Four albums and 15 years in, Possum Jenkins still delivers a sound as unapologetically Southern as bowl of hot grits. Brimming with elements of outlaw and '90s country, raw electric blues, funky soul and rock, the band has been turning heads throughout the Carolinas and beyond with a sound they call "Carolinacana."
Forming at Appalachian State University in Boone in 2004, Possum Jenkins has toiled and triumphed in bars, clubs, theaters and festivals, sharing the stage with several notables, including Jason Isbell, Billy Joe Shaver, Tift Merritt, Southern Culture On The Skids, Greg Humphries, Drivin' 'N Cryin', The North Mississippi Allstars, Yarn and more.
"The three songwriters each bring a different sensibility to band’s signature backwoods stew of country boogie, blues and gospel, with Brewer playing the genial convener and soul channeler, Willis as the laconic blues interpreter and Nathan Turner as the plainsong belter." -Jordan Greene, Triad City Beat 2018
