Since forming in 2003, The Dewayn Brothers have forged a strong fan base with their progressive bluegrass sound and whiskey fueled stage show. After many self produced efforts the band teamed up with veteran producer Mike West (Split Lip Rayfield, Truckstop Honeymoon, Shawn Mullins) for their latest releases Critter Creole (2006) and Farmer (2007).
Recorded in Lawrence, Kansas at the Ninth Ward Pickin’ Parlor, Farmer brought The Dewayn Brothers to a new level of songwriting and performance. With themes ranging from the joys of cheap whiskey and perils of outlaw poker games to the struggles that can only be told through a woman’s eyes, fans of the band have been extremely enthusiastic about this current album.
From the beginning the band has kept plenty of asphalt under them with a current touring schedule that has them playing well over 200 shows a year in almost every state in the Union. Embracing their nomadic lifestyle has honed the band’s live show and made them a force to be reckoned with regardless of the venue.
Sharing the stage with acts such as Dr. Ralph Stanley, Leftover Salmon, Split Lip Rayfield, The Asylum Street Spankers and everyone in between, the band never fails to win over an audience.
