Born out of a drink at a dive bar in Edmonton, Alberta, The Denim Daddies are five long, lost ‘brothers’ trying to navigate the weird & wild world that is modern country music. The Denim Daddies are a shot of the ol’ outlaw attitude mixed with the modernism of alt-country, splashed with the Nashville sound and skillfully glassed into the high-powered form of a dynamic live band. The Denim Daddies attribute their recognizable sound to their influences which only begin with Steve Earle, Flying Burrito Brothers, and John Prine to name a few. Their songwriting blends politically and socially charged themes with simple, down to earth lyrics, which are layered atop intense and intricate parts with tight vocal harmonies and a rippin’ rhythm section.

Blurring the lines between country and rock these dance floor troubadours are embracing the resurgence and new sounds of modern country music. From dirty cowboy bars, to hipster juke joints, to sweaty basements, The Denim Daddies appeal to every country music stereotype.
