Richard Nelson is 27 years old and was born in Dayton, Ohio. His father was a classical guitar teacher and taught Nelson to play acoustic guitar at a young age. Later, Nelson taught himself electric guitar and bass and performed for talent shows and small rock gigs in high school with his teenage garage band Big Pink. Nelson also studied trombone through high school and became an esteemed jazz trombonist in the state of Tennessee, winning top chairs in multiple All-State bands. Nelson attended Auburn University where he continued to pursue music both academically and as a hobby, performing with The Auburn Knights Orchestra and The Andrew Thielen Big Band. Nelson’s first gig in Clovis was a solo acoustic show at Bandolero Brewery, where he showcased how he branches away from the typical country-western setlists and performed songs of every genre, to include metal and pop. Parker Baum is 29 years old and was born in Pasadena, Texas. During Baum’s childhood, his father instilled in him a passion for rock n roll, listening to bands like Boston, ELO, Motley Crue and Def Leppard, and paved the way for Baum's music interest. Enamored by drummers like Tommy Lee, Jimmy “The Rev” Sullivan, and Rick Allen, Baum found himself behind his first drum kit as a freshman in high school and knew he had found his calling. He spent the following years aiding students with recording projects. In Lubbock, Texas, he drummed for a metal act before moving to Alpine. It was here that he met another musician, Anthony Ray Wright who recruited Baum to assist with his country act. In December of 2016 Baum was featured on SA LIVE in San Antonio for a Christmas special. Electing to pursue other passions in his life, Baum took a brief musical hiatus broken in 2021 by forming the band The Owl’s Offering with vocalist Kyle Liddell. Baum records powerful backup vocals in addition to producing brutal technical drum parts.
