Sinners and Saints (L-R): Perry Fowler and Mark Baran.
$5 ($8 ages 18+).
press release: Americana duo Sinners & Saints write acoustic, country-tinged tunes with compelling harmonies, featuring foot-powered percussion on repurposed drums from an abandoned kit. Since forming in 2011, Perry Fowler and Mark Baran have shared the stage up and down the east coast with the likes of Flogging Molly, Shovels and Rope, Robert Earl Keen, Daniel Romano, St Paul & the Broken Bones, SUSTO, Sun Kil Moon, Bombadil, and many others.
“The group delivers countrified tales of love with twangy harmonies and rootsy instrumentation – harmonica, fiddle, etc… “Stupid Little Songs” is deeply Southern, but contemporary… The harmonies and instrumentation recall early Avett Brothers. “Stupid Little Songs” is marked by the same raw, rugged feel and harmonies that blend well without the singers’ voices all mashing together. You can hear the highs, the lows, and the in-betweens.” - The Charlotte Observer
All in all, Love and Misery by Sinners and Saints is probably the best folk rock release that I’ve heard this year. The music is expertly performed; the lyrics are interesting, and its upbeat and a lot of fun. I would highly recommend this record.” - WLUR
