Jeff Pryor

The Jeff Pryor Band is a sextet consisting of journeyman rockers and A-list session musicians. Before forming the band, guitarist Jeff Pryor spent almost two decades on the Southern California club circuit with the bands Wedgewood, the Rhythm Rockers, White Line Fever, and the Quicktones. Working with producer Daniel Moore, Pryor put together the all-star outfit bearing his name, bringing in singer Joey Bowen -- formerly of DC Drive, General Cluster Funk, and Hot Chicken Stew -- who had released albums with the first two bands and two solo albums of his own; guitarist Stephen Bruton, who also had two solo albums in addition to working as a session musician for a variety of country and pop musicians; keyboardist David Paich, a member of Toto and one of the busiest session musicians in Los Angeles; bassist Leland Sklar of the Section, another prolific session musician for major pop and rock artists; and drummer Simon Phillips, who, in addition to plenty of rock and jazz session work, had been a touring and/or recording member of Big Country, Judas Priest, Toto, Whitesnake, and the Who. The sextet recorded an album of Pryor's songs, Loverland, released on Teze Records in July 2003. ~ William Ruhlmann
