Memphis Crawl Bringing Their Bluesy Southern Rock Northbound

Memphis Crawl Bringing Their Bluesy Southern Rock Northbound

Gigs Planned, Band Will Soon Head into Suffolk Studios For New Recording

 

Long Island, NY (June, 2016) — When you think of some of the most prolific southern blues rockers in music history, bands that actually grew up in the south usually come to mind–Lynyrd Skynyrd perhaps, or maybe the Allman Brothers–but New York’s Memphis Crawl seem to flip that paradigm on its head as a Northern rock outfit with the same southern charm!

 

Described as “Bluesy”,”Ballsy”,”Soulful” and “Convention Defying”,  Memphis Crawl was formed in 2004 by charismatic frontman Matty O’Brien on the blue-collar streets of New York City. The son of a counter-culture mother from Brooklyn and a country-blues bred outlaw daddy from the South, Matty was raised on a strict diet of rock ‘n roll and delta blues and even as a small child it was clear that this “old soul” was a natural performer. Soon after putting the group together, Matty found some of the “heaviest cats around” in guitarist Bryan Stevens, bassist Slim Vincenti, and percussionist Michael Powder.  From their first jam session together it was obvious that their collective energy and chemistry was truly something special and a once-in-a-lifetime gift. The four piece powerhouse has toured all over the U.S. from NYC to Los Angeles and parts of Europe, and their fan base–known as “The CrawlDogs”–have become a huge funky family almost a cross between a counterculture commune and a traveling circus. With O’Brien’s Jim Morrison-esque persona, a stage presence and vocal delivery that meets the raw emotion of Joe Cocker, and a sound reminiscent of bands like My Morning Jacket and the Black Crowes- a glimpse at their live show can truly display to any hard core rock ‘n roll fans why their motto is “play like it’s your last night on Earth!!”.
