Daddy Long Legs is a man. A tall man. A tall, well-dressed, imposing man who blows the harmonica as if breathing life and soul into Delta bluesmen long dead… a trio of characters forging rock n’ roll spectacle for the eyes and ears, hearkening back to when troubadours drank moonshine and took their role as entertainers more seriously.

New York City’s most blueswailing trio, have been spreading their gospel throughout the globe since the release of their debut album. Originally from St Louis, Daddy Long Legs drives Delta – blues with an once of punk garage attitude & an inch of stomper R’nd Roll music trend roots.

The band has performed onstage with The Sonics, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, Alabama Shakes, The Jim Jones Revue, and backed Chicago legend T. Valentine on his album, “The Vampire”. A recent tour of Spain heralded them winners of Best Live Performance of the Year – a true honor! For fans of Howlin’ Wolf, Captain Beefheart, Little Walter, and Dr. Feelgood.

Now the boys return with their second full length offering, “Blood From A Stone” (Norton Records) – 13 stunning new studio tracks produced by Matt Verta-Ray (Heavy Trash), which sees the band maintain the wild, raw energy of their first record, but reveal a growth in both songwriting and production. Hear the thump and bash of drummer/ percussionist Josh Styles, searing slide and rhythm from multi-talented guitarist Murat Akturk, and the signature howling harmonica of Daddy Long Legs himself. The end result is the original, unbeatable, revival-tent mayhem that alternately sweats, bleeds, shouts and stomps real-deal roots and blues.
