The Deslondes tour Europe starting THIS WEEK


Sam Doores, Riley Downing, Dan Cutler, John James Tourville and Cameron Snyder are The Deslondes, a band of songwriters who mine American roots music to forge their own sound. A random meeting at Oklahoma’s Woody Guthrie Folk Festival became an annual jam at the same event before they all ended up in New Orleans. The Deslondes eventually formed from various other groups such as The Tumbleweeds and Hurray For The Riff Raff and they named themselves after the street in the Holy Cross neighborhood of the Crescent City where they finally came together.

The Deslondes mine from the rich history of American music to craft their compelling and wholly unique eponymous debut album out on New West Records. Co-produced by the band and in-demand producer Andrija Tokic (Benjamin Booker, Alabama Shakes) at his Nashville studio, the songs are influenced by classic soul, rock & roll, R&B, folk, roots, country, swamp-boogie, honky-tonk and pre-war music and introduce a collective of gifted singer-songwriters with a deep love for the past and a palpable passion for the present.

Having spent a long time on tour in the States, the band are now brining their live shows to Europe - starting THIS WEEK - and it's clear that they're exited. “I’ve been looking forward to this all summer,” says Riley. “For us that’s the reward for touring theses last six years. I finally get to go over there and share what we’ve been doing over here.” Anticipation is high to hear this musical melting-pot do their thing on this side of the Pond.
