Pie-Eyed Preachers / Bio

Pie-Eyed Preachers is an Americana/Irish Rock band out of Philadelphia, PA. A band with deep roots in Irish traditional music, this is music for those who work hard and play hard. Their sound is a striking mix of raw strength and alluring harmonies.

"In a world of fakers, posers and wanna-be's no one is more authentic than Matt and company, Pie-Eyed Preachers are The Real Deal!"
~Pete Jamestone of the Rebel Surfers.

Original member Matt B's voice was made for singing the stories of the traditional Irish music that fuel their set list and if you think the talent stops there, you're sorely mistaken. Matt's guitar skills compliment the perfect foundation laid by drummer Whitey Ellis. Add Annette Williams' powerfully, captivating vocals and you know this is not your average band making background noise in the back of the pub. With a decades of experience between them, Pie-Eyed Preachers know how to put on a show. They will soon be releasing their debut album called "Bonesetter" recorded in Nashville, TN.

One question everyone seems to ask is how they got the name Pie-Eyed Preachers. Well, Matt and his buddy walk into a bar. Everyone is drinking and serious about giving each other the advice of a lifetime. Matt turns and says, "what a bunch of Pie-Eyed Preachers!" ...care to throw back a few and join the congregation?
