"Devils In My Head" went straight to the top of the Roots Rock Riot Show playlist. A classic Austin, Texas Shuffle with blazing geetars and ringing snare, it's sure to remain in the list for sometime to come. The second track "All Red" is equally funky with great vocals and modern production tones!" - Ally Lee - Lionheart Radio 107.3FM U.K.


"Chris Duarte... with a sledge hammer!" - Pacific Street Blues with Rick Galusha KIWR 89.7FM Omaha


"Disciples of Sound have a vibe that's currently pretty distinctive -- they mix Sabbath heft with old-school blues, all with a 90's grunge compression." - Big Wester Flavor

Bio

Imagine what it would sound like if Soundgarden, Black Sabbath, and Robert Johnson got together for a jam? Disciples Of Sound is turning heads in today's music world. It is clear that they have taken away from several generations of music from traditional blues to grunge, and others in between.

The band started as an idea that bassist/singer Buffalo had while playing in his former band, Indigenous. He had written some material before entering the studio for their 2006 release, but in the midst of those sessions, the once all family band of Nakota Sioux's from Marty, South Dakota split up. A year earlier, Buffalo had a met guitarist Nate Boff backstage at the Oklahoma Blues Festival while both of their bands at that time were there performing. By coincidence or fate, Nate's band also parted ways around the same time, so he and Buffalo decided to get together. Nate drove thirteen hours from his hometown of Defiance, Ohio to Buffalo's home in South Dakota to try out some ideas. They wrote two songs the first day and Disciples of Sound was born, and in search of a drummer.

Early on, Buffalo's sister, Wanbdi (Wan-buh-dee) and long-time friend, Kurt Olsen would occasionally get behind the drums to complete the trio for a number of shows and demo sessions. It wouldn't be until nearly two years later that Ed Miles, formerly of the Chris Duarte Group, would join the band after responding to a craigslist ad Nate had posted.

Before becoming Disciples of Sound; Buffalo, Nate, and Ed each had earned a stunning list of credits that they are continuing to build now. From a number of performances at Austin's own SXSW to appearances on the Experience Hendrix Tour, Late Night with Conan O'Brien, and Woodstock '99 to name a few. Not to mention, sharing stages and tours with names like BB King, the late John Lee Hooker, Dave Matthews Band, Carlos Santana, John Mayer, Los Lonely Boys, Jackson Browne, and Buddy Guy.

July of 2009 would mark the band's debut EP release entitled "Devils In My Head," named after the title track that pays tribute to the blues legend, Robert Johnson. It was recorded by the band at Buffalo's mom's cabin, in a secluded valley in South Dakota, with the help of their friend Jesse Davey, who has also worked with Mick Jagger, Papa Roach, Dave Stewart, Indigenous, and The Davey Brothers. Currently DOS is building a large repertoire of original material and constantly recording demos, while regularly playing shows in the live music capital.
