Local favorites on the rise recorded live at one of our favorite venues. The Owsley Brothers ripped it up at Williams Backyard Boogie in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida.
Hailing from the Gulf Coast of Florida The Owsley Brothers Began as the Bedroom Recording project of multi-instrumentalist J.E. Reynolds. Armed with a cheap guitar, half a drum kit and an 8-track recorder, Reynolds crafted Last Years Acclaimed EP Pure Lust.
Within a few months his Unique blend of Lo-Fi Scuzz & Gut Bucket Blues attracted much attention & glowing reviews of blog community stalwarts; My Old Kentucky Blog, Aquariaum Drunkard, Rollo & Grady, & Some Velvet Blog. The Owsley Brothers showcase his darker punk & blues underbelly: pounding drums, soulful vocals, reverb drenched guitars and undeniably catchy hooks.
The songs on this EP are charmingly lo-fi, each track draws the listener in, transporting them to a place where the past and present collide. The Owsley Brothers are garage-blues from the dark side, a complex, genre-bending puzzle that is immediately listenable.
