ASCAP-member Ely James here looking for you to join me! I stream my Original Rock-n-Blues Boogie music Worldwide and have added several sets worth of Cover/Songs as attractibles for bar, Lounge & smaller venues. My heart set on touring also on my 7 albums to date, Cover Tunes and 3 Singles, EJATB albums on which Session Drummer Steve Brewster and touring musician Nik Hughes of Bush have drummed. I have 30 years of experience and am setting out as a Guitarist and Vocalist who's seeking to get a Robust Power Trio out there. My name is officially changed as is my hometown (very soon to head West!) only the bandname stays the same: Ely James and the Backtrakkers (chekk out my website and -Tubey!).
Energetic stuff, up-tempo & with remorseless swagger! (1 of my favorite descriptions) and looking to really build on career investment and "catch on" out there! Bassist and Drummer candidates, hit me up if interested. If as serious as me & liking my/style I think you'll like where we can take this thing! In addition to seeking Bassist and Drummer I'm eventually bringing on a keyboard player, between us all to have at least 1 backing vocalists to support what I've got here, maybe to share lead vocal role some.
