American singer-songwriter Thad Cockrell (lead singer of LEAGUES) inspires his audience to dream outside their means through thoughtful interpretation of relatable circumstance. Cockrell NATURALLY displays himself within each of his musical masterpieces, connecting listeners and providing an outlet for self-understanding.
“I truly believe that the song is just the tool given to create the connection, and through connection we all slowly but surely become a little more seen, a little bit more understood and a little less alone.”
In the mid to late ‘90s, Kenny Roby and 6 String Drag stood out as pioneers of the nascent alt-country movement. After a leaving a mark on this, as well as the Americana / No Depression scene, the Carolinas quartet essentially broke up.
The band's second record 'High Hat' was produced by Steve Earle and Ray Kennedy and was released in 1997 on Earle's Warner Brothers imprint label E-Squared Record. This album remains an undisputed classic of its era.
In early 2014, 6 String Drag reformed with the 'High Hat' line-up and recorded their 2015 comeback record 'Roots Rock & Roll' to much fan excitement and critical acclaim.
In January 2018, the band reissued a 20th anniversary reissue of 'High Hat' on CD, vinyl and digitally, following up with their fourth full-length studio record 'Top of The World' in March 2018. This album features 6 String Drag founding members and frontmen Kenny Roby and Rob Keller, along with new members Dan Davis and Luis Rodriguez. Both releases are available through Schoolkids Records through Redeye Worldwide Distribution.
