Grievous Angel

Grievous Angel

2008-03-24

Grievous Angel has been delighting fans at festivals, concert venues and juke joints throughout Michigan for years now, delivering their own rollicking brand of American roots music. Revving up at the fabled crossroads where folk, rockabilly, blues, and alt-country were born, they burn rubber through the backwoods and bayous of the American south. This musical road trip careens through west Texas, Memphis and the gut-funky soulful side of their own native Detroit. The Smithsonian can keep the artifacts, GRIEVOUS ANGEL rumbles across the length and breadth of American music with a lot of down home grease and nary a whit of reverence. A soul strut is as likely to wind up in the gas tank as a Fort Worth shuffle. These guys will burn anything to get where they’re going. The map blew out of the window at the last truck stop, so just sit back and enjoy the ride…. GRIEVOUS ANGEL. Detroit Music Award Winner - Outstanding Acoustic Group (2005) – Detroit Music Award Winner - Outstanding Folk Group (2004)
