Picked Over is a West Shore Pizza born band resulting from the accumulation of artists that play in many other projects around Tahoe, thus the name "Picked Over". Playing folk originals, the lead singer Chris Taylor started writing lyrics at an early age but picked up the guitar in 2012 and adapted his writing style to the mountains that inspired his new music. David Faber, a mentor to Chris' guitar playing, decided to learn the mandolin and took flight to become the first addition to Picked Over. Abby Groman, a native Tahomian and Upright bass player followed a few years after when she graduated college and returned to Tahoma. The most recent addition to Picked over is Chris Grant on drums. As picked over was originally a string band, Chris G. has taken the music of picked over to a new level using his professionally tuned skills to give us all a rhythm to ride along with.
