Simon Flory brings a pedigree to his music that defies such convenient assumptions. Born in rural Indiana shortly after his family moved "west" from southern Virginia to start a livestock feed store, Flory's music is suffused with the elements of his childhood – days spent in the fields, church sings, gravel roads, and genuine mule drawn molasses.

“There are few in the contemporary country/honky-tonk world that wrangle a banjo like frontman Simon Flory – between his furious effects pedal switches, drop-to-his-knees head-banging and a voice with the thrust and range of My Morning Jacket’s Jim James, he’s a formidable force on his own.”
-Lyynks Music

Flory's sound evokes voices not much heard on radio airwaves, a stew of early country, gospel, and the best of classic Nashville. But rather than spectral museum pieces, these are the visceral, resonant, living voices of traditional idioms that are far too often caricatured and rarely venerated and furthered as they are under Flory's watch.
