NEW CD RELEASES JUNE 3, 2014

Our national debut album, 'Love is the Devil' brings the sounds of Mississippi's Hill Country right up from the streets of Manhattan. We are really proud of the way these 13 songs turned out--frontman Bill Hammer wrote most of them, and they all feature the incredible Melissa Tong on fiddle. We were lucky enough to have members of the Kimbrough family record with us in Mississippi, and we cut half of the tracks back home with our New York band. More about the CD rollout and release shows in the days to come. Check out the press releases and new bio, too.

 

EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW OF LOVE IS THE DEVIL

Wow.  We are so grateful.  We did the exclusive preview of Love is the Devil down at the Juke Joint Festival and sold out every copy.  If you didn't make it to the Festival, you can listen to three of the songs right here under Music. 

 

NEXT NORTH MISSISSIPPI HILL COUNTRY NIGHT, Thursday, May 1 in NYC

It's back to our regular Hill Country Nights at Shrine World Music Venue in NYC.  We've been asked to help build the Thursday nights at Shrine so we'll be doing these on Thursday nights from now on.  On May 1, we have the Hill Country legend R.L. Boyce coming up from Mississippi to do a set.  See details under the calendar.
