Sinners & Saints www.facebook.com/SinnersSaintsNC http://sinnersandsaintsmusic.com
Sometimes you need a friend to laugh with and sometimes you need a friend to cry with. The two-man band Sinners & Saints, from Charlotte, NC, fits the bill for both. Whether they’re crooning about heartbreak or tearing it up with joyful abandon, you’ll feel happier for having listened. Perry Fowler and Mark Baran infuse their acoustic, country-tinged tunes with compelling harmonies and foot-powered percussion on repurposed drums from an abandoned kit.
Since the band’s formation in 2011, Sinners & Saints has been gathering a following of fans who turn to their whiskey drinking, shit kickin’, sweet loving music for a good time but find something more – an irrepressible optimism even in dark times. We’re all sinners and we’re all saints, and we’re all in it together.
The band has 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.
Sinners & Saints recently released their second full-length album, On The Other Side, in partnership with Silent Uproar Records in March 2017.
“(On the Other Side) is a roots lover’s brew of bluegrass, country twang, and folk. Filled with songs about drinking, love, heartbreak, and adventure, the album has a refreshingly vintage old-school feel.” –Mother Church Pew
“On the Other Side delivers ten songs with addictive melodies and simple, infectious beats. You might find yourself involuntarily nodding along before noticing the sometimes sorrowful lyrics…Listening to this record is like walking into a slightly seedy dive bar in an unfamiliar town and meeting your new best friends.” –Glide Magazine
