Western Fusion was formed in the late 90’s by band leader Brian Childress. Brian’s goals were to have a band that sounded like radio and be composed of some of the best musicians Arizona has to offer. Western Fusion has been on the local scene for almost 20 years and has enjoyed playing various venues throughout the state. The band has opened for National Acts such as: Blake Shelton and Mark Wills at Graham Central Station (formerly Rockin’ Rodeo).

With a mellow, easy voice and wise songwriting that hints of a life of honest living, Jim Bachmann has been entertaining the Phoenix scene over the past decade. Bachmann's music blends Americana, Roots, Blues and Country into a sound that stays true to tradition while serving up his own blend of Sonoran Desert soaked good-timin' stonerbilly.
