As the guise continue to add acoustic instuments the gendre changes. The task of generating original material is now upon us and in conjunction with playing every weekend and holding down day gigs, play time is over and the work begins.
 
 As the first 4 cut CD continues to sell at our shows we decided the rest of the players must be incorporated into the brew. With the addition of Neil Whitmoyer's flute and harmonicas, and Mike Davis's mandolin the sound will be vastly changed. Don't worry, our song list for our live shows has simply been added to with equally tasty classic favs that keep us in the bars. But you'll start hearing the coveted originals I speak of. See ya at the show!

JOSH FRENCH - Lead/Slide Guitar, Vocals
 
Josh's parents bought him his first guitar at the age of 13, and he played in local bands until leaving for college. After graduating from the University of Maryland and wearing the garb of a business man for a few years, Josh has returned to the area to play lead guitar in Dem Guise.  At age 31, Josh is thankful to find a group of dedicated, non-ego driven musicians to inspire him to new levels.
