The Wandering Minds were comprised of Jake Dandridge and Josh Strickland, who collaborated for 15+ years on many styles of music. Throughout those years, they met many musicians that enhanced their sound and even joined them for short adventures and projects. Some of the people that are included in the Wandering Minds music experience are Chris Marquand, Chops, Kris Forward, Bethany Harper Forward, Vickie Burick, Dixie in Australia, Babacar in Africa, and other local musicians from Asheville North Carolina and Portland Oregon. Jeff Whitworth, owner of Grey Eagle Music Hall in Asheville, helped enhance the music by playing with the effects on the instruments and vocals in real-time. Each song's lyric section details the musicians involved with the Wandering Minds. The styles played have ranged from bluegrass, disco funk, jam rock, jazz-fusion, organic electronic, and spanish classical... along with hip hop influences. Their sound can only be described as being original.
We hope you enjoy!
