WALDO BLISS

.

Waldo Bliss plays acoustic based music with organic vocal harmonies.
The current lineup of the band for live playing includes Dan Carlson, Randy Ray Mitchell, Mindy Jones, Carolyn Snodgress and Dan Rothchild

Dan Carlson: acoustic guitar, vocals
Randy Ray Mitchell: acoustic & electric guitar, slide

Mindy Jones: vocals & percussion
Carolyn Snodgress: vocals & percussion
Dan Rothchild: bass

This LA-based band features shimmering three part vocal harmonies that live on top of acoustic and electric guitars, as well as bass, with some light and tasty percussion topping it off. They do original songs written by the band along with classic covers by great writers such as Brian Wilson, Laura Nyro and Dan Hicks.

Waldo Bliss has opened for a lot of great bands including The Bangles, America, Ian Hunter and Petula Clarke.

The band would like their ID line, “Music for the Inside of Your Body”, to be true for you, when you listen, as much as it is for them, when they are playing.

They want their sound to seep and percolate in, and all around, you…
