ABOUT

Hello, I am looking to put together a small country band/ combo to begin playing out. Primary focus will be around originals, but we will delve into a good amount of covers to give availability for longer sets. Looking for lead guitar, fiddle/mando, bass and drums. I am open to the right keyboard player as well.

About me:
I am in my 40s. I’ve been singing, playing and writing for 30 years (or so). I am competent on guitar, bass, keys and drums. I’ve written and collaborated on over 100 songs in various projects over the years. In 2020 I wrote, recorded, produced and released my first solo album. I’ve already been through, figured out and gotten over the destructive lifestyle portion of my life, so I’m not interested in revisiting that ???? (I’m not interested in dealing with crippling vices, so please have that figured out as well)

About you:
Ideal players will be more concerned with creating the right sound than trying to see how many notes they can cram into a single measure. I would love nothing more than having a group full of folks that can identify and sing harmonies.

Rhythm Guitar: Thats me.
Lead guitar: Please be tasteful. I value melodic leads over flashy 10 times out of 10.
Bass: please don’t have aspirations of being the lead guitarist. Understand and value the relationship between bass and the drums.
Drums: please value simplicity, consistency and be comfortable playing with a click/ metronome.
Fiddle: I’m jealous of you
Keyboard: You’ll probably be playing a lot of organ.

If you’re still reading and this peaks your interest, please message me and we’ll talk.
