Murder ballads, caustic skiffle and bar room melancholy!

Mixing up folk and Americana with a particular penchant for murder ballads, caustic skiffle and bar room melancholy, Grae J. and Los Chicos Muertos regularly tour on the continent as well as being stalwarts of the UK Acoustica scene – featuring members of The Trailer Trash Orchestra, The Astronauts and Jesus Hooligan.

As an eternal troubadour Grae J's songs are often inspired by his road trips, with narratives set in the motels of Bakersfield, the bar-rooms of Berlin and the back-streets of Paris. Grae and the band have performed at Glastonbury, Boomtown, Bestival and many more intimate venues across Europe.

The band have shared the stage with inspirational characters including TV Smith, Patrik Fitzgerald and John Cooper Clarke as well as backing Ed Tudorpole a few times on live renditions of Swords of a Thousand Men. The boys also collaborated on the production of the acclaimed Knoxville Boy album with Knox (The Vibrators) . Grae J. has contributed tracks to a number of compilation albums including tributes to Kevin Coyne and a self produced tribute to Nikki Sudden.

Brand new album Quinze Petites Morts has received excellent reviews and airplay!

“For an album so packed with suicide, death and loss it seems to be almost celebratory, placing a massive grin on the listener’s face. Death loses its power, the Grim Reaper is dragged in, has a glass placed in his hand and is forced to join the party.” – RnR, *****
