My name is Jack Wilson and I'm a pedal steel guitarist and multi-instrumentalist living in Ventura, California.

My b-a-n-d-c-a-m-p site: dOGbLACKbIG

I am primarily into writing original music; if I ever play a cover song, its because I'm able to throw a unique spin on it. I'm strong with lyrics and melody; I enjoy co-writing and can arrange both vocals and music.
I currently play a new Carter 12 string pedal steel in a non-traditional way.

If you're looking for somebody who can play, sing (lead and harmony) and
write fun, hooky songs, as well as play several instruments, then you've found it.

I'm looking to do those things with a group of professional, dedicated folks, and have a lot of fun following where it leads us. I really want to work with people who can sing as well as play well. Guitar phenoms are a dime-a-dozen. Good singers (especially harmony singers) are rare.
I don't care much for the bar music grind (BTDT) I'd rather play a showcase or open mic for 3-4 people that dig our stuff rather than 200 drunks somewhere.
I'm in it for the love; the vibe. The other stuff will follow if we're true to what we're doing.
Lets do something great!
I've got a project studio and enough knowledge to produce a decent product as well.
