About:

“Beautiful pop hooks and melodies wrapped in twang, reminiscent of the Jayhawks’ best stuff.... [Of the Worthless Son-in-Laws' latest album, Resplendent Verge:] Jimmy Davidson and friends from Boone NC have crafted another smart, literate collection of melodic indie-Americana/rock tunes worthy of a wide audience.”—Warren Catlett, Radio Free Americana

The Worthless Son-in-Laws are a Boone, North Carolina-based band formed and baptized with their grammatically incorrect moniker in the wee hours of 2004. They play Appalachian Mountain Indie-Rock, which various people have likened to some combination of Ryan Adams, Son Volt, Wilco, early REM, the Jayhawks, the dB's, Mark Eitzel, the Allman Brothers, and Justin Townes Earle.

Jimmy Davidson (acoustic guitar/vocals) and Rob Brown (electric guitar/vocals) write songs about t-shirt shops, Mississippi highways, weddings, and life on container ships, among other things. Jimmy draws from his work experiences and flips through Bryan Garner’s Dictionary of Modern American Usage for inspiration, while Rob’s muse is his latent desire to be a truck driver (he is, in truth, a university professor). Jimmy used to play toy drums and acoustic guitar with songwriter Vic Chesnutt. Rich Crepeau (bass guitar, PhD) plays bass and writes a sinister country-punk number his own self now and then. And, he’s on the Boone Board of Adjustment. Dave Brewer plays drums and offers smart-assed commentary on the proceedings.
