Award-winning Austin rock and roll stalwarts, The Band of Heathens, has enjoyed sustained success for more than a decade, racking up 10 albums and over twelve hundred performances in thirteen countries. Founding members Gordy Quist and Ed Jurdi first came together in 2005, and were joined by Trevor Nealon on keys in 2009 and Richard Millsap on drums in 2012. Bassist Jesse Wilson came on board in 2017.
Between 2008 and 2018, The Band of Heathens released two live albums and six studio albums, four of which went to either #1 or #2 on the Americana Radio Albums Chart, and earned a pair of Americana Music Awards nominations. Then in 2020, they released the acclaimed Stranger which Rolling Stone called a “perfectly curated mix tape of sinewy Rolling Stones rockers, aching Eagles ballads, and Gram Parsons weepers.”
