This Reverend preaches country blues with both feet on the ground and his hands in the dirt. The Reverend Peyton's Big Damn Band is the greatest porch blues band in the world. They are led by Reverend Peyton, who is considered the leading finger-picker today.
He has earned a reputation as both a uniquely compelling performer and a persuasive preacher of the rootsy country blues styles that caught his imagination early on and inspired him and his band to make the pilgrimage to Clarksdale, Mississippi, to study with blues masters like T-Model Ford, Robert Belfour and David "Honeyboy" Edwards.
The band plays as many as 300 shows each year, building one of the most dedicated communities of followers on the U.S. blues-rock scene. That community will love the band's latest album called "Dance Songs For Hard Times" - a country blues record done right and honestly - with its feet on the ground and both hands in the dirt.
