With a sound that calls to mind a meeting of Otis Redding and the Stooges—JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound get crowds twisting and writhing on the floor--a post-punk reimagining of JB’s moves and MG’s grooves.
Five song EP featuring Andre with his shit-hot touring band, The Goldstars.
One part rock, one part R&B and all parts Andre having fun and doing his thing.
Tips its hat to road-map influences from Motown to Mellencamp, the Delta bluesmen to folk pickers of ‘60s Greenwich Village---the result is a singular sound spurred on by years spent on tour honing something rare that is altogether its own.
Rabble-rousing in the finest old school punk tradition. Comfortable with invisible eyes in the sky? Jon sure as hell isn't.
Like the woman herself, Working Girl’s Guitar crackles with a loose, straightforward energy fit to be played everywhere from palaces to bars.

Third record in the Daytrotter Vinyl Series featuring two of Daytrotter's oldest friends, Dawes and Justin Townes Earle
The songs tap into grooves as disparate as Turkish maqsoum, Punjabi bhangra, Jamaican ska, Greek rebetiko, classic punk and old-school mambo.
