Yes, we need a lead guitar player. You read correctly that we'd like this player to almost not play at all.
There is a talented rhythm guitarist covering the essential parts of our songs. We have noted that lead guitarists who need to play constantly make bands worse. We'd like a player with a great tone and some soulful, musical licks placed around the songs who can stay away from playing all over everything. Especially stay away from the vocal lines. James Calvin Wilsey who played on the first four Chris Isaak albums is a good example.
We are an original rock band with country and alternative elements. We usually play sets around 45 minutes, sometimes more, sometimes a little less.
If you come with vocals or multi-instrumental ability, all the better. We are recording our second album of originals now. If everything works out, we would have you record on the new stuff. The band has played around LA quite a bit over the last few years. We generally can be compared to a Stones, Petty, Replacements, Wilco kinda vibe.
