Hailing from the hills of Appalachia, The Gentleman & Liars are a five-man group playing their new fusion of Country. Every member has a diverse musical background and it shows through in their music. With the majority of the band growing up in East Tennessee, you can hear the sounds they grew up with along with a more modern approach to traditional music. They feature everything from rockabilly-style chugging hollowbody riffs to twangy, capoed banjo rolls, and melodic walking bass with a tight drum groove. Drawing inspiration from a long list of artists that balance themes of love lost and found, disappointment, and joy, The Gentleman & Liars style of music breaks through some of the boundaries of traditional music while trying to honor it all the same.
