Heading 4



The Autumn Saints are an Anglo-American quartet based in Oxford, UK. 

The band's music has its roots planted firmly in the American South, with lead singer Britt Strickland bringing the soulful, weighty music history of his home state of North Carolina to the City of Dreaming Spires. The southern storytelling tradition made famous by the likes of Dylan and Johnny Cash is very much alive in the Saints' music, with tales of hurricanes sweeping through the Appalachian Mountains and encounters with the devil at the crossroads unraveling in each song.

The British influence in the band, though, is also unmistakable. The melodic, ethereal guitar lines that float and weave through the songs create the sort of atmospheric depth that British indie groups have always done so well. Both David Ireland (guitar) and Martin Gallagher(drums) bring their own musical influences to the mix, from the shuffling rhythms and counter-rhythms of groups like the Stone Roses to the twisting, choppy guitar licks of Wilko Johnson. 

Nick Bennett adds his twangy rhythm guitar, keyboards, harmonica, lap steel and harmonies to our band.

"A kind of rootsy rock music for cathedrals...amongst my favourite of our recent finds"

"Vocals that Kings of Leon would be jealous of, kicking bass & chunky chip riffs"

"Atmospheric, meaningful songs...they are quite mesmerizing"

"Oxfordshire has a long history of Americana bands [but] they don't often come as deep and weighty as this"
