There was a time before Twitter feuds and reality TV, before the anonymous cruelty of YouTube comments, before the cold impersonality of auto-tune. A time when larger-than-life rock icons with wild hair and tight pants screamed a message of peace, free love, and unity to the thunder of drums and the wailing of electric guitars.
Worthy Fools is here to carry on that legacy, bringing the soul and swagger of classic rock into the modern age. Built around the driving rhythms, instrumental grandeur, and vocal pyrotechnics of the 1970s and 80s, the Fools’ sound draws heavily upon the rhythm and flow of contemporary hip-hop, seamlessly integrating rap verse and rock grooves in pulse-pounding musical synergy. Add in a healthy dose of folk flavor and lush, gospel-inspired four-part vocal harmonies, and you’ve got a one-of-a-kind rock 'n roll tapestry whose individual threads reach from Led Zeppelin to the Notorious B.I.G.
From rousing anthems like “Love Like That” to the heartbreaking intimacy of “Forgotten,” the songs of Worthy Fools are a musical celebration embracing all the flawed and beautiful parts of who we are. We are musicians and storytellers, freaks and drama geeks, queers, jocks, nerds, scholars and warrior poets.
We are worthy. And so are you.
