Another Tangent is a San Francisco based band known for its live performances and eclectic musical style. While deeply steeped in the rock and blues tradition, the Band also delivers a wide range of other music that spans many genres, including ska, punk, country, Americana, Southern rock, folk, funk and soul. This mix comes as a result of the diverse makeup of the band. Damian is an Irish native from Clare, a region famous for its traditional Irish music, an influence that gives his guitar playing a unique style and phrasing. Jim is a Bay Area native and whiskey throated vocalist whose musical influences cover the spectrum from Black Sabbath and Cream to Jaco Pastorius and Bob Marley. Using these influences he weaves a low end that is intricate and driving. Mike is an LA native and veteran of the sunset strip music scene. His diverse musical influences include Frank Zappa, Neil Young and Crazy Horse, Rush and Robert Earl Keen. His rock solid meter and live wire kick drum thump give the band its pounding pulse.
