500 Miles to Memphis

An exercise in American Eclectic: gritty, dirty and damn good.

Independent Weekly

You never know when you might hear the music of 500 Miles to Memphis. Maybe in a honky tonk in Tennessee. Maybe at a Rock show in North Carolina. Maybe at a Punk festival in their hometown of Cincinnati. Maybe in an acoustic format at the corner bar or coffeeshop. Or maybe on MTV’s Nitro Circus, soundtracking some extreme sport stunts.

The band is comfortable in almost any setting, largely because their music — a mix of scrappy Country and scorching Rock & Roll — has a magnetic, wide appeal.

Band members are: Ryan Malott – vocals, guitars, banjo; Kevin Hogle – Drums; Noah Sugarman – guitars, vocals, piano; David Rhodes Brown – lap steel, guitar; Aaron Whalen – guitar, vocals

Find out more about Cincinnati’s 500 Miles to Memphis at their website or their Facebook Page. You also need to go purchase one of their 5 albums – they’ve been busy this year with 3 albums just released – at their BandCamp band page.
