One of the best parts about side projects of already-famous performers is that their new groups don't have to go through
the same growing pains as bands without a history. The Autumn Defense is made up of musicians who already honed their skills
with other bands, meaning that their live shows are always top-notch and unforgettable.
Even before The Autumn Defense rose to prominence, most people had heard of one of the founders, John Stirratt. Stirratt
was already famous because of his work with bands like Wilco
and Uncle Tupelo. Stirratt was in need of an outlet for his creations that didn't fit into his band's work, and he teamed
with likeminded musician Pat Sansone to form The Autumn Defense.
The sounds of The Autumn Defense are at the same time reminiscent of the past and pointing toward the future. They have
a feel of the 1960s and 1970s that is reminiscent of some of the biggest pop acts from those decades. They add in a depth
of instrumentation and lyricism that begs the indie label and draws fans to their live
Whether you are a fan of The Autumn Defense members' other work or not, checking them out live
in concert is sure to be a fantastic experience. Their music is the type that has a depth that can only be fully appreciated
at one of their live shows. Gather your crew together and check them out a venue near you.
