The Deadbeat Apostles


Ladies and Gentlemen, for your listening pleasure, the music of the Deadbeat Apostles. The Deadbeat Apostles play a unique blend of country soul, barrelhouse R’n’B and down home rock and roll. Featuring the sharpest dressed vocal duo this side of Nashville alongside the authentic guitar sound of the Cumnor backwoods and the dangerous rhythms of the Iffley swamplands, this bunch of ruined and desperate humanity journey far and wide to bring you their very own Travellin’ Riverside Blues. Their debut album Day of the Deadbeats chandeliers off of gutsy crescendos and garage band guitars, with early-Nashville dripping from the strings.

If you haven’t seen them live yet you’re in for a treat with Oxford’s Nightshift Magazine stating The Deadbeat Apostles are the place where The Grand Ol’ Opry meets Harlem Apollo, steel guitar twang and Mike Ginger’s big, rootsy voice up against the phenomenal Michelle Mayes, a full-on soul belter who should be leading her own revue. They have a well-earned reputation as one of the best live bands in Oxford." Ladies and Gentlemen – we give you The Deadbeat Apostles
