Warren Haynes Signs with Atlas1/31/2017
Named one of Rolling Stone's "100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time," Warren Haynes is recognized as a prolific musician and a cornerstone of the American music landscape. He has brought his virtuosic artistry to three of the greatest live rock groups - Allman Brothers Band, Gov't Mule and The Dead - leading to millions of album and track sales and thousands of live shows. A prodigious live musician, his solo albums and live performances with The Warren Haynes Band and Ashes and Dust Band cause audiences to flock to his performances around the globe to witness his expertly crafted songs and fiery guitar work. Steeped in blues, soul and Southern rock traditions, Haynes is lauded for his ability to effortlessly cross-pollinate genres as he continues to collaborate with a wide array of fellow musicians, from legacy icons of our time to today's most promising young artists.
Haynes' band Gov't Mule, a true ensemble known for their flexible live interplay, have recorded ten studio albums, numerous live albums, and continue to produce new music with an album due in 2017. With a vast reservoir of songs, Haynes is celebrated as one of music's most treasured storytellers. 2017 will see that canon of music continue to grow as his songwriting shines a light on yet another facet of his creativity and continues to be a gift to his large cross-section of fans.
Atlas Founder/CEO Richard Stumpf shares, "Many people know Warren as the legendary guitar player / vocalist who anchored bands like his own Gov't Mule, The Allman Brothers and even The Dead after Jerry Garcia passed. He is all of that, but just as importantly, he is an incredible songwriter. In addition to songs he made famous, like 'Soulshine' and 'Rocking Horse,' Warren penned one of Garth Brooks' most performed songs, 'Two of a Kind, Workin' on a Full House.' He is a true creative spirit who can work across many genres, and it is with great pride and humbleness that we welcome Warren to the Atlas family. We look forward to bringing Warren many new opportunities where his writing will shine."
Haynes states, "I'm very excited to be working with Rich Stumpf again and his new company, Atlas. Not only is he passionate, he's a real music guy that we're lucky to have in the business."
