Biography

The Dirty Streets are a young band from the Memphis area who have no fear of bathing in their proto-punk and soul roots. Their album Portrait of a Man is an obvious product of digging on the likes of MC5, Rolling Stones, James Brown, Cactus, Humble Pie & the Faces.

"Portrait of a Man is a straight classic-rock facsimile, but played with such energy, enthusiasm, and skill that the band makes this more-generalized sound their own……..the rough, menacing guitar tone is matched by vocals that growl and bark beyond their age." - Chris Herrington (Memphis Flyer)

"The first truly great "new" band to emerge from the Memphis scene in recent memory, this trio of teen and twenty-somethings conjure a mass of thick riffs and a hearty retro rumble…" -Bob Mehr (Go Memphis)

"The band breathes new life into old tropes, and makes you admit how much you deep down love the sound of a guitar being strangled to within an inch of its life." - Chris McCoy (Live from Memphis)
