"An old school riot in the streets"...That's what one writer called The 40 Acre Mule.
Influenced by the pillars of Rhythm & Blues like Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Bo Diddley and Ray Charles and inspired by recent artists such as J.D. McPherson, Nathaniel Rateliff and Gary Clark Jr., THE 40 ACRE MULE – J. Isaiah Evans: Guitar & Vocals, Robert Anderson: Drums, Tim Cooper: Bass, Chris Evetts: Baritone Sax & Percussion, and John Pedigo: Guitar & Vocals - quickly built their own unique sound by blending vintage Rock & Roll, Rhythm & Blues, Soul and just a touch of Country. It was a sound that soon caught on with The James Hunter Six, The Reverend Horton Heat, Eleven Hundred Springs, Ken Bethea of Old 97s, Alejandro Escovedo, Rosie Flores and more.
Since forming in Dallas, Texas in 2015, THE 40 ACRE MULE has built a loyal following the old-fashioned way, they earned it! Playing countless bars and packed clubs, they watched crowds grow mainly by word of mouth.
After years of putting in the work, THE 40 ACRE MULE followed in the footsteps of good friends, The Vandoliers and Joshua Ray Walker, and signed with State Fair Records. Their debut album, GOODNIGHT & GOOD LUCK, is climbing the Americana charts powered by a hit video and single, "Bathroom Walls", which Rolling Stone Magazine recently named to their list of "Americana Songs You Must Hear Now".
Now, with 2020 on the horizon, The 40 Acre Mule is ready to make some noise across the U.S...spreading their own brand of roots rock & roll!
