ABOUT

(Update: New songs are up on my YT, including some Jaskcons Browne, Foo Fighters, and a cover of The Cars "Just What I Needed," with a little Ray Wylie Hubbard thrown in for fun. I've also got an acoustic cover of Aimee Mann's "Wise Up" and a mashup big enough to have at LEAST one of your favorite songs in it. Search for me over there or on FB as "Reid Kerr" for examples of what I play/sound like. I'm also on Insta at "snowfire51" if you'd like to hear or message me there.)

Guitarist (and other stuff-ist) in Florence, KY looking for singer/instrumentalist to form a duo, do some acoustic gigs, play shows, have fun, become overnight sensations, sell merch, make millions, and then break up so we can go to rehab and then cash in on the inevitable reunion tour.

Or at least the first couple of things where we play some gigs and have fun.

I’m primarily a guitarist, but I can do some piano, bass, whatever the song needs. I also sing but, and I can’t stress this nearly enough, you need to sing way better than I do. That way I can just play and sing some harmonies and make you sound even better.

Set-wise, I have a fondness for 70’s-80’s-90’s rock, but I’ll play rock, pop, power pop, coffeehouse, country*, whatever gets us gigs. I want to play the stuff that strikes a chord with people, but also not the tired stuff that’s been beaten to death for decades.

For my style, I've got a YT channel (search for Reid Kerr) and you can see some of my favorite songs and mashups there. Feel free to like and subscribe and all that, especially if you’re playing in the area so I’ll know who to come see. I'm not currently on FB.

As you can hopefully tell from this posting, I take music seriously, but I play most things for laughs. The point is to have some fun, because if you’re not having fun, chances are no one who’s watching you is, either.

If you’re interested, drop me a line. If not, no hard feelings, hopefully I’ll see you around anyway.

* Classic country. Outlaw country. Willie and Waylon, Kris. Not the modern stuff from guys with two first names and shiny pants pockets.
