Band of HeathensVoted #1 Roots Band by The Alternate Root Magazine

At some point, you’ve heard someone say about a band, “you’ve got to see them live.”  The Band of Heathens is one of those bands.  The Austin-based outfit has put out four albums over the last few years and have garnered a pair of Americana Music Association award nominations.  But you’ve got to see them live.  “One of the fun things about playing in this band is that we don’t just play folk music or just play country music or just play R&B.  We really kind of mash it all together and have fun with it,” says guitarist and singer Gordy Quist.

They just released fourth album, Sunday Morning Record.  “We set out to make a record that chronicled the journey of the band through a really difficult and uncertain time,” says singer and guitarist Ed Jurdi.  The band also features drummer Richard Millsap, bassist Ryan Bowman, and keyboard player Ryan Nealon.

With a sound akin to The Band, The Jayhawks, Little Feat, The Black Crowes and even some funky Dr. John thrown in for good measure, their music is hard to categorize, but easy to love.
