About The Band

Four men, from different musical backgrounds, combine the influences of their past and their vision of the future to create a sound so unique, yet so recognizable, that it can be mistaken as nothing but The Last Straw. Screaming riffs, impeccable percussion,roaring slide guitar, and the sensation of the perfect bass notes fill the sound that becomes so easily familiar.Songs like ..Rock N' Roll Queen," and ..She Don't Love You" are reminiscent of some of The Last Straw's greatest influences; such as The Black Crowes,The Allman Brothers, and The Beatles.

Kyle Daniel's lyrics scream blues,soul, and rock with the power of a voice far beyond his years. Jason Graumlich's notes stream from his amplifier in perfect accompaniment, while Marc Williams keeps the bass line fresh for every song and Pearce Harrison marks the beat with his well timed thunder. The combination of all four men's eclectic southern roots and influences produces a stripped down, in your face sound that's familiar, yet fresh. Their huge guitar solos and keys sweep over the top of the hip-swinging bass lines and precisely timed drums and combine with many of the same elements that made bands like The Jimi Hendrix Experience, Led Zeppelin, and The Who,legendary.

Not often is it that you find something that is so fresh, unique, and new wrapped up in a sound that pleases your senses like The Last Straw. On stage they go huge on songs like "Down the Line" and ..Take a Ridea:nd blend covers from the Grateful Dead to Rage Against the Machine into their originals. They've performed in both festivaland concert format, and their long list of accomplishments includes The Warren Haynes X-mas Jam 2010,

The Dogwood Festival 2010, The Forcastle Festival 2009, as well as opening for Blues Traveler later that year. They're a powerhouse in Middle Tennessee, and recognized throughout the Southeast as one of the best progressive southern rock bands touring today. They have received great accolades and multiple awards. Their work ethic and dedication to the music is taking them places.....and fast!
