We’re awfully proud to announce the addition of Oxford/Corinth, Mississippi’s own The Holy Ghost Electric Show to the This Is American Music family.  ”The Great American Holy Ghost Electric Show” is coming out August 12th TIAM, Itunes, Amazon, etc.  CD / Digital…

Corinth is in northeast Mississippi. It is not in the famed Delta. It is not on the redneck riviera of the gulf coast. It is nestled in the hills that will become the mountains. It is of the land Mississippi Fred McDowell and the Hill Country bluesmen R.L. Burnside and Junior Kimbrough sprouted roots. It is the big bright buckle of America’s Bible Belt and it is the original home of Holy Ghost Electric Show. Depending on what you would imagine the sons of preachers playing rock music in Corinth would sound like, HGES sounds exactly what you imagine…or nothing like it. Brothers Cody (songwriter, lead vocals, rhythm guitar) and Jake Rogers (guitar and banjo), Will Shirley (guitar), Conner Wroten (bass), Austin Wheeler (drums) and Jesse James (trombone and keys), have created by way of their debut, THE GREAT AMERICAN, an album that speaks well beyond their years (the band has a median age of 22 years.)
The brothers Rogers were raised with issues of religion, race and moral equivocation worn on sleeves…not hidden or neglected in favor of more polite conversation. Their father started a church designed to bring rival gang members into the same building to worship together. This was their childhood. Cody’s songs bear this out. Touching on these subjects and many others of both the personal and global variety, he weaves word and sound into anthems of triumph and wonderment. Musically, the band utilizes country and folk rhythms but indulges rock ‘n roll and noise rock, recalling influences as disparate as Topanga Canyon and the Elephant 6 Collective. As Rogers says, “America’s a melting pot, and our music is the same way.” That fact is due, in part, to the fact that the band began to take its current form in the friendly college town of nearby Oxford, Mississippi…home of the Ole Miss Rebels, Fat Possum Records, John Currence, the Taylor Grocery and a musical culture and lineage that would make any big city jealous. It was in Oxford that HGES hones its sound and began to start winning over audiences. Whether standing atop tables at Proud Larry’s or playing Fringefest at the Powerhouse Community Arts Center, Holy Ghost is steadily working and steadily welcoming more and more fans to the fold.
Honestly, there are two Holy Ghost Electric Shows. There is the band you listen to late at night on your headphones and there is the band you see whipping crowds into a frenzy and leaving nothing on the stage. HGES does an amazing job of taking the songs from their debut (as well as a few choice covers and new songs) and giving them room to erup live. Guitars are being traded…trombones marching through crowds…drum sets crashed…everyone is screaming…it’s rock and roll and it’s hot and it’s sweaty and it’s the Electric Show, to which audiences from all over the Magnolia State will testify. Preach.
