Wind, Water, Waves 



The Old Spirits are an original rock and roll band based in Tennessee.  Winners of the Tennessee Music Awards Americana Band of the Year (2017), The Old Spirits bring soulful, '70's-style psychedelic rock and deliver it authentically.

On their new album, "Wind, Water, Waves" (released April 2019), The Old Spirits bring heavy, guitar-driven rock and pair it with ferocious vocals.  The originality of the album radiates with well thought out lyrics that ramble on with the audience well past the first listen.
