I am singer with 25 years of live and touring experience and want to do form a Country Rock Band. Yes I can play acoustic guitar to a reasonable standard but I would rather be out front rocking up the crowd and getting everybody off their feet. You cannot do that behind a guitar and I want to do the one job and concentrate on that.
What I’m looking for is like minded musicians who have a Good standard of musicianship - lead guitar, steel player, fiddle/banjo all with vocal ability would be great. Especially Female musicians as it would also be cool to share solos and then we can do duets like Lady A, Little Big Time and Band Perry etc
The most important part of this little project is having fun and playing a genre of music that is on the rise especially in the UK thanks to shows like Nashville etc and festivals like Country2Country.
The band needs to have a sense of fun, but commitment to practice and the ability to work together as a group is very important also for me personally everyone must have a say into how future gigs and sets are put together.
This could be a full stage show or something simple and organic I have some clever ideas for graphics and video which can be displayed on screens behind us a little some thing different from other cover bands ala brad paisley and his cartoon graphic ideas which were an inspiration to this whole thing.
So if you are up for some seriously country rock fun, drop me a line. We will also play a rodeo or too.
Country music is on the up and I don't mean me the stereotypical line dancing and Yee haaa it's gone in more of a modern route and if you look at artists like Jason aldean or Brantley Gilbert if take out the steel string or banjo and you could quite easily be listening to a gnr or ac/dc song.
I am looking for a good set of modern country plus a few classics and eventually a few originals. It would be great to start rehearsals as soon as possible with a view to putting on an opening gig at the end of summer, that will allow us to showcase some future gigs ,festivals, function organisers and promoters basically people who would like something new in their venues getting ready to take 2016 by storm.
This is a fun , professional project and a have a mate who can cut us a good rate on studios space so if there is anything else drop me a line. I started the idea last year and got quite a few persistent musicians contacting me but due to personal sh*te this has had to take a back seat until I was in the right head space.
Thanks for reading ya’ll Hope I will hear from yo soon.

Just come back from C2C 3 year running and saw the standard it's good but I believe with the right musicians we could do better. My influences are modern day country artists like Jason Aldean, Luke Young, Florida Georgia Line, Brad Paisley, Dirks Bently, Eric Church, Blake Shelton, Eli young band, Rodney Atkins, Brantley Gilbert and Chris Young.. The list is endless i basically only listen to country and rock these days so I am obssessed.
All the musicians need to have is good reliable gear...
