Here’s a few songs on Spotify by my current band called The AshDads. We’re going for a roots/country type thing.
I wrote and sang two of them, 3 Sheets To The Wind and Tennessee after we decided that if we weren’t gigging during the pandemic we should write some country songs. So, I attempted to write a bonafide cryin’ in my beer tune with 3 Sheets. With Tennessee, I some how thought that I was supposed to sound like John Denver and it wasn’t my intention but I guess my roots are showing. I also sing You Ain’t Here No More. But, didn’t write it. Payback In Blues was written and sung by our rhythm guitar player and he and I made our best Statler Brothers impersonation.
Here they are….

Hmm, the other two were just posted yesterday. Maybe they’re not worthy.

I love it Roch. A few friends and I did something very similar to this around 30 years ago. We were not really country players we just tapped into some of the roots of the music we usually played. I also got to sing a few tunes as well as play drums.

Ironically it was probably the most fun I ever had playing music. Thanks for sharing!

We’re having fun. We’re lucky because our guitar player is a Fanshawe graduate and loves to do this stuff as a hobby. We’ve gigged three times since the pandemic began. Renfrew is a small town. Not much of a music scene. I was gone for 30 years so, I’m out of the loop. So, it’s old friends and beer on Thursday nights.

Not really my cup of tea, but I can still appreciate the musicianship and production quality in these songs.
Really nice job!

Curious to know the kit you used for the recordings.

Usually a Supra or Jazz Fest. 20 inch Gretsch Round Badge kick. K’s for cymbals. Usually Master sound hats. As a singing drummer, I rarely use toms. Only live. Then, I give them a whack or two to impress the chicks.

Roch,
Really enjoyed that! Loved the brush work and you can tell that all the players are seasoned. Music not noise.

Thanks. We have an intersting dynamic. We all grew up together back in the 60’s. And 70’s. Then it was off into the big world as we each graduated. Everybody kept playing all of those years and coincidently all moved back to our home town. Retired, relocated, etc. I grew up across the street from one and played high school bands with another.
