    DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS + The McCoy Tyler Band Moe's Alley presents DEAD WINTER CARPENTERS & special guests THE MCCOY TYLER BAND for an evening of Americana & Roots music.According to local lore, tucked deep in the snow blanketed Sierra Nevada mountains, rests a cabin secluded from the masses. After days of searching the shores of Lake Tahoe, I find a path of footsteps in the snow that winds through the moss laden trees of the forest. After hours trudging through knee-deep snow, I find myself gazing at cabin where smoke is billowing from the chimney. To learn of what is inside, I crawl up to the window. As I wipe away the snow for a closer look, I find the crew consumed by their cause of crafting melodies and songs that warms the entire cabin. Here lies the heart and soul of Dead Winter Carpenters In a time when music has been transformed and genre lines are left behind like the seasons, Dead Winter Carpenters are producing an ever-evolving style of music. The time spent, both in the studio in the woods and criss-crossing the American countryside, has provided Dead Winter Carpenters with a ground-breaking sound that blends Americana roots-rock with a tinge of straightforward tell-it-like-it-is Alt. Country that is as hard-hitting as it is whimsical. While the roadsigns and towns pass by the windows on down the highway of tour, DWC are writing original material based on their life experiences. Dirt Nap, the bands latest EP, is a musical journey which speaks magnitudes to these experiences. The uplifting Bootleg Jack melds together banjo, handclaps, harmonica and fiddle into a musical amassment of down-home experiences of whiskey riddled fun. The stormy, somber, and longing tone of West Shore Town speaks to the darker side of existence. Conversely, the upbeat rambling sounds of the the telecaster and the lyrics of Triumph speak of man living with hard times who sees the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel. One cant help but feel the change of the alchemy brewing within Dead Winter Carpenters. Foot-stomping original tunes blended with the bands onstage presence highlighted by the vocal melodies and five part harmonies, ferocious fluidity of the fiddle, deep pounding thump and thud of the upright bass, country ramblings of the telecaster and acoustic guitars, and the driving drums all meld together to create an experience that is sure leave you wanting more The five piece outfit is: Jenni Charles -fiddler/vocalist Dave Lockhart -upright bassist/vocalist Jesse Dunn -rhythm guitarist/vocalist Bryan Daines -lead guitarist/vocalist Brian Huston -drummer/vocalist
