CHARLOTTE-BASED DUO SINNERS & SAINTS ANNOUNCE 2017 WINTER TOUR

CHARLOTTE, NC–November 6, 2018–Acoustic duo Sinners & Saints will launch their winter tour on November 30th in Athens, Georgia, in support of their latest full-length CD, On The Other Side, which was released in March of 2017 to rave reviews!

Sinners & Saints hail from Charlotte, North Carolina, and is comprised of multi-instrumentalists Perry Fowler on lead vocals, acoustic guitar, harmonica and kick drum, and Mark Baran on upright bass, banjo, kick drum and harmonies.  With their use of multiple instruments and perfect harmonies, they create a big sound for a two man band. The duo has shared the stage up and down the East Coast with the likes of Flogging MollyShovels and RopeRobert Earl KeenDexter RomweberSt Paul & the Broken Bones, and many others.

Since the band’s formation in 2011, Sinners & Saints has been gathering a following of fans who turn to their whiskey drinking, sweet loving music for a good time but find something more – an irrepressible optimism even in dark times. Whether they’re crooning about heartbreak or tearing it up with joyful abandon, their acoustic, country-tinged tunes with compelling harmonies appeal to fans of classic country artists such as The Louvin Brothers to modern day Americana bands such as The Avett Brothers and Drive-By Truckers.

Sinners & Saints has released 2 EPs and 2 full-length albums, including On The Other Side.   The Charlotte Observer said, “On the Other Side, 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.
