Trucker Mouth hails from Boston area and proves that Southern rock isn’t tied to any specific location. With one album already released, the band is busy in the studio to work on their follow-up.
Trucker Mouth was formed in 2006 when high school friends and seasoned musicians from various local line-ups Chad Raleigh (guitars), Patrick Barrett (drums) and Tim Atkins (vocals and guitars) joined forces with Steve Sofronas (bass). Trucker Mouth have been spreading their brand of southern rock all over New England ever since.
Trucker mouth recorded their self-titled debut at Chillhouse Studios in Charlestown with Sound Engineer & Producer Eric Welsh who has previously worked with The Pixies and Billy Idol. The album was released in July 2008 and featured slightly provocative cover in addition to dozen top-notch songs showing maturity rare for a band that had been together for less than two years.
You can hear the band tapping into traditions of musical companions Drive-By Truckers and The Black Crowes while still creating their own unique variety of southern rock with excellent interaction between lead and rhythm guitar and Tim’s raspy vocals. If interested, you can buy it from the band for $10. Free U.S. shipping included.
Trucker Mouth toured extensively around northeaster US to promote it and have been back in the studio to record their sophomore effort. Front man Tim Atkins took a little break from their recording schedule to answer few of our questions, so be sure to check out our Trucker Mouth interview as well as review for Trucker Mouth’s debut album.
