ELECTRONIC PRESS KIT
The Chitlins came together along the sandy shores of the Gulf of Mexico, in the coastal city of Gulfport, Mississippi. They take a back-to-the-basics approach to their "Southern fried" brand of music. Not relying on modern technology (auto-tune, synths, drum triggers...) to polish their sound. Influenced by the culture and traditions of the southern way of life. A bit rough around the edges, yet cooked up with true soul and served up piping hot!!!!
Nominated Best Mississippi Blues Band and Best New Artist 2017 by The Mississippi Music Foundation
