    It's usually just 2 of us playing all the instruments. New studio, new song. If you play drums or percussion, guitar, bass, keyboards, or any other instrument, we want to hear from you. Love you hear from some female vocalists and we don't care what you look like. Send at a phone video if you like our style and feel like you could add a sitar part or a soprano harmony. Old school jam rules. We just lay down tracks and see what comes out later. Not a lot of standing around or rehearsal time. Markus is a hippie who doesn't drink and eats only organic food, but Kyle is a pretty level headed working stiff. We're laid back but we sometimes get 4 songs in one weekend having to play and sing all the tracks. Love to have someone to just play rhythm guitar tracks or bass. You sort of have to get the whole Beatles through Woodstock connection though. The vibe is in Rock, Country, and Pop music. We're not trying to sound like anyone though. If the song sounds better with just you playing the kazoo then that's what it will be...This is all about the music for us. Peace and love, and we look forward to hearing from you even if you know someone who might fill in. The most important thing is to do something.
