Slow Recovery is Chip Bates and David Nelms.These two musicians started playing together two decades ago as teenagers in high school. After several bands, recording projects, and 18 years they have come together again to unleash their unique take on rock.

Chip Bates is currently based out of Lawton,Ok. He has been playing bass for over 20 years. He has a love for rock and a passion for the blues. Chip has been a collabrative artist working with people like: George Wallentin from Austria, Bjorn from Sweden, Gary Paul,Jr.in South Carolina, Phil Johnson in North Carolina, Chris Bowen from Primo Recording, and now David Nelms of Revolution9000/Lumberjack Mafia. Chip takes great pride in having worked with musicians who feel music in their soul. Most of the projects Chip Bates has worked on have been rock or pop oriented, but, with his distinct and soulful vocal style, most agree: his unique stamp on songs always shines through.

David Nelms is based out of Round Rock,Tx and has been playing guitar for over 20 years. He has built a following over the past two decades with bands like Fear of Reason, Madame Sloth, Lumberjack Mafia, and his recording project: Revolution9000. David's guitar style is genre bending and almost chameleon like, but his foundation is most solidly rock. David Nelms sound is unique and easily distinguished from all other musicians. Whether he's shredding a mind blowing riff or playing heartfelt acoustic, there is no doubt who the axe wielder is!!
