      EVENT DETAILS
      Drunken Prayer


      Morgan Geer, the songwriter behind Drunken Prayer, was born in San Francisco and grew up traveling around the US, following his folksinging mother. Today he splits time between Portland, OR and Asheville, NC. Hes lived in nearly every region of the country and sounds like it. His is American music - straight, no irony chaser.Drunken Prayer will likely bring to mind The Band for a lot of listeners, with the sense of place and history. But Morgan Geers songs and his singing often suggest a kinship with artists like Bobby Charles or Doug Sahm, musicians with Southern roots, with a yip and break to their voices, and notes of sadness offset by a wicked sense of humor.Over the past two years Drunken Prayer has played hundreds of shows across 18 countries and across the US at venues such as the Pickathon Music Festival and San Francisco's Great American Music Hall. Geer's music has been featured on AMC, NPR, WFMU and SiriusXM.The new Drunken Prayer album, Cordelia Elsewhere, was mixed by Mitch Easter (Lets Active, REM) at The Fidelitorium in North Carolina. An eccentric descendant of outlaw country, these songs bare witness to life on earth in uncertain times.Morgan Geer is the current guitar player for iconic alt-country goths Freakwater. Recently Morgan has been touring internationally, solo with The Handsome Family.
