ELI HOWARD AND THE GREATER GOOD has an alternative country rock sound that has not only created a dedicated fan base in the Northwest and beyond but allowed him to share the stage with artists including the Steel Woods, Whiskey Myers, Shane Smith and the Saints and William Clark Green. Their new single “Wildfire” is rapidly gaining popularity on Spotify.
The Dead and Down:
THIS BAND ENVELOPES THE INTROSPECTIVE AND OFTEN HEAVY SONGWRITING OF TAYLOR BURLAGE IN A BLANKET OF SOUND DESCENDED FROM SOUTHERN ROCK, AND PSYCHEDELIA. THE DEAD & DOWN WILL TAKE YOU ON A JOURNEY; MOMENTS OF COSMIC FLARE AND PURE, UNADULTERATED ROCK AND ROLL BALANCED WITH A WESTERN FEEL. IMAGINE IF KEITH RICHARDS AND JOHN PRINE WERE IN PINK FLOYD AND YOU MIGHT FIND A STARTING POINT FOR WHAT THEY SOUND LIKE.
“The Dead and Down have a sound that doesn’t fit into one bin. They combine elements of Country, Americana, and Rock for a sonic experience that stays interesting. Their new song, “Switchbacks” has a solid country-rock feel, but the break in the middle is a lot more akin to prog rock. It’s a combo that works!” – Bob Wall, KGVM Bozeman
Formerly known as Not James Taylor, the Dead & Down was started as a duo project between songwriter Taylor Burlage and guitarist James Burne. After a year of gigging they amassed a solid local following in their hometown of Bozeman, Montana. Through a series of chance mishaps and lucky breaks they added Josh Higginbottom on drums, Matt Angelo on keys, and Dave Efries on bass to create a truly Montanan sound that reflects their eclectic backgrounds.
The frontman of the Billings-based “Arterial Drive,” Drew McDowell has been writing songs and performing in Montana for almost a decade. During the occasional breaks from gigging with his indie rock band, he and his beloved roadworn Martin guitar play americana songs derived from his experiences while drifting on this cosmic rock. McDowell sings a healthy blend of storytelling originals and customized classic covers. Sure to be the perfect vibes for a chill winery/beanery set OR a high-energy bar/brewery set! He is prepped to put on an amazing show.
