Lifelong friends and deep-north natives, Michigan Rattlers play heavy-hearted folk-rock with an aching
dose of Midwestern nice. Graham Young (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Reed (vocals/upright bass), Christian
Wilder (vocals/piano) and Tony Audia (drums) began writing music and performing together in their
Northern Michigan high school. They regularly played every bar, cafe, and stage in town, developing a
musical chemistry informed by the likes of AC/DC, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Bob Seger, and more.
After a few years apart, Reed and Young settled down in Los Angeles, recorded a short demo, and began
playing locally. The demo found its way in the hands of super-producer Johnny K, and they cut the bulk of
their first EP at NRG studios in just one day. This self-titled Michigan Rattlers EP attracted glowing reviews
from No Depression, Bluegrass Situation, Relix, Glide, Grammy.com and more. Rolling Stone named the
band one of their “Ten New Country Artists You Need To Know.” In 2018, following a massive summer
tour that included stops at Bonnaroo, Firefly and Electric Forest; the band released their highly anticipated
debut full length album, Evergreen, and added pianist Christian Wilder and drummer Tony Audia to their
lineup. The Michigan Rattlers are currently in the studio recording their second full length album in
between tour dates.
