“The Dirt Daubers were formed by Legendary Shack Shakers front man, artist, director and country punk pioneer J.D. Wilkes in 2009 with his wife Jessica. Wilkes’ “gothic preacher” persona and frantic blues harmonica whips ‘Wild Moon’ into a frenzy, trading lead vocal duties with his feminine foil. J.D. and Jessica are joined by electric guitarist Rod Hamdallah and drummer Preston Corn. Smoky baritone sax grooves are provided by Tom Waits’ sideman Ralph Carney, with piano played by Wilkes himself – delving deeper into the bluesy recesses of American music. Jessica emotes pained lyrics about life, love and loss on tunes like “No More My Love” and “Apples and Oranges,” while J.D. continues his southern storytelling style on “Angel Crown” and the title track. Says J.D., “The band might have come “down from the mountain” (only to land square in the Mississippi Delta!) but the heart and soul of the Dirt Daubers remain intact.” © the Dirty Daubers
