Formed by bassist/singer Sam Price (Honey Island Swamp Band, OTRA) in Dec. 2015 as an outlet for his original song-writing, the band has quickly gained popularity in New Orleans. Their debut EP was chosen as the ‘Best Roots Rock Album of 2017’ by Offbeat Magazine. They were awarded a grant by the Threadhead Cultural Foundation the following year to record the 2019 album Dragonfly, produced by Papa Mali.
Call it Soul Rock, New Orleans Roots Rock, Funk and Roll or Blue-Eyed Soul. The True Believers deliver songs that are alternately upbeat and rocking, slinky and funky, or mellow and poignant, with lyrics that are honest, thoughtful, and “so from the heart, it hurts!”
