ABOUT

Part-time weekend musician/keyboardist (blues/rock/country piano, hammond-style organ and blues/country harp) looking to jam with other like-minded players, either just for fun or for the occasional outside gig. Mostly interested in blues, blues-based folk or garage-punk blues, preferably originals. Semi-retired and flexible. You can check out my work on Spotify from a previous band called Prometheus Clay.

I've included a few songs I recorded in my home studio. "Goin' Back With Him" and "Long John" are a couple of old 1940s prison spirituals that I arranged, and "Bootleg Bourbon" is an original (© 2020 Mark Augustine).
