"Drawing influences from the American string band tradition as well as the modern rock and roll aesthetic, the Stumble Brothers are a marriage of Austin Bluegrass wizards Appalachian Dinosaur Exhibit and long time jam scene veterans, Flounders Without Eyes. Principal song writers, Chevy Dixon and Chris Baker (ADE) are given groove by Joe Meir and Andy Markoff (FWE). Their live show ambles through introspective alt-country ballads, barn burning southern rock, smokey reggae, and even brushes up against punk rock sensibility to keep crowds on their toes and dancing. Their debut record, Tales From The American Wasteland, is a celebration of the beauty found in the most depraved corners of the world. Made up of 8 original songs, the record is the result of experiences lived and imagined by Baker and Dixon, who's songs are plainly spoken, telling tales of yesterday's criminals, today's downtrodden, and characters on the fringes, both living and dead."
