Waylon Speed is the convergence of four musicians from Burlington, Vermont, bringing their unstoppable no frills country-metal blend of rock to a rapidly growing horde of devoted fans nationwide. The formation of this band could not have come at a better time. Seemingly overnight, they have become a staple in the music community, equipped with a full pallet of all original music. Since their formation in April 2009, Waylon Speed has been touring extensively and picking up new fans like truck tires pick up mud. Catch them on tour near you in support of their debut release, Georgia Overdrive, (in stores April 2010). Members have shared bills with national touring acts such as Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Little Feat, Blues Traveler, My Morning Jacket, Junior Brown, Del McCoury, and Les Claypool. With relentless determination and driven positive attitudes, Waylon Speed is setting the bar for originality and genre-stepping with a firm rooted belief that live music has been, still is, and will always remain alive and well worldwide. “Gas on the fire of the current music scene”, “Heavier than a pile of bricks” and “More country than a spur on your cowboy boot” to name just a few things being said to describe this perfectly formulated foundation of true brotherhood known as Waylon Speed.
“Damn Fine Work!!” -Fred Tackett, (Little Feat)
