ABOUT

We are an original based band looking for musicians. We are especially seeking out someone to play lead guitar or bass or both. Ability to sing harmony is also a major asset. Also, anyone who can play banjo, pedal steel, organ, etc. would be a welcome addition. Our style falls somewhere between roots rock, alt-country with a slight classic punk edge. Influences include Neil Young, Steve Earle, Wilco, Bruce Springsteen, Son Volt, Tom Petty, Social Distortion, The Replacements, and many others. Our major focus is quality songwriting but have a select list of covers as well that compliment our own songs. We have played some shows, but have been holding back a bit until we can complete our unit. We have placed in 2 seperate Battle of The Bands competitions last year, and have a few secured gigs down the road. A few of our songs can be heard at: http://www.myspace.com/blackstarjunction .
