Bio

The Gun Street Girls formed in Summer 2005, as a backup band to tour with songwriter Cary Ann Hearst. Stradling the line between country and rock-n-roll, their sound is reminiscent of Harvest-era Neil Young, Jack White-era Loretta Lynn, with deference to the punks and the southern preachers. The songs on Hearst's latest work, Dust and Bones, are a collection of warm, earnest vignettes about sordid family history, back country mythology and romances tattered and redeemed. Cary Ann Hearst first found the Gun Street Girls living in various conditions of squalor in the dilapidated neighborhoods of Charleston, SC in the early months of Summer. Once the temperature reached 120 degrees, and it was too hot to run away from their taunting threats, Hearst surrendered her wallet and the last half of her bologna sandwich to the Girls, and waited to succumb to their suspected cannibalism. Alas, it was too hot to eat. As they sat baking in the shade that day, they found in common a lust for heartbreak and a lack of transportation. Following the theft of their last handle of Evan Williams, they learned to play instruments salvaged from the post-industrial wasteland beside the Cooper River. By the time September rolled around, the Gun Street Girls were finally well fed, well rehearsed and ready to pursue a career beyond mere street thuggery and low brow seduction. This is their offer....come to their show, listen to the song they sing, don't steal anything from them, nor lay a threatening hand on any one of them, and they promise to let you pass by in peace.
