Nashville Sunday Night: Desert Noises

Desert Noises

Desert Noises

Said to “hit the sweet spot between Mumford & Son’s power-folk and My Morning Jacket’s passionate post-Southern rock”, Roadkill Ghost Choir headlines this week’s Nashville Sunday Night, Live from 3rd & Lindsley. Brothers Andrew, Zach, and Maxx Shepard, with friends Stephen Garza and Kiffy Meyer, makeup this alternative rock band from DeLand, Florida. In Tongues, their debut full-length album, was released this past summer and received wide critical acclaim. The group’s accolades include touring with Band of Horses and performing on the David Letterman Show, as well as festival inclusions at Bonnaroo, SXSW, and Lollapalooza.

Desert Noises will open up for Roadkill Ghost Choir this week at Lightning 100’s Nashville Sunday Night. In order to establish a reputation as a “must-see live act”, Desert Noises has spent the majority of its time touring. Leaving behind their family and friends, front man Kyle Henderson and fellow band-mates hit the road three years ago to begin touring relentlessly, and haven’t stopped since. 27 Ways, the group’s most recent album, features “beat-oriented soul” as well as “classic psychedelic rock” influences, and pays tribute to their decision to leave their Utah Valley homes in pursuit of music.
