We are excited to make a couple announcements regarding band personnel updates!
First, we would like to introduce our new lead singer, Tony Rust. Tony brings the band a wealth of experience as the lead singer of FAB (Favorite Album Band) Performances. FAB has been performing charity event concerts over the past several years in which they cover entire albums from favorite bands. Such bands include The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Eagles, The Doors, Prince, and Heart, among others. We are very excited to have Tony's passion for singing, and distinct blues/rock vocal styling leading Sometimes Blind into the next chapter of this band!
We would also like to introduce our new lead guitarist, Sydney Crapser. Sydney joins us on the recommendation of Tony, after the two had met during a theater performance. He brings a lot of experience as a lead guitarist, having played in a number of bands over the years of varying genres. He has the chops to improvise a solo on a moment's notice and lay down excellent leads on any song. We are glad to have Sydney aboard!
Hey all, after a long hiatus we're coming back with some personnel changes and some brand new material. We're excited to say that we've got a new singer that we've been rehearsing with for the past several months! His name is Tony Rust, and he's got a solid background in performing in various blues rock bands over the years. An official introduction will be coming soon.
Other than that, our lead guitarist, Matthew Goad, and our backing vocalist, Katie Johnson, have both recently stepped back from the band. We are currently looking for a new lead guitarist. More updates on that when we conclude our search.
More to come, stay tuned!
It is with heavy hearts that we announce Casey's departure from Sometimes Blind. As a founding member of our band, a talented singer with an exceptional vocal range, and a musician with a great understanding of melody and song dynamic, he will be sincerely missed. We appreciate his time and contributions while with us.
We plan to continue as a band, and will be looking for a new singer to step into Casey's place. Certainly reach out to us if interested. We're looking for a male rock singer, with a high level of commitment to all aspects of being in a band.
As of now, we will take a hiatus from playing shows and begin our search. As well, we have recorded a lot of ideas for new material and will be developing the ideas into new songs.
Our new song, "I'm Here", has recently been picked up by Ashland, OR based music blog, Chillfiltr, on one of their Spotify playlists. They have a number of great Spotify playlists, which all emphasize a focus on roots music. Ours is on the playlist titled, "Songlistr Lost Treasure - Indie Rock, Alternative, Americana". Check out this playlist and hear a lot of cool new tunes that all have a solid roots rock vibe!
