Dax Riggs is a Louisiana son of a Jehovahs Witness. Naturally, he sings gothic songs about God and Satan (mostly Satan) that are a raunchy blend of Fat Possumstyle raw blues, back-porch picking, classic rock, and 80s metal. When considering the bluesman continuum, hes halfway on the moon shot between Nick Cave and R.L. Burnside. Carrie Biell, Or, the Whale, and Beaten Awake open.
Listen to a sample of Dax Riggs' "Living is Suicide."
