Will Griffith, known musically as The Great Dying, is a Mississippi Delta born, country singer-songwriter residing in Oxford, MS. Although Will doesn’t see his dark country musings as directly blues influenced. “I want people to celebrate sad music because of its beauty. Sad songs help you laugh at your own sadness. They are meant to help you keep going,” says Griffith. Punk rock, however, felt like Will’s blues and was devoid of the phoniness and commercialism that drove tourism in the area surrounding his hometown of Cleveland, MS.
The Williamson Brothers consist of Blake and Adam Williamson (Lee Bains III & the Glory Fires) with Matt Patton (Drive By Truckers, Dexateens) on bass.
