The Band of Heathens


Everyone’s tags

More tags


The Band of Heathens are an Americana band from Austin, Texas.

The three principal songwriters - Colin Brooks, Ed Jurdi and Gordy Quist - shared the bill at Momo’s, an Austin club. Originally, each singer/songwriter performed his own set. However, they eventually started sharing the stage, and collaborating together with bassist Seth Whitney. The Wednesday night series was billed as “The Good Time Supper Club”. A misprint in a local paper billed the act as “The Heathens.” In 2007, drummer John Chipman joined the band.

In 2009, the band was nominated for a “New Emerging Artist” award by the Americana Music Association. In 2010, the band was again honored by the Americana Music Association as nominees for the “Best Duo/Group of the Year”.

    "Yesterday one of our musical heroes, a true American original, Levon Helm passed on. By some strange twist of cosmic fate, we were in his birth-state of Arkansas when we heard the news. There was some sort of comfort in knowing we were treading on the ground that sculpted the man and set him on the path to utter and complete righteousness. We wrote this song (direct DL >> ) right before our show in Little Rock last night to play during a mini-Levon tribute encore. This is a demo of the song as we recorded it in the parking lot. Although we'll never get to hear his voice in the present anymore, we are incredibly lucky to be able to be with our friend whenever our ears are open. Play us one more song cuz. Love, The Band of Heathens "

    The live sound engineer at a small venue in Nashville plays these guys a lot in between sets. 'What's this World' is a great tune!

    They truly have caught the essence of Texas in their music…I have caught them in concert several times and they always deliver, and leave you wanting more.
