Steeped in Vintage Blues and early Rock n’ Roll, the Weary Times have managed to carve out a sound that’s both nostalgic and refreshing. The Boise, Idaho based band is fronted by Michigan born signer songwriter Ryan Curtis and joined by Mike Simon on guitar, Mike Swain on keys, Nick Archibald on bass and Ben Wieland on drums. While operating in the structure and vintage tone of American Mid-Twentieth Century Music, the band’s melting pot of styles creates a truly unique sound of their own, while paying homage to their idols. You can hear the classic, but diverse influences of legendary bluesmen, hillbilly rock n’ rollers, street corner RnB crooners and sixties garage rockers throughout their songs.
A year in the making, the band is set to release their first record in the spring of 2019. Slow hand guitar licks, slap back vocals and whizzing Wurlitzer and Hammond B3 organ set the stage for a record stacked to brim something we used to call rock ‘n roll. Yep, good old fashion ROCK N’ ROLL!
