Deep Ellum plays a homespun brand of soulful Americana they like to call bootcut boogie, cosmic country, and roadhouse rock n'roll. Fronted by singer-songwriter David Glasebrook, the group evokes Tony Joe White and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Gram Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Crazy Horse and The Band, Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson, Stax and Excello.
But what do they sound like? Deep Ellum sounds like the lazy Mississippi slowly rollin' by on a southern summer afternoon; like the locusts singing at the close of a long day; like a stone-cold trucker barreling down the highway at 110 miles per hour; like a lonesome drifter wailing on his harmonica; like car wheels on a gravel road.
Since playing their first show in May 2011, a sold-out show in their hometown of Santa Cruz, Ca, the band has performed regularly, sharing stages with Howlin Rain, Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Moondoggies, Magic Trick, The Romany Rye, The White Buffalo, Sic Alps, The Parson Red Heads, and others. The group's new record "Welcome to Deep Ellum" hit stores in late autumn 2012--available on 12" 45 rpm vinyl and CD, as well as digital downloads.
