As a harmonica player, the Kentucky-based Colonel J.D. Wilkes has recorded his raw, country-blues style for everyone from Merle Haggard to Mike Patton, Hank Williams III to his own band the Legendary Shack Shakers. Mixing acoustic rockabilly, blues, jazz, and country into a thrilling Frankenstein hybrid, Wilkes and the Dirt Daubers (named after the southern slang term for a stingless wasp that builds mud-clumps in the corners of old barns) are proud to debut their new album Wake Up Sinners, a collection of raw originals and covers, recorded together in real time: in a big, live, open room, the real man way. This is ornery, full-throated American music sung from the gut and shot from the hip. The Dirt Daubers are: Col. J.D. Wilkes (vocals, banjo, french harp, piano, accordion, kazoo, thunder sheet), Jessica Wilkes (vocals, tenor guitar, mandolin, tenor banjo), Mark Robertson (background vocals, upright bass) with special guest Steve Latanation (drums and percussion).
