Sometimes you need a friend to laugh with and sometimes you need a friend to cry with. The two-man band Sinners & Saints from Charlotte, North Carolina, fits the bill for both. Whether they’re crooning about heartbreak or tearing it up with joyful abandon, you’ll feel happier for having listened. Perry Fowler and Mark Baran infuse their acoustic, country-tinged tunes with compelling harmonies and foot-powered percussion on repurposed drums from an abandoned kit.

Since the band’s formation in 2011, Sinners & Saints has been gathering a following of fans who turn to their whiskey drinking, shit kickin’, sweet loving music for a good time but find something more – an irrepressible optimism even in dark times. We’re all sinners and we’re all saints, and we’re all in it together.

The band has shared the stage up and down the east coast with the likes of Flogging Molly, Shovels and Rope, Robert Earl Keen, Daniel Romano, St Paul & the Broken Bones, SUSTO, Sun Kil Moon, Bombadil, and many others.

Sinners & Saints is currently touring behind their second full-length album, On The Other Side, which was released in March of 2017 in partnership with Silent Uproar Records.

“The beloved Charlotte roots duo celebrates the release of its album On the Other Side, which wears its Southern country roots on its sleeve (so to speak). The album illustrates the group’s versatility, from foot-tapping bluegrass to tearful honky-tonk to harmony-centered folk. With its feet firmly planted in tradition, it should be as big a hit with the MerleFest crowd as it is with local hipsters.”                                                                                                                                         Charlotte Observer
“Sinners and Saints’ debut album Love and Misery is a little slice of Americana heaven. Sounding like the Avett Brothers in their heyday, Sinners and Saints embody what the genre should be. The album is a perfect blend of acoustic guitar, minimalistic percussion, upright bass, great harmonies, and lots and lots of banjo.”                                                                                        WLUR 91.5 FM

“The duo is led by singer-songwriter Perry Fowler, whose vocals have just the faintest hint of a more controlled, bluegrass-tinged Daniel Johnston.”                       Free Times
