Christmas came early this year for The Brilliant Deductions. In the wake of a bunch of delays and injuries, our good friend Jan Bugaiski found work with another band that does a much better job paying the bills. We wish him the best of luck in this endeavor and intend to call him in for guest appearances in the months ahead.
Filling the void Jan left in our line-up was not an easy task but I’m delighted to say we’ve found a great player and fabulous co-conspirator in the form of Chris Mares. Chris has a great sense of melody and is right on our same wave-length when it comes to style and approach. He’s already jumping in head first learning some of our set and, even more importantly, contributing to the arrangements of the tracks we’ve got on our calendar to record in January.
Chris is a local Fallbrook man, with influences that include Oasis, Foo Fighters, Tom Petty, Noel Gallagher, and Beady Eye. He also writes and sings his own Christian Rock music and lends his talent to the worship team of one of our local churches.
We’re delighted to have Chris onboard… more photos and musical sneak-preview very soon!
