The Builders and the Butchers
The Builders and the Butchers are: Ryan Sollee (vocals, guitar), Brandon Hafer (drums, vocals, melodica), Willy Kunkle (bass, vocals), Ray Rude (organs, drums, vocals), and Harvey Tumbleson (banjo, mandolin, vocals). Former bassist Alex Ellis performed on the record as well.
Praise for The Builders And The Butchers’ sophomore album Salvation Is A Deep Dark Well:

“…this isn’t music built on theory: It’s music to dance, sweat, weep and rejoice to. Like their spiritual ancestors in 16 Horsepower, The Builders and the Butchers’ members don’t so much make church music as deliver the sermons themselves.”
– NPR’s Song Of The Day, “Devil Town”

“In the footsteps of Cormac McCarthy on a leash, Salvation is a Deep Dark Well unfolds as a collection of Southern Gothic narratives whose tales of death, red skies, god and his other half are caked with the dusty blood of too many sunrises…a blooming balance of dark nu-folk instrumental layers weave with Americana-rooted romps.”
– Filter

“The Builders And The Butchers’ musical output is something of a Pentecostal throw-down—the musical underpinnings are reminiscent of bluegrass, but the performances are raw and unschooled, with Sollee in particular throwing off a maniacally ecclesiastical sort of energy…dark, sparkling, Leadbelly-like terrain covered by death-fixated epics…”
