Daddy Long Legs back over in the Netherlands in February07-11-2019
Brooklyn, NY-based trio Daddy Long Legs are: Brian Hurd (vocals, harmonica, guitar), Murat Akturk (slide guitar) and Josh Styles (drums, maracas). They made their Yep Roc Records debut last May with Lowdown Ways, their third studio album.
Produced by Jimmy Sutton and engineered by Alex Hall (JD McPherson, Pokey LaFarge, Jake La Botz) at Hi-Style Studios in Chicago, the album features 12 original compositions with songwriting contributions from JD McPherson and Sutton. A new direction from their first two studio albums (released by Norton Records), Lowdown Ways sees the boys widen their sonic horizons with field hollers, gospel, Cajun, and Mississippi Hill Music, coupled with their renowned supercharged, harp-driven R&B bangers.
When asked by Village Voice “What is Daddy Long Legs?,” Hurd answered, “Rock and roll salvation through the spirit of roots and blues.” While influenced by the likes of Son House, Captain Beefheart, Howlin’ Wolf, MC5, and Dr. Feelgood, their sound personifies garage rock and punk with a contemporary raw twist performed in their own brand of supercharged R&B." And that's exactly what to expect from them when they return to the Netherlands next February:
