The Washington Post called Andre “A master at pumping out fast, funky rhythms on an instrument not usually associated with earthy syncopation. A versatile student of the music, Thierry can’t be lumped into Zydeco’s old-school R&B-influenced camp or its nouveau, rap-inspired one: He and his band, lay down both soulful, traditional slow-dances and bottom-end-booming kinetic groovers.”
Some of Andre's most groundbreaking artistic works have resulted when awareness and experience from distant genres and unrelated forms collaborated through an evolution of French Creole, Zydeco and Accordion Soul. Undoubtedly, Andre's style isn't conventional, he and his accordions provide a signature sound by creating magnetic sonic landscapes. The rhythmic songs played drive an atmospheric blend, giving his band a powerful edge, naturally building a dedicated following through constant shows, touring and a string of recordings like "It's About Time," "A Whole Lotta Somthin" and "Are You Ready To Learn".
A rootsy rock n’ roll band born and raised in the Santa Cruz Mountains. Influenced by those early surroundings, songwriters Jamie and Kellen Coffis’ blend of folk, blues, R&B and straight-ahead rock is evidence an upbringing spent listening to all of the right records from Tom Petty, Neil Young, and The Beatles.
“These guys have a beach vibe without a beach sound – nope, these guys are pure rock n’ roll – the dirty, good stuff, that puts the song ahead of everything else.” - RICHIE FRIEMAN – PEN’S EYE VIEW
Wolf Hamlin is the husky voice of salvation in a land of shattered dreams. He sings as if he were raised as a grizzly and writes as if he were schooled by gypsies. Backed by a band that has stolen thunder from the heavens and teardrops from the angels, Hamlin confirms what we all love about the sad, beautiful music of our country: It was born in the dust of outcasts and was crafted into melodies for all of us.
Hamlin fronts a band of masterful players--they cast his visions into colorful tapestries of haunted todays and raw tomorrows. The songs are propelled by the taut and ornery rhythm section of drummer Joe O' Loughlin, bassist Andrew Cox and acoustic guitarist Karl Wente. The groove is sweetened by the fiddles of Lindsey Kemp and James Chasia and then lacerated by the virtuoso guitar licks of Tim Miller. The Front Porch Drifters summon up the spirits of Bakersfield country, New Orleans funk, Cajun whimsy, Civil War balladry and heartland rock and roll, and make it their own spicy gumbo. It is Americana that makes you feel the hangover in the deepest well of your heart, and transcendence in the brightest spaces of your soul.
When you think of New Orleans, the city’s foremost flambeaux-lit traditions of Mardi Gras, Bourbon Street, voodoo, Po’ boys, beads, gumbo, and second line undoubtedly come to mind. You can also count Big Sam’s Funky Nation amongst those NOLA treasures.
Known for a boisterous blend of funk, jazz, rock, and hip-hop, nothing short of seismic live “experiences,” and a whole lot of Southern charm, they may be The Big Easy’s best kept secret.
