BioThe Dirty Guv'nahs have been spreading their rock gospel across the Southeast for three years now, showcasing their sound which has been best described as "a passionate, jubilant slice of rock-meets-Americana." In their hometown of Knoxville, Tennessee, they’ve graduated from playing packed out bars where latecomers are turned away from the door, to playing theaters where capacity crowds consistently cram in and press against the stage to hear another three hour helping of what Metro Pulse dubbed, "rock the way God intended."
Nobody enjoys himself more on stage than front man James Trimble, who draws comparisons to Jagger, Morrison, and c**ker, but the show doesn't revolve around him. Guv'nahs' shows are a family affair, with six members and an ensemble of guests pitching in to weave an aural tapestry of all things Southern music—rock, blues, country, and soul.
The Guv'nahs are interested in creating big songs and big performances. Their voices and their passion on stage are looking to strike a deeper chord, and their rhythms and their words are filled with hope. While they refuse to ignore pain and brokenness inherent to life, their songs gather up all the good that they witness in streets, festivals, bars, churches, parks, and theaters and proclaim what is true—we have plenty to celebrate. We have one another.
