MEET THE BAND

About

Bred from an adolescence spent climbing from the hellish pits of Florida's dives, The Dirty Janes ooze a rock n' roll authenticity hard to come by in modern day.

 

Their fledgling years were typical — dingy sports bars, set-lists laden with covers — and they were well-documented under the group's former name “Sick Hot," which was at long last laid to rest after more than half a decade.

Now, there's a revised air of sophistication that seeps between the curtain of fringe sleeves and shaggy manes of hair; covers have become far and few within a prolific repertoire of original music that's reminiscent of godfather rock bands like Humble Pie, Slade, and early Aerosmith.

The Dirty Janes emerge seasoned with several major festival appearances under their belt, having played with names like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Elle King, The Allman Betts Band, and Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown.

With a full-length album under way, Clearwater's renowned Clear Track Studios has become a second home for the group. Multiple singles are expected to hit all streaming platforms this year.
