This Montana Based Roots rock band envelopes the introspective  and often heavy  songwriting of Taylor Burlage in a blanket of sound descended from southern rock, and psychedelia. The Dead & Down will take you on a journey; moments of cosmic flare and pure, unadulterated rock and roll balanced with a western feel. Imagine if Keith Richards and John Prine were in Pink Floyd and you might find a starting point for what they sound like.   

“The Dead and Down have a sound that doesn't fit into one bin. They combine elements of Country, Americana, and Rock for a sonic experience that stays interesting. Their new song, “Switchbacks” has a solid country-rock feel, but the break in the middle is a lot more akin to prog rock. It's a combo that works!” - Bob Wall, KGVM Bozeman

“Alt-country, but on the moon––– and still so down to earth.” - Missoula Alt Weekly
