The Autumn Saints

The Autumn Saints are an Anglo-American trio based in Oxford, UK. The band's music has its roots planted firmly in the American South, with lead singer Britt Strickland bringing the soulful, weighty music history of his home state of North Carolina to the City of Dreaming Spires. The southern storytelling tradition made famous by the likes of Dylan and Johnny Cash is very much alive in the Saints' music, with tales of hurricanes sweeping through the Appalachian Mountains and encounters with the devil at the crossroads unraveling in each song. The British influence in the band, though, is also unmistakable. The melodic, ethereal guitar lines that float and weave through the songs create the sort of atmospheric depth that British indie groups have always done so well. Both David Ireland (guitar) and Joel Brisk (drums) bring their own musical influences to the mix, from the shuffling rhythms and counter-rhythms of groups like the Stone Roses to the twisting, choppy guitar licks of Wilko Johnson.

 

Upcoming gigs include:

 

April 27 - Wheatsheaf, Oxford

April 28 - Are You Listening Festival, Reading

May 25 - Boar's Head, Kidderminster supporting Blackballed

May 26 - Bearded Theory Spring Gathering, Catton Hall
