Cameras, Guns, & Radios (CG&R) hails from Augusta, GA and is made up of 3 guys compelled to write and play great rock music. CG&R is a hardworking band and strives to provide a great show in any environment from a mellow acoustic Art Studio to a full blown rock and roll blowout complete with Marshalls and Mesas. From Sky City in their hometown Augusta to Nashville, Savannah, Athens, Asheville, Chapel Hill, and on the band is taking its sound across the Southeast. The influences of each member are slightly different, but combine to make energetic rock and roll with a solid hook and big groove reminiscent of 90's rock.

Bruce Skinner sings and plays guitar. Bruce's style is a mixture of southern rock, punk, and 90's rock.

Josh Taylor plays bass. Josh's active, smart and musical bass lines provide counterpoint to the melodies and anchor the band's groove.

Mark Janousek is the drummer. Mark's powerful drumming is the supercharged engine driving the band with a big toe-tapping back beat.

CG&R currently has two EP's (available on iTunes and Amazon): Jump In, and Wartorn and Windswept and a brand new LP In My Life featuring remastered tracks from the first two EP's along with six brand new songs.
