Daddy Long Legs

Saturday 7 May 2016

Blues – Roots – Punk

Originally from St Louis, Missouri, this Brooklyn-based trio has taken the music scene by storm since the release of their debut album Evil Eye On You in 2012. Named for its harmonica blasting, blues bellowing frontman Daddy Long Legs, it is one of the wildest and most exciting groups of the current roots and blues revolution. The band is under contract with Norton Records and consists further of multi-talented guitarist Murat Akturk, cranking out everything from powerhouse country blues rhythms to multi-stringed slide riffs, and drummer/percussionist Josh Styles. The band has performed on stage with The Sonics, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Alabama Shakes, and backed Chicago legend T. Valentine on his album The Vampire. Just like their first album, their most recent Blood From A Stone makes perfectly clear what the band stands for: wild, unpolished, real blues. Or as they describe it: sweat and whiskey.
