If you follow us on Instagram or Facebook, you may have heard that we are releasing a new single called "White Lady", on 12-7-18! It will be available on all streaming sites and available for download. There are no plans…
We're thrilled to announce that we were asked to write the intro music for our good friend's Netflix special "Rory Scovel Tries Standup for the First Time". The soundtrack will be released on vinyl by Jack White's "Third Man Records"…
Live & Listen is pleased to continue a brand new weekly feature known as Bands You Should Know. This new concept will highlight a different band each Friday with an interview, general background information, current happenings, as well as videos and audio from each band. After nearly two years of various interviews and artist spotlights, we feel that installing a consistent weekly feature is the perfect move as we progress forward.
For our fourth edition of Bands You Should Know, we sat down with Trey Francis (vocals) and Will Evans(guitar/synth/hamony vocals) of Dead 27s, an incredibly soulful five-piece out of Charleston, South Carolina. Since their formation in 2012, Dead 27s have racked up a total of six Charleston Music Awards, including Rock Band of the Year, Song of the Year for "Don't Comfort Me," Album of the Yearfor "Chase Your Devils Down," Guitarist of the Year for Wallace Mullinax (3rd straight year), Drummer of the Year for Daniel Crider, and Bassist of the Year for Oliver Goldstein. Dead 27s blends an incredibly warm, soulful vibe with honest Southern Rock roots, and we look forward to watching this band continue to flourish for years to come.
Dead 27s is Trey Francis (vocals), Wallace Mullinax (guitar, harmony vocals), Will Evans (guitar, synth, harmony vocals), Oliver Goldstein (bass), Daniel Crider (drums, harmony vocals)
Here we are in the summer of 2016, and Dead 27s is now in it's fourth official year of existence. How much experience did you guys have playing together before the band became official? What led to the band's official formation?
Trey: The level of experience playing together kind of varies across the board. Oliver (Goldstein) and Wallace (Mullinax) played together for years with different projects. Daniel (Crider) played with the two of them on a few things. Will and Wallace...y'all met at Carolina, right?
