FULL BAND SHOW, the official pre-party before the 8th Annual Meltdown Vintage Motorcycle Show on the 27th.

Morgan Geer, the songwriter behind Drunken Prayer, is the current guitar player for iconic alt-country goths, Freakwater. He’s recently been touring internationally solo with The Handsome Family.

Morgan was born in San Francisco and grew up traveling around the US, following his folk-singing mother. Today he splits time between Portland, OR and Asheville, NC. He’s lived in nearly every region of the country and sounds like it. His is American music – straight, no irony chaser.

Drunken Prayer will likely bring to mind The Band for a lot of listeners, with the sense of place and history. But Morgan Geer’s songs and his singing often suggest a kinship with artists like Bobby Charles or Doug Sahm, musicians with Southern roots, with a yip and break to their voices, and notes of sadness offset by a wicked sense of humor.

Over the past two years Drunken Prayer has played hundreds of shows across 18 countries and across the US at venues such as the Pickathon Music Festival and San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall. Geer’s music has been featured on AMC, NPR, WFMU and SiriusXM.

The new Drunken Prayer album, Cordelia Elsewhere, was mixed by Mitch Easter (Let’s Active, REM) at The Fidelitorium in rural North Carolina. A maverick descendant of outlaw country, this album bears witness to life on earth in uncertain times.
