Charleston, SC’s Dangermuffin is an eclectic quartet that weaves lyrical themes of sea, sun, and spiritual connection with Americana, Island influenced, Folk and Jam grooves. The band’s live show swims between tasty acoustic, and rockin’ electric sounds. On the band’s 6th and latest release, ‘Heritage,’ Dangermuffin reaches into their creative arsenal to craft an album showcasing the band’s signature coastal-influenced grooves mixed with Americana sensibilities and Appalachian fingerpicking. The album’s lyrics contemplate the universal human connection to our ancestors, ancient traditions and symbols while yearning for humanity to get back to its roots. It is an audible showcase weaving introspective lyrics with catchy, nimble guitar riffs. Fittingly, the album’s soaring vocals were recorded in Charleston’s historic Unitarian Church, a National Historic Landmark built in 1772.

Singer-songwriter Gabe Lee’s Farmland offers hints of the songwriter’s unique perspective. A Nashville native, he grew up surrounded by music since early childhood — a certainty when one’s mother is a classical piano teacher. His own material mixes a deep understanding of music with what he learned outside of the house; his influences offer a homage to the greats of the classic rock canon including Creedence Clearwater Revival, Fleetwood Mac and Bob Dylan, along with tinges of his adolescent favorites including Nirvana and Bright Eyes. It’s a varied set of influences that results in an earnest delivery of stories about the intricacies of everyday life, the complications of love and the dark parts of the current state of the country.
