I'm a harp player and I sing a little lead and harmony. I don't want to be the front man. Just looking for someone who already does a 1 or two piece set and wants to add a little something to accent what they already do. Currently playing on the week-ends with a band out of Meridian called "Highway 39." I'm not a perfect fit for everyone and vice versa. We'll try it out. If it doesn't work, no hard feelings either way. I just love to play and looking to find someone who shares that passion.
