Sometimes the stars and planets align and things that can be difficult come surprisingly easy. Such is the case with the formation of Dead 27s. After playing a few casual gigs, the obvious chemistry could no longer be ignored. Since 2012, the band has been on a mission. Relentlessly making their way through the booming Charleston, SC music scene, the Dead 27s garnered the attention and praise of local media, calling them, the exciting new band to watch and fan support soon followed. In 2013, Dead 27s took home multiple Charleston City Paper Music Awards for “Song of the Year”, “Rock Band of the Year”, “Up and Coming Artist of the Year”, and guitarist Wallace Mullinax was honored with his second straight award as Charleston’s “Guitarist of the Year”. The band has since opened for Toubab Krewe, Patterson Hood, Col. Bruce Hampton, Orgone, Chris Robinson Brotherhood and shared the stage at festivals with many others. Their sound has been described as “a Southern blend of rock and soul”. In April 2014 and to much critical acclaim, Dead 27s released their 7 song debut, Chase Your Devils Down”. In summer 2014, the band was honored to place in the top 24 for Vh1's “Make a Band Famous” competition. Although their sound comes from many different influences, the band has their focus on the future. Currently touring while writing and recording, the band continues to gain momentum as they spread their music across the country.
The folk singers job is to comfort the disturbed, and to disturb the comfortable.
Woody Guthrie said these words many years ago, yet they still resonate today just as much as ever. Migrant Worker makes music that hopefully gives justice to the above statement.
Since forming in early 2012, Migrant Worker has brought their mixture of American Roots Music to the greater Atlanta area. Blurring the lines between Country, Folk and Rock, Migrant Worker seeks to bring back the urgency and realness that was once so ever present in the musical landscape.
On any given night the band can be seen bringing their original music to the masses while still paying homage to anyone from Gram Parsons to Woody Guthrie, Ry Cooder to Ryan Adams, Led Zeppelin to Lead Belly, and anything in between. Migrant Worker is a band which pays tribute to the past while looking forward.
