Fifth On The Floor Ashes And Angels on LP
Produced by Shooter Jennings!
In the summer of 2006, Fifth on the Floor played their first show in a small bar in Central Kentucky. The band was a different beast than it is today: originally six members strong, FOTF reveled in up-tempo songs about women and libation, influenced equally by Creedence Clearwater Revival and Jerry Lee Lewis, by Hank Williams and the Band.
Fifth on the Floor quickly started garnering attention for their high-energy live shows. The band’s growing fan base led to shows opening for the Marshall Tucker Band, Lucero, Dale Watson and Blackberry Smoke, as well as several headlining tours throughout the South and the Midwest. Word of mouth put the band further and further from their home state of Kentucky, while the high volume of shows allowed the band to focus its multitude of influences into a cohesive sound, nodding at styles ranging from southern rock to blues to bluegrass while maintaining the sound the band had become known for.
Elements of numerous roots styles show in the band’s music, but Fifth on the Floor’s live show, featuring Aaron “Laser” Graham, Jason Parsons, Matty Rodgers and Justin Wells, is undoubtedly a rock show. For their upcoming record Ashes & Angels, the band recruited fan Shooter Jennings to produce. The twelve tracks highlight the ferocity of the band’s live performances combined with the strength of their collective song-writing. Fifth on the Floor’s style of rowdy rock and roll is everything you’d expect from four Kentucky gentlemen.
"Fifth on the Floor have positioned themselves as the next great Southern rock group." - No Depression
