"If you like orange juice you’ll like Mushman"
Award-winning Salt Lake City actor/musicians David Fetzer and Patrick Fugit are pretty straight forward when asked to sum up their musical collaboration. It’s a pretty abstract analysis; a perfect way to describe the band’s uninhibited and imaginative sound. Even if orange juice isn’t your thing, the music of Mushman has more than enough creativity to satisfy any listener’s appetite. The band’s name refers to movie star Steve McQueen, who used it as an alias.
Many would recognize Patrick Fugit as the star of “Almost Famous” and other popular films, but his most consistent role in life has been as an artistic collaborator and dear friend to David Fetzer, who writes and sings the most beautiful songs of innocence and experience you could hope to hear. Their influences are varied: Iron and Wine, Elliott Smith, Nick Drake, The Shins, Grandaddy, Neil Young, Cat Stevens, etc...
David Fetzer plays the guitar, the clarinet, the harmonica, sometimes some additonal keys, the guitar-banjo (with appropriate shame), and he sings most of the time. Patrick Fugit plays the guitar, the Flamenco guitar, the harmonica, and, when effectively goaded, he sings a bit. Camden”Camdalf” Chamberlain plays the bass and is a wizard at recording, mixing, and mastering. Doug Grose plays the keys and Ian Aldous plays the drums.
