"Anyone who claims that rock and soul ain’t what it used to be clearly hasn’t heard of these stunning musicians. This will remind you of soul and blues from the late 60’s – with rock from the early 70’s. But probably the most compelling quality of the Dead 27s is how seamlessly they stay true to the pure, old school rock and soul sounds while making their music cutting edge relevant to today’s listeners."   JamSphere - 2015

VENTS Magazine Interviews: Dead 27s

by RJ Frometa

Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been? 

We’ve been fantastic! We are getting really excited about the next record we have coming out. We have been getting some mixes back from Count (aka Mikael Eldridge), who is mixing the record for us, so we have been focusing a lot on that. The fact that he is mixing it is exciting in and of itself… he just won a Grammy for some work he did on a Mavis Staples track. Also, Ben Ellman from Galactic is the producer for the next album. So, between that and hitting the road you have a group of pretty happy musicians. Thanks for asking! 

Can you talk to us more about your latest single “Don’t Want To Live My Life Without You”? 

When we first got together to work on original material it was the first song that Trey brought to the table. Its a fun tune that has a lot of that 60’s and 70’s soul influence and a really catchy hook. It has been really well received by our fans and by independent radio stations around SC and NC. Trey’s falsetto on the chorus and Wallace’s guitar solo make it a great song for people who are just getting introduced to us.
