Black Diamond Heavies hail from Nashville, Tennessee but currently live as "vagrants/citizens of the world." The music is urgent,raw,and full of ass-shaking soul. The live show has been described as both "Pentecostal" and "Demon-Possessed". Most of the material is original, although covers are sometimes thrown in as tribute to gods, generals, heroes, and vampires such as John Lee Hooker, T-Model Ford, Muddy Waters, Nina Simone, and Tom Waits. The Heavies continuously gain momentum on their quest to unleash the punk-ass blues on the world.
