The motivation of The Beggars' Guild is simple:
To write, record and perform songs that people love. They've only just begun.
Formed in 2006, this Atlanta/Athens, GA band draws from classic influences such as Tom Petty and The Heartbreakers, Johnny Cash, The Rolling Stones, and Bruce Springsteen, as well as more recent songsmiths like The Replacements, Counting Crows, Del Amitri, and Pedro The Lion. The Beggars' Guild blends elements of rock, blues, country, folk and pop into tunes that are honest, catchy and distinctly likeable.
Their debut EP, "Breaking Me Down", released on the Favorite Gentlemen imprint (Manchester Orchestra) features a strong collection of songs ranging from the Roots/pop "Minnesota" and the title track, to the haunting, folk/country gem "21", and the driving rock of "Old Town".
The Beggars' Guild plays American rock without pretense. Great songs, great players, and an honest voice.
