"Welcome to Deep Ellum" Royal Oakie Records-Summer 2012
4 song ep available on CD, Digital, and Deluxe AAA 45 rpm 12" Vinyl



Deep Ellum plays a homespun brand of soulful Americana that they like to call bootcut boogie, cosmic country, and roadhouse rock n’roll. Fronted by singer-songwriter David Glasebrook, the group evokes Tony Joe White and Creedence Clearwater Revival, Graham Parsons and The Flying Burrito Brothers, Crazy Horse and The Band, Townes Van Zandt and Kris Kristofferson, Stax and Excello.

But what do they sound like? Deep Ellum sounds like the lazy Mississippi slowly rollin’ by on a southern summer afternoon; like the locusts singing at the close of a long day; like a stone-cold trucker barreling down the highway at 110; like a lonesome drifter wailing on his harmonica; like car wheels on a gravel road.

Since playing their first show in May 2011, a sold-out show in their hometown of Santa Cruz, Ca, the band has performed regularly, sharing stages with Howlin Rain, Vetiver, Fruit Bats, Moondoggies, Magic Trick, The Romany Rye, The White Buffalo, Art Museums, The Parson Red Heads, and others. The band is eagerly anticipating the release of their debut ep “Welcome to Deep Ellum” in late summer 2012 and a co-headlining tour with goods friends and fellow Californians Sparrow’s Gate in fall of 2012.
