Born and raised in Michigan, and now calling East TN home, is bassist, Brian Wells.
Brian started playing guitar at the age of 14, and cut his teeth playing along with his favorite AC/DC and Metallica songs along with many other Rock, Metal, and 80's Hair Bands. His guitar heroes were Eddie Van Halen and George Lynch.
Brian joined his first band, an original Rock act with a few covers, when he was 20. His next project was an 80's and 90's cover band called Joker, which found significant regional success. In his late 20's took an interest in bass guitar, and found it to be an easy transition and a natural fit. Brian then took over bass duties for the classic rock cover band, Barney Fritz, with whom he got the opportunity to be the backing band for an impromptu set with famous blues musician Larry McCrae.
Brian sites: "My 34 years of playing have brought me so many memorable experiences. I consider myself truly blessed. I look forward to bringing my professionalism, skill, and love of playing to all the Shady Sadie fans out there."
