The Last Straw
Definition: The last of a series of annoyances or disappointments that leads one to a final loss of patience, temper, trust or hope.
Five men, from different musical backgrounds, combine the influences of their past and their vision of the future to create a sound so unique, yet so recognizable, that it can be mistaken as nothing but The Last Straw. Screaming riffs, impeccable percussion, roaring slide guitar, groovy bass, and the sensation of the perfect organ notes fill the sound that becomes so easily familiar. Songs like “Rock N’ Roll Queen,” and “She Don’t Love You” are reminiscent of some of The Last Straw’s greatest influences; such as The Black Crowes, The Allman Brothers, and The Beatles.
23-year-old Kyle Daniel’s lyrics scream blues, soul, and rock with the power of a voice far beyond his years. Quincey Meeks’ notes stream from his amplifier in perfect accompaniment, while Marc Williams keeps the bass line fresh for every song. Pearce Harrison marks the beat with his well timed thunder, and Adam Botner provides the perfect amount of funk and soul as he pounds the ivory. Not often is it that you find something that is so fresh, unique, and new wrapped up in a sound that pleases your senses like The Last Straw.
On stage they go huge on songs like “Down the Line” and “Take a Ride,” and blend covers from the Grateful Dead to Rage Against the Machine into their originals. They’ve performed in both festival and concert format, and their long list of accomplishments include: Forecastle Festival 2009, Head Jamz Festival 2010, and opening for Blues Traveler, Foghat, and Drive-By Truckers. They’re a powerhouse in Middle Tennessee, and recognized throughout the Southeast as one of the best progressive southern rock bands touring today. They’ve received great accolades and multiple awards. Their work ethic and dedication to the music is taking them places…..and fast.
