Biography

They came from Michigan, Delaware & Louisiana during the great Atlanta migration. They can't remember who met who first, but sometime long ago, perhaps at a party, there might have been a basketball involved, a bottle of vodka, a pitcher of margaritas, Guns 'n Roses in the Little 5 Points Bazaar... The details are a little fuzzy. But somehow they all met and sometime after that, music was made. Linda and Sonia played together in a Go-Go's cover band, Linda and Lee played together in Michelle Malone's band & Lee and Sonia played together in STB.

There were other bands, of course. Sonia toured for a few years with Cowboy Mouth and fronted STB, Lee toured for a few years with Moanin Malone and played with the Little Bobby Taylors & Shrunken Head and Linda also toured with Michelle Malone and played with Elroy's Big Machine & Straw Village. But in due course, the time was ripe for the three friends to get together and kick it.

And so, HERMAN PUT DOWN THE GUN, was born in December 2007.

HERMAN is a band based on songs and the swelling sounds that bring them to life; harmony, melody, the sweet soul, the rock edge. The band can sound like Led Zepplin one moment and the ghost of Jim White the next. From post-punk to americana and everything in between, HERMAN is not afraid to explore all the shades, trade instruments, swap songs, mix it up, make it up, whatever will keep the heart pounding, the body moving and the music taking hold.
