Hailing from the deep South in Gainesville, FL, Big Shoals has staked their claim as a serious band, playing their own mixture of rock/americana since 2012 . They released their debut album, "Still Go On" in April of 2014 to great reviews and went on to tour and play shows with such notable acts as Patterson Hood of the Drive-By Truckers, James McMurtry, American Aquarium, and Cory Branan, among many others. They released their sophomore album, "HARD LESSONS" July 15th this year. The new record was cited as one of the "50 Most Anticipated Albums Of 2016" by The Revue. Upon release, "HARD LESSONS" has been receiving high praise in the critical world, with NO DEPRESSION stating, "Big Shoals should be in equal plane with the Isbells and Stapletons, it’s Americana’s Americana. " "They are the antithesis of all the current Americana bullshit." With thought provoking songs and melodies that stick in your head for days, they're an act that, should they come to your town, you surely don't want to miss.
