MIchael moved to Nashville from his native Kentucky and was playing shows before he’d unpacked his car – and has been going strong ever since. In demand as a session player and sideman, he’s toured with everyone from Hank Williams, Jr. to John Fogerty and many in between. Michael joined Poco in 2010 and brought an element of improvisational chops that delighted longtime fans of the band. His skills as a musician and songwriter are a core element of C615.

Long revered in Nashville as one of the most solid, dependable drummers in town, Rick’s talents as a songwriter were known to Poco audiences as a co-writer of one of the bands’ last hit singles (Call It Love) years before his arrival in the band in 2016. A veteran of countless sessions and tours (among them a stint in Burrito Deluxe with Sneaky Pete Kleinow and Garth Hudson), Rick’s talents as a songwriter and vocalist are on equal display as his musical chops in C615.
Bill became known to legions of country music fans as one half of the duo Foster and Lloyd during a run as RCA recording artists with three hit albums under their belt. Later Bill collaborated with Rusty Young from Poco, Patrick Simmons of the Doobie Brothers, and John Cowan from New Grass Revival in the Sky Kings – and has string of solo albums to his credit that have been hailed as some of the finest guitar-driven power pop of the past 30 years.

Tom was the last musician to join Poco prior to Rusty Young’s passing in 2021 – Tom had been part of Idlewheel, a band that included Poco bassist Jack Sundrud since 2008 and had also toured with a long laundry list of singer/songwriters during his many years in Philadelphia, including a multi-year stint as a “permanent special guest” of the Marshall Tucker Band. Tom’s signature style on a multitude of instruments anchors C615’s sound in the roots from whence it came.
