ABOUT

I am finishing up an album recorded at Orbit One Recording Studios. It's an independent establishment owned and operated by Danny White. After hearing and recording a few of my songs Danny agreed to sponsor me for the recording of this album and fill in as my spokesperson or manager if you will. His partner in the Thoroughbred Horse industry is the former producer for Tina Turner, Cindy Lauper, Janice Joplin and Righteous Bros. My step dad is the former Monitor (sound) engineer for super bands like Poison, Cinderella, Aerosmith, B52's, Steppenwolf, ACDC, Shania Twain, Toby Keith, American Idol, American Gladiator and so much more. My advisors have suggested that i attempt to put together a band to promote these songs and play live. I need everything so if your experienced, like the songs, and always wanted a true shot at being in the industry. Everyone knows you have to have inside connectins to get a break in such a competitive markert. Well if you want to be in a group that has strong political pull in this industry, then give me call. The band in the recording of this album is the touring band for Justin Moore. He is an up and coming Nashville Star who currently has two song in the top 10 on country billboards. His songs are "Small Town USA" and "Back That Thang Up" Also featured on the recording of the album are hired guns Steve Richmond and Ray Sayler both whom play with the popular Exile band with JP Pennington and Les Taylor, and the Hale Brothers (members of Demo Kings). They are also members of the Kentucky Opry. Roger Coleman is Justin's Guitar Player and has assumed the role of assistant producer on this album. Other than being one of the best guitar players i have ever heard he also played a very important role in managing the recording process and arrangements for me in the studio. Since he will not being playing in my live band due to the availability he will not have once Justin Drops his album this fall. It is important to me that I have a guitar player with Rogers character, skill and ability. Each player chosen to play in this band will be in presence of some of the best musicians in this area. We don't have a budget to pay anyone at first but i have decided to let the players split the money on any paying gigs we do get and danny says he'll help out with finances if we play out of town or the gigs don't really pay anything. Please if you're serious and you like what you hear give me a call and lets get rolling. I have been very blessed to have such professional engineers (studio and Live) around me now I need a band destined for the charts and I really look forward to meeting you too!
