The Dead South
The Dead South
With elements of folk, bluegrass, classical and rock, The Dead South have changed the very notion of what is possible with acoustic instruments. From Regina, Canada, The Dead South are bringing their boot-stompin’ acoustic mayhem to massive audiences worldwide, with the help of a real-deal hit in DzIn Hell I’ll Be In Good Company,dz which has racked up over 65 million YouTube Streams. Their most recent album, Illusion & Doubt, hit Top 5 on Billboard’s Bluegrass chart and netted this breakout band two JUNO Award nominations and one win.
Columbia, Missouri trio The Hooten Hallers are a high-energy blues, rock, and soul band known for hard-traveling and wild live shows, with a seemingly endless tour schedule. The myriad of influences in their music range from pre-war blues to rock'n'roll to honky tonk and a hint of jazz, with a thematic penchant for the strange and the unexplained. In the same vein, the Hooten Hallers’ music isn’t quite Americana and it’s not quite punk, but a bit of both, fused together in a drunken tangle. 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.

The Hooten Hallers’ new self-titled album, out April 21, 2017 on Big Muddy Records, is the culmination of their experiences from 10 years of performing and traveling together. They’ve injected the album with the stories and characters they’ve been meeting on the road all this time. 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 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"; No Depression - "evokes images of Tom Waits tending to a trotline at Lake of the Ozarks", amongst others.

John Randall’s demonically-tinged vocals and blues-inspired, 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!
Philadelphia's Black Horse Motel crafts its genre-fluid city folk sound by taking traditional folk instrumentation and lyrics, blending them with Americana roots, rock, blues, and country influences and tying it all together with rich vocal harmonies. The resulting sound is infectiously foot-stomping, heart-breaking, familiar and new.

In 2012, Black Horse Motel offered their first recording; a self-titled EP. In 2013, they followed up with their debut full-length LP, Red Summer Spirit.

The next three years brought several lineup changes while the group continued to hone their sound and expand their fan base. The current group is Desiree Haney(cello/keys/vocals), Megan Manning (drums/percussion/vocals), Galen Fitzpatrick (guitar/dobro/vocals), and Ryann Lynch (fiddle/vocals).

The now cemented four piece released Parable, a 5-song EP, in January 2017, after a successful PledgeMusic campaign.

In the fall of 2017, Black Horse Motel competed in Philadelphia councilman David Oh’s city-wide PHL Live music competition and won the Country/Folk category! Prizes included cash and studio time
Black Horse Motel also won twice at 2018’s local Homey Awards, hosted by 93.7 WSTW - for Best Folk Song, and EP of the Year!
Partnering again with engineer/producer Ron DiSilvestro, the band headed back to the renowned Studio 4 in Conshohocken, PA and Forge Recording in Oreland, PA, to record their next EP in the winter of 2018. The finished product was once again mastered by Grammy Award winner, Phil Nicolo.
And Then You Were Gone was released on July 20, 2018 and is available for purchase and streaming through all major online outlets.

Black Horse Motel has performed at the famed Philadelphia Folk Festival in Schwenksville, PA, the Dewey Beach Music Conference and Dewey Beach Americana Festival in Dewey Beach, DE, Musikfest in Bethlehem, PA, Xtreme Folk Festival in Telford, PA and the People’s Choice Festival in State College, PA. The group has also performed at many popular Philadelphia-area venues, including World Cafe Live, Boot & Saddle, Ardmore Music Hall, and Bourbon & Branch. The group has begun spreading their sound to the greater Philadelphia area, with performances in Jenkintown, King of Prussia, Phoenixville, New Hope, State College, and Wilkes-Barre, as well as to Brooklyn, NY, Ithaca, NY, Baltimore, MD, Charleston, WV, and Nashville, TN. Black Horse Motel has been featured as live performers on several radio programs, including Delaware’s WSTW Hometown Heroes show, The Folk Show on WXPN, Folkadelphia on XPN2, and Y-Not Radio.
