THE RED CHORD is looking for a new guitar player as Jonny Fay is leaving the band to focus on running his recording studio.
The band will be auditioning guitar players through March. Tablature files have been prepared for the song "Black Santa." Those interested should make a video or audio recording of themselves playing the track. According to the group, "We are looking for someone diverse in their abilities as a guitar player who is willing to be on the road 8-10 months out of the year. Touring experience is a must. Get in touch with us at [email protected] or through myspace.com/theredchord. Jonny Fay will be contributing to the writing of our next record and recording it with us. We are going to miss having him in the band and we wish him all the best."
Regarding his departure, Fay issued the following statement:
"This was not an easy decision to make. I have loved every second of my time in this band, and I will miss it dearly. However, as long as I have been involved in music my true passion has been recording, and I feel that the time has come for me to give it my undivided attention. I have opened a recording studio in Milford, NH, and will be devoting my time to recording and producing bands and musicians, locally and nationally. This has been an incredible experience, and I will continue to support The Red Chord and help them in any way that I can in the future. I want to thank all of the friends I have made along the way, and all the fans that have given us support during my time with the band. Most of all, I want to thank Greg, Mike, Guy and Brad for being great friends and helping make the past year and a half truly amazing. Thanks once more to everyone – no one will be forgotten."
