Hailing from North Lake Tahoe, CA, americana/roots rock band Dead Winter Carpenters has built a reputation for pouring their heart and soul into each performance. Over the past decade, the band has worked hard to position themselves, wrote Portland Metronome, “at the forefront of a youthful generation trying to redefine what string music is and what it can do.” That progressive nature shines through loud and clear on the band’s upcoming new release “Sinners ‘n’ Freaks” due out on April 24th, 2020. The 5-song EP is DWC’s fifth studio effort and coincides with the band’s 10th anniversary. The release is a celebration of the hard roads previously traveled and the road that lies ahead. Recorded in January 2020 at Baxter’s Ranch in Auburn, CA, the band found a masterful ally with a keen ear and sensibility in studio owner/engineer Matt Baxter. Born of an organic, roots based approach, Sinners ‘n’ Freaks rings true to the Sierra Nevada foothills.
The band's fourth studio project, Washoe, is a 12-song collection of originals was recorded in Reno's Sierra Sonics Studio (Ozzy Ozbourne, Eminem, Dr. Dre, Collective Soul) and co-produced by Dead Winter Carpenters and Zachary Girdis. The band's previous albums include the group's 2010 self-titled debut, Ain't It Strange (2012), and the much-acclaimed Dirt Nap (2014). They also released a single “Roller Coaster” in the summer of 2018 featuring alt-country hero Jackie Green on organ.
Reminiscent of genre-benders like Jack White, Chris Thile, and Sam Bush, Dead Winter Carpenters harmoniously blend refined musical ability with a scarcely restrained tendency to let it all hang out. The result is a controlled burn, a riveting sound, and a connection with fans that sells out shows and has the band sharing stages with the likes of Jason Isbell, Greensky Bluegrass, and Hard Working Americans.
Members include Jesse Dunn (acoustic and electric guitars, vocals), Jenni Charles (fiddle, vocals), Nick Swimley (lead telecaster guitar, vocals), Brian Huston (drums, vocals), and Jeremy Plog (bass, vocals). A steadily touring band since forming in 2010, Dead Winter Carpenters has entertained growing crowds at notable festivals including High Sierra Music Festival and Strawberry Music Festival (CA), Del Fest (MD), Northwest String Summit (OR), Harvest Music Festival (AR), and more. Dead Winter Carpenters is a band with the ambition, talent, and authenticity. Look for them to continue to delight – and invite – fans from many music camps.
