This DC Roots Rock band is a complete set of four talented characters that have been playing for decades in other solid DC area groups. When you put these musicians together you have an Outlaw Country meets Rock and Roll gang that will blow you away with deep resonate vocals by Ty Braddock reminiscent of the greats: Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash and Waylon Jennings; plenty of harmony from inmates Scott Holland, Glenn Shoup and Patty Dougherty; and some real Rock and Country chops delivered by them all.
They’ll lull you with a George Harrison song, surprise you with a Steve Earle number and wow you with their own kitschy-style original “Toll Booth Betty.”
The Loyal Inmates capture the audience’s attention through the variety of music they play—familiar rhythms but not the classic covers that you might expect. Of course there are exceptions. With a voice like Braddock’s, it would be a disservice not to play a few essential classics like Cash’s “Folsom Prison Blues” and George Jone’s “White Lightnin” Inmate influences include Outlaw Country, Traditional Country, Rock ‘n Roll, Jazz and Blues. They showcase occasional originals to hidden gems mined from the albums of artists like The Allman Brothers, John Hiatt, Waylon Jennings, Leonard Skynard and the Bottle Rockets.
Ty “aka/The Voice” Braddock has sang with Willie Nelson, Dale Watson and Ruthie and the Wranglers and was nominated for Best Country Vocalist by the Washington Area Music Association for 15 years including 2014. Ty’s song “Men of Iron” (A co-write with John Keltonic) was the sound track for the 1st place award winning corporate video Men of Iron seen here: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=jYmYUU2Fwmk&feature=youtu.be
