The name of our project is Chutes n’ Leaves. We hope to record our debut album in the next year or two. A lot of songs are funny ala the ODDS. But we also have a heavy blues rock and a bit of s grungy vibe as well. We don’t get to rehearse as much as we would like as we work shift work. That’s part of the reason that we don’t have a rhythm guitarist. Which is unfortunate because if we had one; it’d free me up to play lead; sing etc
