Amigo The Devil reveals powerful music video for “Cocaine and Abel”

A key figure in the U.S. “murder folk” scene which also includes contemporaries such as The Devil Makes Three and The Dead South, the music of singer-songwriter Amigo The Devil is a unique blend of folk that also incorporates elements of Southern Gothic, Country and Bluegrass.

Initially influenced by the likes of Tom Waits, Nick Cave and Godspeed! You Black Emperor, the artist born as Danny Kiranos has a recognized sound that carries traces of artists such as Americana string band Old Crow Medicine Show and singer-songwriters William Elliott Whitmore and David Eugene Edwards of 16 Horsepower, allied with direct, often morbid lyrics shot through with a dark sense of humor.
 

Amigo The Devil reveals new track “Everyone Gets Left Behind”

Danny Kiranos, better known to the masses as his musical counterpart Amigo The Devil, has been challenging the expectations of traditional folk, country music purists, and rock/extreme metal fans alike with his morbid, dark, yet oddly romantic take on folk that has amassed a dedicated and cult like fan-base.
