Guitar Player Presents Tishamingo
September 20, 2006
Tishamingo’s twin guitar approach of Jess Franklin and Cameron Williams fist caught Guitar Player’s attention when the band released the whisky-soaked Wear N’ Tear [Magnatude] in 2005. The two guitarists produce a thick tapestry of time-honored tones, with Franklin being the primary soloist and Williams being the primary vocalist. Williams’ vocals show a Widespread Panic influence, while Franklin’s soulful slide style reflects Allman Brothers inspirations. Tishamingo’s ability to create cool new music using a classic combination of sounds landed them in GP’s Buzz section.
The Athens, GA-based outfit has been on the road growing musically and expanding its audience consistently. They’ve played the Bonnaroo festival, toured Europe, and will join Lynryd Skynryd’s Gimmie Three Days cruise in January 2007. The band’s highly anticipated new CD produced by John Kurzweg (Puddle of Mudd, Creed) is now complete and slated for a late January release.
Bounce on down to the Boom Boom Room to bask in a new batch of Tishamingo tunes. We expect a generous helping of old school guitar fireworks from these ambitious young six-string slingers.
