Greg Spradlin Outfit mine the hills and Delta landscape of the Mid-South to create a rich sonic tapestry reminiscent of the musical legacy born of the land they inhabit. Arkansas natives Greg Spradlin (guitar and vocals), Doug Simpson (drums and vocals) and Scott Finney (bass and vocals), reach back into their musical pockets to unite the sounds of country church, Delta Blues, honky-tonk and bar room rock and bring them into the 21st Century.
Spradlin and Simpson are former members of The SkeeterHawks, whose first album The First One I Caught has become a much sought-after favorite among fans. After releasing the now out-of-print debut album, the band was signed to San Francisco's Synapse Records. The un-released album was produced by Dusty Wakeman (Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakum, Rosie Flores, Jim Lauderdale etc.).
Since disbanding the SkeeterHawks, Greg Spradlin formed The Band of Imperials with David Hidalgo (Los Lobos) and Pete Thomas (Elvis Costello) and his songs have been covered two albums by the late producer/artist extraordinaire Jim Dickinson. Greg has also been featured on Jackass Records nationwide alt-country compilation, for which the LA Times called Greg Spradlin, "...the most impressive."
Once a part of the early No Depression-alt-country movement, Greg Spradlin Outfit is a departure to a more turbo-charged, gritty, lo-fi visit to the Southern Gothic universe.
