Band to Join, Lead Guitar, Acoustic Guitar, Bass Guitar, Drums, Saxophone, Keyboard, Harmonica, Electronic Music.


Passionate singer, songwriter and harmonizer seeking band members and/or guitar player to form a duo for gigs with a blues, Americana, soul, rock, jam, funk mix. Looking to play gigs with original songs and restyled covers around Columbus and anywhere the music takes us. Also recording demos of my original songs for licensing (open to collaboration and/or just being the songwriter if you need originals). An optimistic realist, I love to laugh and avoid drama. You can check out my website shawnaray (dot) com, but I have evolved a lot since I released that first album of originals titled OPEN in 2010. Can also listen on ://./shawnaray, itunes or Amazon. I work from home or anywhere with WiFi weekdays as Communications Consultant and can help with booking, website content and social media. Free nights and weekends and will take days off as needed to travel. Email shawnaray (at) live (dot) com.
