08-16-11 – Portland, OR>Seattle, WA – My name is Johnny C. Wood and I’m a singer/songwriter and rhythm/lead guitarist and have been writing and playing music for over 25 years. I’m relatively new to the area and moved here from Northern Cali. My influences for this project are The Mother Hips, Moe, Cake, Ween, Sublime, Phish, Allman Bros, etc. My original music is very eclectic, with a firm Funk foundation that can hold up Rock, Reggae, Blues, Jam, Groove, etc. This recording was the best quality we had but it doesn’t represent my guitar tone very well, I was using a borrowed amp and a new pedal board.
I’ve been in several Bands, my most recent one was a Power Trio with myself on guitar and vocals, plus bass and drums. We added keys for gigs whenever possible. I prefer to have a solid keyboardist, but could easily do the Trio core group again. As a vocalist I can model many voices, but I can sound a lot like Cake, Mother Hips, and Bradley from Sublime. This project would sound a lot like Sublime, minus the punk, plus Jams. As a songwriter I focus on song structure more and don’t overdo the long drawn out jammy solos.
I am a virtual Band in a Box, all I need are some skilled musicians who can practice AT LEAST once a week, and preferably twice whenever possible. I could easily do more. I’m in my 30s and have no family, but it’s ok if you do. I might prefer other musicians in their 30s for that peer feel, but I’m open to the right musicians for the project. I’m also very 420 friendly and you should at least be 420 tolerant. I don’t overdo drink or smoke when I play, I’d prefer to sound like a pro.
