LET THE DEVIL WIN finds THE WALCOTTS planting one foot in the rootsy terrain of their influences and the other pointing toward the future. Armed with a large line-up, their sound is fueled by male-female vocal harmonies with the accompaniment of horns, pedal-steel, fiddle, and piano.With songs recorded at the legendary FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama and Rami Jaffee's (The Wallflowers/Foo Fighters) private Fonogenic Studios in Los Angeles along with a co-written song with John Alagia--known for his work with Dave Matthews Band and John Mayer--the sound is unmistakably WALCOTTS: both familiar and fresh, old and new, fine-tuned and broadly appealing.
Formed in 2012, THE WALCOTTS began spreading their music through multiple TV and film placements, while also earning a well-deserved rep as a powerful live act (with personnel growing as large as nine players on stage). They've opened dates for Steve Winwood, Chris Isaak and Honeyhoney before landing the above-mentioned Chris Stapleton West Coast tour. Live, THE WALCOTTS bring the nuances of their recorded material to life with every show--including recent gigs alongside LeeAnn Womack, Lindi Ortega, Kate Voegele and Men at Work's Colin Hay--building upward toward an explosion of horns, organ, guitar and dual vocals.
