Saints and Sinners are a country-rock band that hails
from Texas. They are the first really radio-ready new
country-rock band I have heard in a long time. You can
hear this in "Being and Believing". Good lyrics and
tight production. Their influences include such cool
songsters as Bob Dylan, Willie Nelson, The Refreshments
and Tom Petty. "As Common as Flies on Carrion," might
have a weird title, but is very downloadable.
They pride themselves on not writing trite love songs.
Rather, they delve into greed, hypocrisy and regrets…
and I for one, am glad.

Lewisville band delivers honest, heartfelt folk-rock
simplicity. Indie folk rock. Well thought out, but not
overthought.

Saints and Sinners plays country music like a band that’s been through the wringer of rock music and has moved onto country. The Lewisville-based band marks the release of its self-titled album with a free show Friday night.

Low-key and laid-back, the Lewisville-based band’s bright, bell-like guitar sounds and upbeat tempos contrast with dark lyrics. The singer’s raw voice sounds weary and real, paired with lines like “You can wait here to die, but you can’t call this a home,” and “Give yourself a pat on the back, you had a decent run/Now we’re feeling kind of numb/All hope is gone.” - Denton Record Chronicle

Bio

Our name comes from a line in one of our songs. In it, a man has
committed suicide and in the moments before he dies he is
reflecting upon his life. The line is: “Saints and sinners alike
are remorseful and contrite when they’re beyond repair.” I think
that this line encompasses just about everything that we’re
about.

We don’t write love songs. You won’t hear us talk much about
broken hearts or newfound romance. Because…well, who really
cares? It might be easier to shy away from subject matter like
religion or politics. After all, the trite and the trivial have
always made for songs that the listening public readily accepts
with enthusiasm. But that is exactly why we have to write these
songs; because it’s not about money or notoriety. I think that
if we could write one song that would make people realize how
insignificant we are or how unlikely it is that we are on this
planet; that if we could somehow cause someone to be a little
more compassionate, a little more understanding, a little more
accepting—that no amount of poverty or destitute will have
rendered our efforts futile.

So if you are looking to hear stories of disconsolate lovers
you’re wasting your time here. What you will hear are songs
about regrets, and about disgust, and about the absurdity of our
existence; about greed and hypocrisy in ourselves and in our
leaders; about our strengths and weaknesses; our vices and our
virtues; songs ultimately about what it means to be human.
