2/3 Goat (pronounced: Two-Thirds Goat)
is a champion of metrobilly music in New York City. Their album Stream of Conscience and their music video of the title track have gained them recognition & features from outlets such as The Huffington Post, AOL Music Homepage, and New York Music Daily, and others. They were seen performing at SXSW the last two years (2013, 2014) and were official artists at CMJ 2013. Last year, they were chosen as one of the top 10 bands out of over 3,500 in competition to perform in The Outlaw Roadshow at SXSW 2013 hosted by Adam Duritz of The Counting Crows and Ryan Spaulding of Ryan's Smashing Life. Fronted by lead singers Annalyse McCoy & Ryan Dunn, the band's melding of alt-country, bluesy bluegrass and classic rock echo the core members' diverse roots: Annalyse descended directly from the infamous McCoys of Eastern Kentucky, and Ryan deeply rooted in the beach culture of southern New Jersey.
In 2010, After winning the MR King Productions Singer-Songwriter Competition, the band released their first EP, Up The Mountain, recorded at Tainted Blue Studio (formerly the penthouse of Quad Studios) in Times Square with Patrick Shaw.
In 2011, Stream of Conscience was recorded in Nashville at Welcome to 1979 Studios with producer Chris Mara (Gin Blossoms, Rounder Records) on a restored MCI 2’ 24 track tape then mixed in pro-tools, giving the album an “old meets new Nashville” feel. The album features a 1947 crooner’s microphone in the track “Lay It on the Line,” and “Band of Gold” features prominent Nashville musician Russ Pahl on pedal steel. The console used to record Stream of Conscience is museum-worthy: a fully restored 1978 MCI JH428 originally owned by Country Music Hall of Famer Porter Wagoner (aka “Mr. Grand Ole Opry”).
On July 20th, 2014, 2/3 Goat released their latest single, "It's in the Blood," which is available digitally worldwide. The song was recorded at The Sanctuary in Nashville, and features guitarist Jesse Isley of Will Hoge's band.
