Low Cut Connie
Low Cut Connie plays true, gut-bucket, tear-jerkin', piano-pounding rock n roll. They shot to national prominence in 2011 when their debut record, Get Out the Lotion, was hailed by critics across the US as one of the best albums of the year. Rolling Stone described their sweaty grooves as "chugging scuzzbucket boogie...equipped with whiskey breath and a satchel full of filthy jokes". NPR / Fresh Air, said of the record.. "It startles you with just how much juice, passion and wit has gone into making this sound"...And legendary music critic Robert Christgau (aka the Dean of American Rock Critics) hailed their singles "Shit Shower and Shave", "Rio" and "Big Thighs New Jersey" as some of the best of the year, calling them "refreshingly scuzzball anthems, pure resolute rock n roll!"
The brainchild of two songwriters from across the pond, Adam Weiner (the piano bruiser from New Jersey USA) and Dan Finnemore (the garage rocker from Birmingham UK)...Low Cut Connie expanded into a five-man powerhouse line-up with the release of their second record, Call Me Sylvia. The debut single from the record, "Boozophilia" attracted significant notice across the country and was named by Rolling Stone magazine as one of the top 50 songs of the year. Jack White asked them to record a live session at his Third Man Records. The band toured non-stop throughout 2012 and 2013 to promote the record, building their growing fanbase and establishing themselves as one of the best live acts around. The LA Weekly said of them, "their ferocious live show is unmatched in all of rock right now." Everywhere they go, they carry a 350 pound piano with them, inspiring and titillating the crowds in every bar they enter, and bringing them into their expanding rock n roll tent.
At the end of 2013, the boys are heading back into the studio to record their third record with acclaimed producer Thomas Brenneck from Dunham / Daptone Records (he has worked with Amy Winehouse, Charles Bradley, the Black Lips, Rufus Wainwright, and many more). With the famous Budos Band horns behind them, and a great team promoting them, Low Cut Connie is headed for a big year in 2014.
