Bio

Chris Head – Vocals & Guitar
Chris Head can’t remember a time when he wasn’t writing songs, “seems like there’s been songs getting stuck and unstuck in my head forever”. Being raised on a steady diet of country and popular music while growing up in Kentucky, early influences included Hank Williams, Nat King Cole, George Jones, Dean Martin, Buck Owens, and countless other greats of the era. Chris moved to CA. in 1983 to pursue a career in music. He played with various local bands, including BGTT, which played up-and-down CA. After a number of years playing top 40 covers, Chris decided in 2004 to focus on his own songs. For the next three years, Chris wrote extensively, while also fine tuning his singing and playing. In 2007, Chris began advertising for musicians interested in playing original music. The first and only bass player to respond was Kevin Beers. The two musicians immediately clicked and have been playing together ever since, going on to form “TankHalfFull”. Chris has been married to the same beautiful woman (and the inspiration for many of his songs he will tell you...) for 23 years. They have one daughter who is currently attending college in northern CA.

Kevin Beers – Bass
Kevin Beers began his musical career playing trumpet in elementary, middle and high school bands. He took an early interest in jazz music and broadened his musical range by taking up bass guitar when he was 16. He played in various bands both during and after college. After settling down to raise a family, Kevin took a break from the bass and began writing songs on the acoustic guitar. In 2007, Kevin pursued an interest to perform original acoustic music. He became acquainted with Chris Head and together they formed “TankHalfFull”. Kevin’s musical influences include Wilco, Peter Himmelman, Dave Matthews Band & Neil Young.

Bob Willett – Harmonica…. lots of em!
Bob is a veteran of the northern CA. music scene. For 6 years Bob played in the northern CA. based Blues Band “T Lane and the Nitehawks”. The band dissolved late 2008 allowing Bob to branch out and do guest appearances for other bands and to play regular at all the hottest Blues Jam venues in the Bay Area. Bob has been around music all his life. He grew up in SF in the 50-60’s and got to see all the top bands in the history of Rock, Blues and Folk music. He started playing music as a hobby at a young age on a piano, but soon gave that up for an instrument he could always carry with him and play a tune….the harmonica. Since picking that up he has trained and played with the best harpists in the Bay Area. Harp players Lil Walter, Muddy Waters, Mark Hummel, James Cotton, Charlie Musselwhite, Norton Buffalo, Rod Piazza, and Kim Wilson have inspired him. Bob can play all types of music from Folk, Country, Blues and Rock. If he ain’t playin’ music he’s listening to it somewhere around the Bay Area.
