ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The Meeks Family is an Atlanta-based Indie Folk/Country band that formed in the winter of 2008 when Brooks Meeks, formerly of The Close, and Jonathan Bradley, formerly of Iron and Wine, began fleshing out rough demos Meeks recorded in his home studio. After a first show as a duo Johnny Kral, ex The Hiss, joined up on bass. Influences include Lee Hazlewood, Johnny Cash, and Neko Case. Meeks Family recordings feature intricate instrumentation, dark subject matters and a stately southern sound. The guitars and drums are beautifully lush and easy going with plenty of Hammond organ swirling in and out. Did I mention tons of classic plate reverb?

The Meeks Family’s first 7″ was released by the Moodswing label and includes a cover of Nick Cave’s The Weeping Song, a duet featuring Atlanta crooner/troublemaker Tom Cheshire (The Rent Boys, All Night Drug Prowling Wolves, West End Motel,) and Meeks’ own The Deuce of Clubs.

Thirty One Years of Lullaby, the band’s first full-length, was released March 20, 2010, at the Highland Inn Ballroom. Highlights include the haunting Tower of Envy with its beautiful Nashville guitar finger picking, as well as a Nancy Sinatra-esque duet with former The Close band-mate Theresa Fedor.
