Chicago foursome, The Dirty Pigeons, are an ambitious Rock and Roll band comprised of Brian Morrissey, Dan Ingenthron, Ryan Juravic, and Nate Weathers. Captivating audiences with their raw, earnest performances, the band has shared the stage with Drive By Truckers, Dawes, Joe Pug, Ezra Furman & The Harpoons, Apex Manor, Bailiff, and The Dig. They have kept quite busy for a band that has only been in existence for one year.
Brian Morrissey’s songwriting owes a debt to Neil Young, Sparklehorse, Big Star, and comedian Bill Hicks. Smart arrangements, melodic vocals, unexpected rhythmic shifts, thick guitars and heavy keyboards are what anchor the band’s sound. The Dirty Pigeons are a true Rock and Roll band.
They began recording songs for their debut EP in the fall of 2011. With years of studio experience between them, the band decided to record all of the material on their own. Building makeshift studios in the back of a guitar shop and in their own apartments, the results were just what they had envisioned; the perfect blend of live rawness and elaborate studio orchestration. With their EP set for release in Summer 2012, The Dirty Pigeons continue to write new material and build on their acclaimed live performances.
