I have been performing live in the Seattle Area since 2003, mostly with my band, The Swim Team. I have released 3 albums with The Swim Team, and we are working to put out 2 more before 2018. I have also put out 2 solo albums as Amos Etheridge, as well as a Jazz album and a Christmas album under a band I play with from Knoxville, TN called The Fierce Invalids. The Fierce Invalids are curently working on an album I wrote about a trip to Scotland, which is also called Scotland. Though The Swim Team still performs live several times a year, I generally play solo shows where I play foot drums, guitar, harmonica and sing from my collection of over 100 original songs or the 500+ cover songs I have accumulated in my personal "Jukebox" software, of which I am also the developer. My motivation for making and playing music is simply the fascination.
