I've lived and worked in the SF Bay area for the last 12 years. Lots of experience - toured US/EU/CAN, played in major studios in SF/LA. Comfortable in Blues, Folk, Funk, Soul, Country, Rock, Hip-Hop, etc. I have a great sounding MotionSound amp with a real horn for killer organ tones! https://youtu.be/Hy3r84H3Mtw http://kirbyleehammel.com/
No ego, just want to play what's best for the song and what the artist wants. Lots of studio experience in many styles. I take direction well and look forward to working with you!
Played and/or shared the stage with: Mark Kozelek, Steve Shelley, Will Oldham, Tony Saunders, Jennifer Hartswick, Miles Schon, Trampled by Turtles, Grahame Lesh, Lee Gallagher, Leon Russell, Nicki Lane, Doobie Brothers, the Tubes, Asleep at the Wheel.
