://www.myspace.com/matedwardsband.

I am a Front man; vocals and lead guitar. I am looking to do originals and blues blues/rock covers. I have a gravely voice and sould like a combination of Warren Hàyes and Joe Cocker. I have a CD out. My myspace is http://www.myspace.com/matedwardsband. I am looking for an established working band or a key player with B-3 settings, a bassist and a drummer. I want to play blues and blues rock with originals.

If you are interested in jamming please drop me a line. I am not adverse to helping a band out looking for a lead player/lead vocalist/frontman or to just play guitar or sing. NOTE: SERIOUS INQUIRES ONLY. I AM LOOKING TO GIG OUT AND NOT JUST PRACTICE IN THE BASEMENT.

EQUIPMENT

I play Fender gear. I have a couple of Fender amps and my main guitar is an American Standard Stratocaster "Ms. Ruby." She is over 20 years old and I bought her new. 1954 Guild X-50 dubbed "Black-eyed Susan" due to the finish. I play slide tuned in a modified open G. I have a few other acoustics I play on when I do coffee houses and acoustic shows. I am currently finding a back-up axe for Ruby. That E4 neck is a pain to find! I have a small PA and effect processors one picks up over the years...
