Dertybird from Austin, Texas has been cultivating their mix of Muscle Shoals Soul and Hill Country/Swamp Blues into a new blend of Southern Vinyl Rock. Dertybird is Clayton Colvin and JT Holt. The two were brought together in 2006 through the mutual company of Malcolm "Papa Mali" Welbourne. After many tough nights on the road and getting a few good breaks by playing alongside and opening for more well known acts, the young group earned loyal fans and began to impress many folks with their tight arrangements and tasteful Southern Rock sound. Trademarked by solid gutsy vocals and searing slide guitar, Dertybird branded themselves a staple in markets throughout the Southern US.
