About the band
With a sound labeled “Motor City Dixie,” Snowblynd provides listeners with real, rooted rock ‘n roll and an unmistakable outlaw country attitude. These influences are not only present in their music, but are also present in their live performances as well.
Snowblynd began as a group of teenagers born into the wrong generation who wanted to hear and play real rock ‘n roll for real rock ‘n roll fans. Brad Williams – vocals, Ryan Smith – guitar, Greg Wyld – guitar, and Barry Damron – drums, began honing their craft in local clubs and lounges, and generating a decent amount of buzz while struggling to find a bass player who shared their vision. During their very first show, there were more people in the bar than ever before. They also won the Columbus Battle of The Bands competition in 1999.
Snowblynd began recording their debut CD without a bass player when they stumbled upon the perfect solution: head engineer and bass player Joe Viers. Joe filled in on bass for a few songs during the recording, and the chemistry between them all was undeniable. It didn’t take long for Joe to become a permanent member. The recent addition of Nate Hollman and his Hammond B3 has polished the band off with the perfect, finishing touch and has created a unique sound that no one else has in Columbus. Their talent and fan base helped them land opening slots for national acts like Tesla, Blackberry Smoke, Black Oak Arkansas, Black Label Society, Bret Michaels, Jackyl, David Allen Coe, Molly Hatchet, Whitelion, Union, and the Bullet Boys.
