Me and the Devil / Press

"With their loud hodgepodge of southern music, ramshackle blues and what Kelsay calls “alternative Americana,” and with Daughtry’s history in hardcore punk giving the vocals a kind of gritty, shouted immediacy, the band’s shows end up genuine local phenomena."

"...every show Me and the Devil plays seems a packed house, no matter how many people are actually there. At once intimate and all-inclusive, their shows become a kind of conversation between the audience and the guys onstage, until it ends — typically with their popular, cathartic 'Drink, Smoke, Laugh, Sing '— with the line between the two all but snapping, when the audience can barely even hear the instruments anymore over the sound of their own singing."
