An Ever Increasing Depth Chart

Perhaps the toughest part about this project is going to be motivating several people around the country.  I am dedicated to completing this, but if I need a specific part done with short notice I have to hope that someone in another timezone is available to lay down some tracks.

Check out the map to see our current distribution.

hooray for internets!

One remedy to this difficulty: keep on recruiting more musicians.  Redundancy is key!  If one musician is unavailable, then hopefully the next can take the reigns. I already have 2 banjo players, 2 bassists, 4 guitarists, and as of today, I have 2 new mandolinists!

I’d like you to welcome to the project Ann and Rob.

I met Ann through a friend at work.  We were discussing the project and my current need for a mandolin player, and she said “hey my sister can play, you should talk to her!”  I then learned that Ann also plays the violin!  Long story short, Ann was a shoo in.  Great to have her on board.

Rob is a fellow bandmate of Dan in The Hollows.  He has a great voice and definitely knows how to handle his mandle.  (I take full credit for that one.)  I met him at the last show I went to and he seems excited about being involved.  This is great!

And last but not least, we have another female vocalist on the roster.  I met Nicole at Michigan State University a few years ago after “rescuing” her from an apparently sketchy party.  Somehow we eventually got to discussing music and she sang a little tune for me.

From that moment, I decided that I must someday collaborate with her!  And now, I think we have the perfect voice for Abram’s wife.  Have a listen for yourself and check out the song Two Whys here.  She is actually releasing a CD very soon with her friend, check them out!

Things are looking good!  Of course a few more people couldn’t hurt…
