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, they shine through their live performances as well.
Snowblynd began as a group of teenagers born into the wrong generation, who wanted to 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. Snowblynd's debut performance set a record high draw for the venue, and later that year, they claimed victory at the Columbus Battle of the Bands competition. While generating a decent amount of buzz, they struggled to find a bass player who shared their vision.
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 later addition of Nate Hollman and his Hammond B3 added the finishing touch and created a sound unlike anything else around Columbus. Their talent and fan base helped them land opening slots for national acts like Tesla, Blackberry Smoke, Black Oak Arkansas, Zakk Wylde and Black Label Society, Bret Michaels, Jackyl, David Allen Coe, Molly Hatchet, White Lion, Union, and the Bullet Boys.
