Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash
Described by Rolling Stone as "pure Americana heart and soul", The Bastard Sons of Johnny Cash are the voice and vision of songwriter Mark Stuart. Since forming the band in 1995, he's performed with most every major artist in the Country and Americana music community. Stuart was personally given permission to use the band's name by Johnny Cash himself.
“Pure Americana heart and soul…heavy, toe-tapping shuffle rhythms, adroit and stylish steel picking, and guitar work that approximates a train chooglin' down the track full steam ahead.” - Rolling Stone
“Makes you remember why you liked Merle Haggard, Waylon Jennings and Marty Robbins, not to mention Bastard Sons’ adopted dad.” - New York Post
“Captures the lonesomeness of Cash, the stripped-down melodies of Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen, the rowdiness of Steve Earle and morphs them into a captivating collection that blends twang and sophistication.” - Billboard
