INTRODUCING

The

** Southern Raiders Band **

 

Biography:

The Southern Raiders Band (S.R.B.) began in mid 90’s as a studio project. Actually S.R.B. was first called the,” Twilight Rose Band,” but this was just a name used to send material to music publishers. The group was actually just different musicians and friends hired to lay down original music tracks that were being sent to these publishers. Twilight Rose 7Ahad two ten song albums that were titled, “Planetary Escape,” and another titled, “Southern Raiders,” the latter would later become the name of the real band instead of an album title. However, nonetheless, in a couple years some events happened at the studio that would turn studio friends into one of the most recognized power groups to come out of the area.

A couple of S.R.B. members met through different channels of music being performed at the Square Jaw Ranch studio in Alcoa, TN. Each person had been in bands previously and now was content writing music to try and gain a publishing contract. Neither really intended to be in a full-blown concert band again but was only interested in sending their original written material to music publishers. They were actually just friends in a

DRUMMER SINGS ONE

variety of musical styles that just happened to meet occasionally in passing in and out of the recording studio. One day a hired musicians did not show up to lay down vocal tracks and the now, S.R.B. founding member and guitarist, Johnny Abbott, had ask a friend at the studio if he would like to lay down a couple tracks of vocals on some music he had written because of the no-show that day. Well something very interesting happened that particular day because although Abbott wrote more of a hard rock style music and his friend was a die-hard country singer when the two met on tracks the chemistry went wild and the end product and sound was incredible. An energized southern country rock sound and style that neither one of them was aiming for. And for a not-too-long-of-a-8story-even-shorter, ended up creating a music group that in only two years would be performing in shows with major super groups such as Tim McGraw-Little Texas-Marshal Tucker-Three Dog Night-Sawyer Brown and many more, radio airplay, live television showcases and on and on and even recently two songs receiving foreign royalties, have over ten CDs of original music, and still continues to be successful recently reaching Number One on Amazon.com hottest new best selling album with, “Raise Southern Dixie”. A great southern rock album with Lee Butcher once again excelling on lead vocal, Johnny Abbott & Rus Michael southern blend guitar work, and of course, the powerhouse drum techniques of Toby Smith. There should be something for Snapshot000604everyone on the versatile album of southern music.

Moreover, S.R.B. has been able to maintain the same members all this time with the exception of  losing two members due to illness and one member and friend, George Burns, passed away on us. The S.R.B. members include: ** Johnny Abbott (Lead Guitar) – Lee Butcher (Lead Vocal/Bass Guitar) – Rus Michael (Lead Guitar/Vocal/Keyboard) – ** Toby Smith (Drums/Vocal)  So we hope you find the Southern Raiders Band bio a little interesting in that although we didn’t start the group in the traditional,” Let’s start a band,” approach, the longevity proves there’s more than one way to create a successful band. The future of S.R.B. is looking favorable and each member is as close as family and we hope to continue to produce enjoyable music for years to come. Thank you for reading a little about the Southern Raiders Band and God Bless.

HOW DO YOU WRITE MUSIC? What a complex question. But Here’s The Rules S.R.B. Uses To Write Our Music 4-U…

”  DA’ BOYZ FROM EM’ R  HILLS OF EAST TENNESSEE DONE, “GONE VIRAL…!”  WITH THEIR ORIGINAL TENNESSEE STYLE  JAMMIN’ “
WHEN WRITING MUSIC,there is a fine line between writing from the heart that enables emotions, feelings, memories, etc, that can touch others, as well as, you the writer. As you’re probably aware, music that is just scribbled down, from the hand, and shot out to, You Fans, often, doesn’t have any serious relate-ability, but yes, these songs can, Kick Ass!! And I for one love it when this happens, as so do others. However, these same fans, for example, You Fans, have hearts, emotions, memories, feelings etc. Moreover, as a Writer/Musician, I have written the majority of the 100+ songs I’ve recorded in the studio and live recordings on stage with my group the, Southern Raiders Band, (Calm Down! NO Not Spam…) and ever song I have written, I’ve tried to write from the heart with meaning for me, as well as, You The Fan, I hope. I only have a couple that I’ve ever written that didn’t have a true story about a situation(s) that has happened in real lives, if not mine, somebody else’s. I have a school friend, from back in the day, come and tell me he remembered the story I wrote about in a song of mine that he had recently heard and had been part of, although unmentioned in the song, he knew what I was writing about when he heard it, now that to me, was awesome. Songs can touch people’s lives in many ways. Aforementioned, although others may find a different meaning than the writer, it doesn’t matter, as long as the song completes the objective of music,… Write From The Heart And Touch The Soul….
