From musical hot bed, Athens, Georgia, this six piece plays a combination of lilting country rock and reverb heavy indie. The track “Johnny Utah” is a standout from their 2010 release Hampton’s Lullaby. The music is a heavy on banjo plinks and pedal steel guitar but without having an overly folky, Mumford and Sons type feel. They are currently on tour with Grace Potter and the Nocturnals.
