As the name implies, The Darnell Boys are a bona fide family band. Siblings Caleb, Gus, and Austin play a steadfastly authentic blend of blues, country and other such traditional sounds, taking cues from legends like Howlin' Wolf, Ray Charles and Otis Redding to create a uniquely soulful sound. At the heart of the music is a shared history that cannot be substituted with any amount of outsider talent.
