Bums Lie / Bio

Bums Lie is a band that was started out of a love for music that not only makes you feel good, but also leaves the listener with a sense of substance. Bums Lie was took shape and four friends were brought together armed with a Urban reggae sound and a punk attitude. Within a year and a half Bums Lie was opening for reggae legends Culture, and shortly thereafter released their underground classic album First Time Offender. Bums Lie has since opened up for Grammy award winning artist Damien Marley at The Music Farm in Charleston, SC, and Yellowman at Ziggy's in Winston Salem, NC. May 26th 2007 marked the day that Bums Lie released "Why Lie It's For Beer" with Rob Tavaglione at Catalyst, the album went on to get air play at 106.5 The End, and put Bums Lie on the map.

In 2008. The Bums recorded a live album at the Visulite Theater in May entitled "Stumbling, and Mumbling", and promoted it on 10.65 The End with live on air performances. Bums Lie ran into King Django, who has played with Rancid, The Slackers, and The Stubborn Allstars, and gave him s CD. Django like it and put us on his label Stubborn Record. Bums Lie went up to New York City this past summer, and did a show with King Django at The Kniting Factory. We all had a great time, and now we are back in the Queen City trying to spread the lies.

You can always find us at your local bar.

In 2009 Bums Lie has been mixing down their new live album "Stumbling and Mumbling", and playing shows around the area. "Stumbling and Mumbling" was recorded one drunken night at The Visulite Theater in Charlotte, NC, and the crowd was fantastic. We had a great time making the album, and now everyone can feel the excitement of a live Bums Lie Show.

In 2011 Bums Lie has been working hard in the Studio and have a new song Uptown that is quickly gain popularity
