The New York trio perform raw blues-rock with a heavy funk influence.
"...like Chicago blues fired at the moon, played by the demented children of the Pretty Things." - Rolling Stone
When asked by Village Voice “What is Daddy Long Legs?,” Brian answered, “Rock and roll salvation through the spirit of roots and blues.” While influenced by the likes of Son House, Captain Beefheart, Howlin’ Wolf, MC5, and Dr. Feelgood, their sound personifies garage rock and punk with a contemporary raw twist performed in their own brand of supercharged R&B.
Now, Daddy Long Legs make their highly anticipated post pandemic return to the UK unveiling their new killer 4 piece format with Dave Klein on keyboards who joins Brian Hurd (vocals, harmonica, guitar), Murat Akturk (slide guitar) and Josh Styles (drums, maracas).
The Brooklyn 4 piece have been working on a new album to follow up the genre defying Lowdown Ways, released on Yep Roc Records in 2018.
