29 Mules / Bio

"These Mules don’t have many rules, but here’s one they live by: Country is meant to be played loud, fast and hard. That’s the plan of attack for 29 Mules, a Los Angeles band known for their brash “garage country” sound...29 Mules plays hard-edged country that’s beloved by dancers, lurkers and elbow-benders alike."
- Bill Locey, Ventura Star (Aug 10, 2010)

"29 Mules are unabashedly ballsy and rowdy as f--k. The thing is, they actually write some f'ing good songs. They take their Texas roots seriously and their style is straight up country and ain't scared of it, but they bring a californiacated and hard punching twist to it. On the surface these guys appear to give less than a sh*t what anybody might think of them, but it doesn't take much digging to reveal the sensitive boys they really are."
- Eric Rasmussen, FarWest Almanac (May 09, 2009)

"...Only fate could be responsible for such chemistry — the result of which is balls-to-the-wall, boot-to-the-booty, hip-shakin’, rock solid, smart, sexy, badass country music. That’s not to say there isn’t the occasional sun-kissed ballad in the band’s 500-song repertoire, , but inasmuch as a country band can genuinely rock — 29 Mules does."
- Michel Cicero, Ventura Weekly (Aug 12, 2010)

The heart & soul of 29 MULES is songwriting duo, Casey Cannon & Xavier Gonzalez. Casey & Xavi met in Los Angeles while working at Guitar Center and instantly connected upon discovering they were both air force brats with roots in Texas and the wilds of the Mojave Desert. They grew up listening to Waylon, Willie and Johnny Cash, and after playing around in the rock and punk scenes, they have drifted back to their roots.
