Blynd Ambyssion was formed in 2023 and are based out of Sioux City, Iowa. Although the band is new, the musicians are not. You may recognize some of them from the local music scene, having been in other bands over the years.

We are a versatile band and not genre specific. We cover a lot of pop, rock, country, and decade music.

Brittani Bauer – lead vocals

Sioux City, Ia.

     She was in bands from 2009-2014 named Sabre Roze, High intelligence, Carlin Park and sang with multiple bands as a guest with friends in town for many years and, as of late, the Hippie Go Lucky Band. Lots of karaoke competitions, sang at Awesome biker nights, as well as a ABC televised karaoke show.

     She has always loved singing, and performing. It’s in my blood she says, and we believe it!! She put performing on the back burner to grow her family, and as her kids grew older She missed the stage. She loves to dance, do makeup and hair, crochet and anything artsy. Shes a big people person and works as a medical assistant and Pharmacy Technician as her main gig.

     His first real band experience was at the age of 23 where he played a gig with a country band called Whiskey River out of Denison, IA. Up until now he has been the drummer for the bands Big Lizard, Straight On, and Hippie Go Lucky, all based out of Sioux City, Ia. and has filled in on occasion for other drummers. Todd also makes online music.

Phil Carlin – bass & vocals

Sioux City, Ia.

“My name is Phil “Flip” Carlin.

From The Beatles and chance meetings in the mid ’70s with a number of my musical heroes, I KNEW “My Path”! I’m blessed to be friends with some amazing iconic musicians and their families, whom I now call dear friends! So many bands I’ve been a happy part of.

NEVER happy with “off the rack” guitars of the 70’s, I started making my own back then. I still do. Guitar and Bass, are the instruments of my soul. I’m happy at both. I’m a goof, the stage has ALWAYS been “my place”

And now with an awesome band that I share with my daughter, son-in-law and 2 awesome new friends…

You will love, laugh, and be entertained and leave very happy.”

Jonathan Banks – guitar & vocals
