====================

Obadiah is a three-piece band with a sound that’s grounded in songwriter independent rock, yet fringes country-folk sounds. This Alternative Country-Rock barebones, three-piece sound lends itself to simple and uncluttered, rhythm section arrangements. This makes the songs themselves really shine.

These three guys from Northeast Georgia play a repertoire of classic Songwriter, Rock, Americana, Alt. Country, and Country-Rock songs picked from great music over the ages. Obadiah is Alternative. They are Country. And they quite simply rock!

Along with great cover songs, Obadiah blends in a mix of original alternative country rock songs. Singer/Songwriter and guitarist for the band, j. Christian Miller has a long history in the Underground, Independent College scene of the 1980s and 90s. Obadiah’s sound is unapologetically confounded with Chris’s stylistic bent.

Obadiah is j. Christian Miller on guitar and vocals, Bill Purvis on bass and vocals, and Joe Munoz on percussion and vocals.

The three guys have locked themselves in the basement, rehearsing for the last six weeks learning a setlist of great cover songs. The band is now beginning to setup booking and building an itinerary of shows around the band’s home-region of Southern Appalachia. Obadiah is stationed at the point about equidistant between Athens & Atlanta, Georgia, Asheville, North Carolina, Knoxville & Chattanooga Tennessee, Greenville & Spartanburg, South Carolina. Southern Appalachia should be a state, and is definitely a state-of-mind which Obadiah certainly shares.

Expect great new things from Obadiah in the coming months. There is a lot of work to do to get there, but the band has plans… … to first, play a bunch of gigs. Check out an early performance in North Georgia (October 5, 2012 at The Promenade of the Arts, Mountain City, Georgia) .

The bands plans are to do a sort of mini-tour around our hometown over the coming months. The setlist is chosen from songs that the band would love to emulate the sound of. Over the coming months the will begin incorporating some of Singer/Guitarist j. Christian Miller’s huge and diverse catalog of original songs into the Setlist.

This is where the band is now…

Next, the boys will compose a new album’s worth of songs, record, and release these.

“We are writing all the time…” shares singer/guitarist Chris Miller.

“I have maybe fifty songs in my own catalog that have never been recorded, much less releases….” Chris further shares.

Stay tuned here for exciting news!

Interested in booking Obadiah? …Quirky, songwriter-oriented songs that blend folk, country, rock, but with a more primitive, three-piece ensemble… Soft enough for a dinner party, rocking enough for a keg party! Book Obadiah.
