ABOUT

Vocalist/rhythm guitarist/writer rebuilding band, looking for bandmates (drums, bass, lead guitar, keys). Playing with the idea of adding a dedicated rhythm guitarist. Rock based but mixing in different genres in new, subtle and interesting ways. Hit me up at jaymez.d.strong at gee-mail dot com (spelled the normal way of course). Check out the samples in the player, and if you play any of the instruments mentioned drop me a line at the contact I sneakily provided above. Especially looking for players with strong backing vocals. Looking to resume gigging asap.

Got years of touring (a few cross countries and stints on Warped) as well as a few LPs under my belt. Currently have shows available and recently released our debut EP.
