Drunken Prayer:

Morgan Geer, the songwriter behind Drunken Prayer, was born in San Francisco and grew up traveling around the US, following his folk- singing mother. Today he splits time between Portland, OR and Asheville, NC. He’s lived in nearly every region of the country and sounds like it. His is American music - straight, no irony chaser.

Drunken Prayer will likely bring to mind The Band for a lot of listeners, with the sense of place and history. But Morgan Geer’s songs and his singing often suggest a kinship with artists like Bobby Charles or Doug Sahm, musicians with Southern roots, with a yip and break to their voices, and notes of sadness offset by a wicked sense of humor.

Over the past two years Drunken Prayer has played hundreds of shows across 18 countries and across the US at venues such as the Pickathon Music Festival and San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. Geer's music has been featured on AMC, NPR, WFMU and SiriusXM.

The Great Dying:

Will Griffith, known musically as The Great Dying, is a Mississippi Delta born, country singer-songwriter residing in Oxford, MS. Although Will doesn’t see his dark country musings as directly blues influenced. "I want people to celebrate sad music because of its beauty. Sad songs help you laugh at your own sadness. They are meant to help you keep going,” says Griffith. Punk rock, however, felt like Will’s blues and was devoid of the phoniness and commercialism that drove tourism in the area surrounding his hometown of Cleveland, MS.
