Relentlessly picking up steam, Atlanta’s driving southern rock band Outformation continues their national tour this summer in response to their quickly growing fan base. Recently named Best New Band of 2005 by the readers of Honest Tune Magazine, Outformation's debut album, 'Tennessee Before Daylight', was also nominated for Album of the Year by the same publication.
With dates traversing from Chicago, IL to Lincoln, NB, Boulder, CO, and Dallas, TX, Outformation is quickly becoming recognized as a rising star in Southern rock.
First recognized for their illustrious roots (guitarist and founding member Sam Holt has long been the guitar tech for Michael Houser and Widespread Panic), Outformation has made a name for themselves in their own right through power guitar playing and authentic southern songs.
Comprised of Holt (guitar, vocals), Grady Upchurch (bass, vocals), Clarke Keown (guitar, vocals), Lee Schwartz (drums, vocals), and Jeff "Birdogg" Lane (percussion) Outformation has made an impressive debut on the music scene.
Holt's regular special guest appearances along the 2006 summer Widespread Panic tour has garnished a number of new and devoted fans around the globe. With a fan club site in the works and music collectors rampantly collecting the live music there is no doubt that this is one band is clearly on the rise.
