“The way people come into your life when you need them, it's wonderful and it happens in so many ways. It's like having an angel. Somebody comes along and helps you get right.You see, we are here, as far as I can tell, to help each other; our brothers, our sisters, our friends, our enemies. That is to help each other and not hurt each other. ”
— Stevie Ray Vaughan
C&TCW is a stellar Rock/Blues band with an eclectic influence spanning from gospel to metal. We pull our threads from all corners of the music world. Clint Echols (vocals, guitar) started playing professionally the day after high school graduation. He started with country, moved swiftly through rock/hard rock, metal, and even dabbled in top 40. Gregg McDonald (drums) started 40 years ago playing live in his father’s country band and in between sermons at Church. Dan Giddens (bass) was heavily influenced by his mother's passion for the Blues, and spent his time playing bass in metal bands for nearly a decade before joining the crew. Austin Echols (guitar/vocals) returned from Hawaii after completing his service in the Army and immediately began to fine tune his celestial licks and contribute to the project. Our blend of sound melds SRV with Pink Floyd and even taps into a little Pantera and Pearl Jam. ZZ Top, Marcus King, & Chris Stapleton are all undeniable influences as well.
