Hey! it's an ad for Ely James of Ely James and the Backtrakkers, original recording artist and musician heard on I-Heart Radio and Spotify and elsewhere! (s://moderndrummer/livemarket/join-elys-power-rock-n-blues trio ).
Listen, Ely's looking to complete a Power Rock-n-Blues Trio with the addition of two guys: a SERIOUS drummer and a bassist, preferably for LONG-TERM engagement, recording, gigging, and poised to tour abroad. In addition to Music-editing/enhancement engineers and top-industry session musicians already obtained a variety of studio players are being added to session-work rolodex in the event that bandmembers are otherwise unavailable for studio session work).
EJATB Rock-n-Blues music is distributed world-wide, played on popular Internet Radio, and, as an ASCAP artist Ely'd like to make his success continuum based on talent and hard work a success structure for you! Serious as brain surgery, he jokes, and with 12+ LPs worth of ORIGINAL MUSIC, some of which are in distribution and on the market (with Covers option upon venue demand) you'll be instrumental as a vital conduit for the ongoing creative fluidity as an Ely James and the Backtrakkers Bassist and Drummer (a harmonica guy and/or saxophonist maybe later). Auditions - digital and/or on premises - are being conducted and upon contact more information will be given, either to prospective musician and/or his management team containing artist bio and portfolio. So if interested get your files together (video sniplets and FULL AUDIO UNINTERRUPTED segments demonstrating your talent and cred) and via email or studio-sent hard copy draft submit what you'd submit as .wav file format audio portfolio of a sort to a talent scout to Ely of Ely James Music Publishing Company (EJATB DBA) and Ely James.
Upon sampling the brand do you see yourself as a fit as an irreplaceable Backtrakker member? You gotta let Ely know!

Secrets out! the prolific Ely is in search of a talented and music-career oriented male bassist and a drummer. Backing vocals alright but ain't required. While the emphasis and firm determination is to Trio-launch EJATB aboard in accordance with how EJATB music's been conceptualised and formatted, an option down the line could be to add a harmonica and/or baritone saxophonist (especially if this possible fourth auditionee and EJATB candidate is a keyboardist too). Considering the arrangement form of EJATB music backing vocals are optional and aren't required.
