The Good Morning Nags are an Americana and indie-folk band based in New York City. Growing up near pecan trees, red clay, and winding rivers, the Nags bring the front porch to the concrete stoop, mixing Old Crow Medicine Show and the Avett Brothers with a whole lot of city swagger. After initially forming while in college together, they got their official start busking in New York's subways, parks, warehouses, and rooftops, before upgrading to the local clubs and venues. They landed a residency at the Opry City Stage, played a few shows in Canada and France, and then returned to the US to release their debut album Hard Hope in December of 2018. The Nags are embarking on their first US tour this Summer and Fall 2019.
Upcoming Tour Dates
"Their sound is like a classic folk-rock/bluegrass-meets -The Struts with a little bit of NYC attitude thrown in there for good measure… It’s evident that the bandmates have fantastic chemistry, and are having as much fun creating and performing their music, as it is to listen to it."
"The Good Morning Nags are an incredible band and a live show is something you don’t want to miss out on should you be lucky enough to catch one."
"...brings back Americana in a way that is accessible, and very different from most of the music coming out of NYC"
“…an exquisitely original meld of traditional Appalachian folk music and contemporary country swagger…”
Is it folk? Is it Bluegrass? Is it some sort of Rock amalgamation? Whatever it is, it’s fantastic.
