Willie and the Hand Factory / Bio

As a band, Willie and the Hand Factory, exists somewhere in the space between rock n roll and country music. Someplace near Gram Parsons and the Band. There's a haunting distant remnant of Billy Redden's banjo and some Chattooga river mud in there. Maybe it's country music with a brain. It kinda like garage rock because Bill was in the Fungos, the ultimate garage experience. Maybe it's got a tinge of gospel too, Willie and the Hand Factory are Southern because they all grew up listening to Lyrnyrd Skynyrd and the The Allman Brothers. They come from Enigma, Ga. and humble beginnings. They grew up near each other on the wrong side of the tracks out where the ironweeds grow. Car rusted quietly in the front yard and the porch always needed a coat of paint. Listen intently to the songs and see if you hear a distant train.
The band is now ready to rock!
