ABOUT

Indie Artist Chad Yochum (Corner Kid) has just finished his debut album "Atlas, at Last!" and is moving from Atlanta to Athens to start a live band of professional and dedicated musicians.

Because of the diversity of the music and the many featured instruments (many of which appear sporadically), I am hoping to find multi-instrumentalists with a diverse taste in music. It is strongly preferred that you can sing and harmonize, have the ability to easily learn vocal and instrumental parts by ear. I'm looking for individuals that have a great attitude, style, stage presence, are trustworthy, passionate, work well with others, have a flexible schedule, and the desire to travel. My goal is to do well in the local scene, and then take it on the road, and overseas. Ultimately, I want to do this for a living. You could too.

Main Instruments (featured in most songs): Piano, Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar (Clean, Drive, Fuzz, Tremolo, Reverb, Delay, Ebow), Bass (Clean, Fuzz), Drums, Cello, Violin, Tambourine, Shakers

Supporting Instruments (only in certain songs): Trumpet, Harmonium, Bells, Ukulele, Trombone, Mandolin, Sampler (for triggering ambient FX)

Everything is currently being built from the ground up, so it may take some time to put the pieces together, until the band is finally ready to begin rehearsing. I'm still looking for a place to live, and I'm still in the process of getting the record mastered and pressed. During this time, I'm looking to make connections and see what options I have. I look forward to talking with you. - Chad
