The Dead South
Try not to step on the chalk outlines when navigating through prairie pickers The Dead South's catalogue. Over the course of two full-length albums, it's true that the villainous, murderous match-strikers and revenge-takers outnumber those with good intentions, but in the end, no heinous act goes unpunished.
The Dead South, a gold rush vibing four-piece acoustic bluegrass set from Saskatchewan, infuse the genre's traditional trappings with an air of frontier recklessness, whiskey breakfasts and grizzled tin-pan showmanship. The sound, build on a taut configuration of cello, mandolin, banjo and guitar, speeds like a train past polite definitions of bluegrass into the grittier, rowdier spaces of the traditional world.
Currently one of the hottest tickets on both sides of the Atlantic, The Dead South's rise to touring juggernaut status is in part a very modern music biz fairytale, an algorithm-breaking success story in a one hundred-million view youtube hit. The other factor, one simpler to see in terms of cause and effect, is their actual show - on stage they deliver, show after sold out show, a relentlessly great, high-energy frenzy that has resulted in nearly 50,000 tickets sold in 2018. The numbers are adding up for this Billboard charting, JUNO Award winning, Next Big Sound Trendsetting, Road Gold certified band. Through partnerships with ethical ticket resellers, The Dead South are helping fans fight back against shady secondary ticket markets, and have become, in their success, a model of fan-first artist citizenship.
The Dead South's original and current lineup includes the gnarled baritone of Nate Hilts, Scott Pringle on mandolin, whistling cellist Danny Kenyon and virtuosic banjo player Colton Crawford. The four-piece, acoustic string-driven approach puts the interplay of unique and versatile voices front and centre, with Hilts, Pringle and Kenyon all sharing lead vocal duties.
Since their 2016 release, The Dead South have maintained this formidable touring pace while also finding time to pop up in fitting and meaningful ways; the band contributed to the recent, star-studded bluegrass and Americana Roger Miller tribute album, Hilts has appeared in sparse and sweet duets with fellow prairie boy Colter Wall, and the band has taken the first steps towards a new album with a trip to Muscle Shoals. The Dead South are ready for 2019 with an impressive amount of fuel for the fire.
The Hooten Hallers
Columbia, Missouri trio The Hooten Hallers are a high-energy blues-rock band known for hard-traveling and wild live shows, with a seemingly endless tour schedule. The myriad of influences in their music incorporates elements of rhythm & blues, rock’n’roll, honky tonk, jazz, soul, and punk with a thematic penchant for the strange and the unexplained. Their live shows take the listener on a seamless ride from unapologetically raucous blues on the lap steel and bass sax, to a sweet three part harmony country ballad, to a romping dance number.
2017’s self-titled album ‘The Hooten Hallers’ on Big Muddy Records, is the culmination of their experiences from a decade of performing and traveling together. They’ve injected the album with the stories and characters they’ve encountered over many years and miles. Produced by Johnny Walker (Soledad Brothers, All Seeing Eyes) and Kristo Baricevic (Big Muddy Records), the Hooten Hallers' latest effort showcases their evolution as musicians and songwriters. It garnered attention by Vice’s Noisey - "This album rules"; Rock'N'Reel (UK) - "This is a band that really understands and exudes the history of rock and roll"; Impose Magazine - "another stunner of a music collection"; New Releases Now - "one of the most dynamic live shows around"; AXS - "This album is sheer madness in the best way"; Ground Sounds - "gritty, groovy, and bluesy”; amongst others.
Dec 21, 2018 welcomed the release of a new album, ‘Live in Missouri’, recorded at The Blue Note in Columbia, MO earlier in the year. This new recording closely captures the intense energy of The Hooten Hallers in concert, with a combination of improvisation, extended versions of songs, and many fan favorites.
Listeners often detect hints of George Thorogood, Morphine, and Tom Waits, but anyone who has seen The Hooten Hallers live knows that this power trio is unlike anything they’ve experienced before.
John Randall’s demonically-tinged vocals and manic guitar, and Andy Rehm's screaming falsetto vocals and steady, pounding drum beat keep the band focused on their unique blend of deep blues and country punk. Kellie Everett brings the power with the deep rumble of her baritone and bass saxophones. When The Hooten Hallers come to town, you know it’s gonna be a party!
Wood & Wire
Wood & Wire is one of the most promising new bands on Austin’s bluegrass and acoustic scene. Mixing in elements of Americana and swing, its healthy dose of original music and traditional bluegrass tunes keep audiences riveted. The band keeps people on their toes, too, with a cappella ballads, funky acoustic jams and rippin’ fast instrumentals.
