Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, Michigan Rattlers play heavy-hearted folk-rock with an aching dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young (guitar), Adam Reed (upright bass), and Christian Wilder (piano) began writing music and performing together in their Northern Michigan high school.
In September 2017, Pianist Christian Wilder was added to the band’s lineup. Now a trio, the group headed into the studio to record their EP, Wasting the Meaning. Comprised of three cover songs, the project was conceived as a way to explore deeper into the recording process and pay homage to some of their favorite songwriters.
Their latest project, released on September 28th, Evergreen is a testament to the magnetic natural charisma and impressive musical instincts that the Petoskey-natives have worked tirelessly to perfect after a whirlwind couple of years. They’ve been compared to Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Drive By Truckers, Jason Isbell, Sturgill Simpson and more.
Their explosive co-headlining tour with The Lil’ Smokies comes to Nashville on February 9th for a show at The High Watt.
