Hailing from South Alabama and spending over a decade in New Orleans, revered singer-songwriter Grayson Capps has found listeners the world over enthralled by his stinging tales of the Southern Gothic. In his own words, he explains: "I write songs which have the voice of dead prophets masquerading as town drunks screaming 'look at us we're pretty, too!'" Over the course of five critically acclaimed studio albums and a cameo appearance in the Golden Globe Award-nominated film A Love Song For Bobby Long, one will find stunning depth to his discography, authenticating Grayson Capps as a rare American gem, equal parts country singer, bluesman, rock star, philosopher and poet. Jambase.com recently declared, "New Orleans' marvel Grayson Capps is alive and well and slowly building one of the most phenomenal songbooks in America today. If ever there were a cat primed to pick up where Lowell George and John Prine have left off, it's Capps." Grayson Capps is currently touring the world in support of his new album, The Lost Cause Minstrels, on Brooklyn-based indie label The Royal Potato Family. His band, also called The Lost Cause Minstrels, features Corky Hughes on lead guitar, Chris Spies on Hammond B-3, Christian Grizzard on bass and John Milham on drums.
"If you can imagine an old time Southern revival meeting where instead of singing prayers the music is about honky-tonks, hookers, drunks and bootleggers you'll be part way to picturing the music of Grayson Capps and The Lost Cause Minstrels.Rock and roll as well as country and blues sound like they've been stewed over an open fire under a full moon with lyrics woven out of the fabric of real people's lives. Part storyteller and part poet, Capps is one of the most spellbinding performers you'll hear in a long time…" - Blogcritics.com
"With 'The Lost Cause Minstrels,' Capps joins the Drive-By Truckers on the short list of artists who can tell a serious story while evoking the thrills of vintage Southern rock." - Sou
