adventures in dysthymia

Saturday, May 15, 2004

It's been a long time since I've done music as anything other than a single performer, playing my guitar and singing as a quasi-folk musician (the ubiquitous and much-dreaded singer-songwriter, I'm afraid). Once upon a time, I dabbled in the band scene, mostly as singer. Indeed, I sang long before I ever picked up a guitar and learned to play.

I've been wanting to get back into a group dynamic of some sort; if nothing else, it will free up the playing element. Lately, I've been jamming and sharing songs with a lady and we've decided to give performing a try. Some folk, some country, some soft pop -- an eclectic act that will go over well with the average crowd. Preferably, with a good bit of humor and plenty of opportunity for me to ham it up.

Now all we need -- besides lots of practice -- is a name!

I will still be on the lookout for other possibilities...bands, duos, folk-punk, alt-country, blues, whatever.
