Brandon "Bub" Pettiford -- Drums/Bass
Drumming has been part of Brandon's life since he was a toddler beating on pots and pans or
anything else he could get his hands on and turn into a drum. He got his first real drum kit at the age of six and has been
playing ever since. With talent beyond his years, Brandon often takes people by surprise when they notice that's it's a
thirteen-year old behind the drums and not an adult. Brandon also serves a higher purpose with his drumming. He has been
part of the Adult Contemporary Praise and Worship team at his church since he was seven years old. His natural gift for
rhythm extends beyond the drums to bass, so it's not unusual to see him strumming when he's not drumming. Having perfect
pitch heightens his ability to pick out the proper notes to play when learning a new song for a Pett Crow set.
Wes "Tuner" Crow -- Guitar/Vocals
Wes has been singing and playing guitar since the age of nine. He is blessed with the gift of perfect pitch,
which has earned him the nickname "Tuner." He can name any single note at random (without needing a reference),
can identify each note that makes up a chord, even extremely complex ones and can tune instruments without the aid of
tuning devices. In February 2011, Wes proudly represented the Columbus Blues Alliance at the IBC Youth Showcase
in Memphis, TN. Wes plays a range of musical genres, with special emphasis on the blues. While exceptionally gifted
vocally and on the guitar, Tuner also plays piano, bass and harmonica.
Julia Crow -- Bass/Keyboard/Washboard
Julia has been playing piano since she was four years old, violin since the age of eight and more recently, the bass.
On occasion, she also plays the washboard, making her a very versatile member of the band. Unlike most fourteen year olds,
her tastes in music are old-school -- she prefers the music of the blues masters, as well as The Beatles, David Bowie, Paul McCartney & Wings and Pink Floyd, which makes playing with Pett Crow the perfect outlet for her musical artistry. Julia was chosen to represent her school district at a benefit concert for Nationwide Children's Hospital Heart Center in June 2011.
