Amy is the front "man"- in the form of a 5'8" blonde woman. "Crazy", "full of energy", and "that chick can wail" are the most common comments. Favorite songs to perform are all the originals along with "Think" by Aretha Franklin and "Piece of My Heart" by Janis Joplin. Believe it or not, Amy has found time to complete her undergraduate degree in Psychology, Master in Sociology, hold down a full-time job, gig as much as humanly possible, and marry the man of her dreams.
Brian (aka the man of Amy's dreams) is the guitarist and main songwriter of Phoenix Rising. He is native to Texas, where he and Amy first formed the band. He draws musical inspiration from such artists as Muddy Waters, The Rolling Stones, The Clash, Hank Williams, and Elton John. No matter what style of music Brian plays, he likes to incorporate a bluesy sensibility.
Bob developed a taste for seventies rock during the seventies, a decade that rocked. Bob got his first bass when he was 14 and has been playing ever since, becoming a veteran of countless garage bands and jam sessions. Playing favorites from Aerosmith, KISS, Boston, Rush, and others. Bob was rescued from 80s band purgatory by the fine folks in Phoenix Rising. More than anything, Bob likes writing about Bob in the third person. Bob.
David is an "in the pocket" drummer for this heavy-hittin' rock-n-roll band. He's been playing drums for over 25 yrs. in school & college & bar-bands along the way. He's learned different styles of music for the set, but is most comfortable playing rock & blues. With a wife & kids, Phoenix Risings' schedule is the perfect mix to keep live music flowing. See you at our next gig. Keep rockin'!!!!!
