Back City Woods: Dirt From Which We Came

Back City Woods is an Americana/alt-country band from Macon, GA. Starting out as an acoustic duo who never left the studio, the band has grown into a five-headed monster with a barn storming attitude. They want their audience to cut loose and lock into the groove. Classic Southern rock licks and vocal harmonies mixed with uptempo bluegrass banjo, grounded with a bass line and an in-your-face drum beat that will get your feet moving.

Their debut EP Dirt From Which We Came may sound a bit rushed at times, but the sheer fun and enjoyment of the players comes tumbling out of the speakers. Good time music that means business.

Daniel NeSmith: vocals, electric and acoustic guitar, banjo
Michael Collins: vocals, electric and upright bass, organ, percussion, harmonica
Cal Mathis: acoustic and electric guitar, banjo
Nathan Garrett: vocals and acoustic guitar
James Lengel: drums and percussion
