"Southern Music Scene"

As a music lover I find myself categorizing music into three levels. One – I hear a song that I immediately like. Problem with this is that after about twenty listens the song loses its hold on my interest and I either never listen to it again or only on rare occasions.
Two – I hear a song and there is no instant liking or disliking, it is just a song. This category I go through my five listens theory. If five listens go by and I still do not like the song the song it is transferred to category three. Yet if the songs grab me more and more with each listen until I love the song then it will be apart of my play list forever.
Three – If test two fails then the song is not listened to again.

Prophets and Outlaws a Dallas based blues band has without a doubt been classified in category two. I originally went for the five song listen and they passed. In fact after the five song listen I kept the stream going for the rest of the night while I did other things around the office and found myself singing along with the lyrics.

Soul Shop is a classic sounding rhythm and blues/soul song.

Honey Child is a straight rocking blues song that keeps you wanting to dance and move.

Finally Alone a great slow song that makes you want to grab your girl and just hold her tightly on the dance floor.

Sweet Soft Southern Smile is a great love story that I could actually here in a movie soundtrack.

Leave the lights on is another great love reunion song. Of all the songs on this EP I would say this is the closest they come to a true Texas country song.

Over all the Prophets and Outlaws EP is a great listen. The songs have great messages. The musicians know there craft and deliver their parts with great passion. Matt Boggs sings with a wisdom and vocal presence that you would expect from and older blues man. This young man can belt it out. The harmonies are spectacular on this EP. In future songs I would love to hear some Hammond B3 organ solos but what they are doing is spot on. I would recommend this EP to everyone and if you find yourself close go see a show.

"99.9 KMOO"

Prophets and Outlaws have rocked East Texas with their southern roots and country flare. Their ability to blend rock and roll and keep the attention of avid country listeners has deemed them very attractive from a programming standpoint. Since their music has been introduced to our listeners we have received positive feedback and requests for LIVE shows. Having witnessed multiple LIVE performances I believe PAO would be a perfect fit for the upcoming tour. The professionalism demonstrated by the band in business discussions, as well as interviews and promos, has been impressive to say the least. Their dedication to music and passion to perform amplifies with their music. - Clayton Neville - Morning Crew

"Adairs Saloon- Dallas, TX"

It’s is a rare experience for a venue owner to hit the trifecta when it comes to bands. What is the
trifecta you ask? It is the combination of quality product(the music), NON rockstar attitude, and a crowd
that comes ready to dance, drink and have a good time. This is exactly what you get from Prophets and
Outlaws each and every time. In our time working together they bring the same thing every time—great,
high energy show, musicianship and professionalism, and a drinking crowd with plenty of beautiful
women! I highly recommend that everyone experience the gritty/rootsy/Americana goodness that is
Prophets & Outlaws, I guarantee they will not disappoint.

"Wolf Radio 99.5 loves PAO"

“Prophets and Outlaws are a blues/rock band verging on the cusp of contemporary with their sing-a-long choruses and catchy lyrics. The perfect jam band for a crowded bar, an outdoor summer venue or a long car drive. Their bluesy guitar riffs combined with their homegrown lyrical approach create a unique combination. Imagine combining the instrumental stylings of John Mayer with the carefree lyrics of Jerrod Neiman and what you come out with is the blues southern rock mixture of PAO. It is also worthy to note that in addition to his unique vocal style, front man Matt Boggs keeps the ladies swooning with his charming smile and electric stage presence. But looks can be deceiving, while their members may look young, their music holds a lot of character and soul. Their single “Soul Shop” is a perfect example of their ability to infuse soul into a contemporary chorus, which, like any great radio hit, will resonate in your head all day long. ”

"House of Blues loves PAO"

"Prophets and Outlaws are one of the most exciting up and coming bands in Dallas. Their live performance has everything you could want: soulful solos, perfect harmonies, and energy that takes command of any room. With a set list that takes you from Old Crow Medicine Show to Tracy Chapman to the fan favorite original "Soul Shop", this is a show you can't afford to miss."

Prophet and Outlaws - EP 2011



Prophets and Outlaws is a Southern Rock band with soul. They have developed a sound that ties their passion for the Blues while embracing their Country roots and celebrating the people that paved the way. You can find elements of the old "outlaw" music in their attitude and in the way they push the boundaries of today’s music.

It was in high school after hearing a rendition of “Why Georgia,” performed by James and Steven Guckenheimer that Matt Boggs searched out Steven in the band hall to ask him to become his guitarist. This was the beginning of a lasting kinship.

Steven and Matt played shows as the Matt Boggs Band was building up a following throughout Texas and Oklahoma, while James and Steven joined forces with Matt Murrow and Benji Harris in a band called Rigby, which found a regional fan base performing their original music.

Following college Rigby had the opportunity to become the opening and backing band for Matt Boggs after he had been a finalist on CMT's Can You Duet. They knew from the first song that there was something remarkable in the mix. At that very moment the two bands decided to join forces to create a super group now known as Prophets and Outlaws.
