Shelly Phelps


Lead Guitar.


Looking for lead guitar player (preferably who can sing harmony - but not a deal-breaker) for female-fronted (mostly original) rock band with blues, soul, and jazz influences.

Gigs will be local, some travel, and recording. The focus will be on originals ... approx 80/20 split with covers. Songs are rootsy blues/rock and typically with a gritty, haunting, sultry blues/jazz element to them. From bluesy power ballads to foot-stomping soulful rock tunes.

I love to work with musicians who are mature, experienced, prepared, professional, creative, versatile, enthusiastic, open-minded, and willing to perpetuate a professional image through a visually and musically remarkable stage show. The musicians for this project should be reasonably available for rehearsals, recording, and performances. There will be some travel and touring, but not extensively unless we collectively make that decision. Must have transportation and professional equipment.

If interested, message me here on Bandmix or find me on social media ... I’m easy to find. Let me know a little about yourself, your style, your influences, availability … and if possible, where I can listen to some of your music.
