Looking to collaborate with preferably a female singer/ vocalist and other musicians for your and our original material and interesting covers (we have covered Linda Ronstadt, Rush, Seals & Crofts, Al Jolson, Emerson Lake & Palmer, and Pink Floyd.
Your influence and interpretation is welcome.

We have collaborated long distance via email and it's worked well, so if you're interested in trying something different like this we want to hear from you --- Let technology work for us!

Whether your influences range old to new, from Ella Fitzgerald to Ann Wilson to Carrie Underwood, talent is talent, so if you are willing to collaborate, please contact us.

If collaboration works out well we can discuss future possibilities. We think the less pressure there is at the start is a wise beginning.

We record in southeastern MA just minutes from Route 495.

Influences

Understanding instrumentalists' influences may be different than a singer's, and though we listen to a wide array of styles and eras, we wish to keep this list to what it's supposed to be - influences.

We're collectively rooted in classic rock, lean progressive, with a good dose of "Laurel Canyon" thrown in (L.A. acoustic rock). Rush, Bread, Who, America, ELP, Yes, Eagles, Led Zeppelin, Bad Company, Pink Floyd, Clapton, CSN&Y, Joni Mitchell, and Heart.
Jazz & big band, early rock'n roll (pre-British invasion).

Gigging - we're sponges. Aside from originals and covers (including 1990's artists) STP, Collective Soul, Pearl Jam and Live, we have also done mash-ups before they were popular . . . ask about Jim Bacchus Plateau.

We also like those that have influenced the people who have influenced us.

We received both commercial and college airplay in our previous band from our CD called 'Critical Distance' (a term used in the sound industry). The first airplay was from a station in Hollywood CA - KCLA, with a song whose namesake was the title of a short story by Madeleine D'Engle.
