''Pull-the-chord-and-let-the-snot-fly-blues''-Relix Magazine

''What Daddy Long Legs unleashed upon these cynical ears was nothing short of masterwork. A shot in the dark of the deep trembling heart of rock'n'roll, all desperation and harmonica short-fuse mess-around, blowing yr ears, yr speakers, yr very rhythmic pulse, whoopin' and stompin' from the get-go, going deep down into yr soul and pulling you into frenzy, wailing the chug a chug and chug a lug, spilled beer on the barroom floor while you kick and shimmy the slide on down to Satan's very personal lounge, the sound of the damned and the sound of the "we don't give a fuck", because the shack is open 24-7 and we're gonna grind and fuck the latest morning and the deepest night, blow, baby, blow, the train is haulin' and we're in the caboose, the back end of respected society, hootin' it up to the end of the line.
Best Record Of The Year!''-Big Rock Candy Mountain

"Daddy Long Legs is a man. A tall man. A tall, well-dressed, imposing man who blows the harmonica as if breathing life and soul into Delta bluesmen long dead"
-The Deli

''In addition to a deliciously unhealthy dose of harmonica, this Brooklyn trio’s electrifying backwater blues is rounded out by primal drums and guitar, which leaves room for singer Daddy Long Legs to belt out his musical sermon.''
- The Most Interesting Academy -Dos Equis

“a trio of characters forging rock n' roll spectacle for the eyes and ears, hearkening back to when troubadours drank moonshine and took their role as entertainers more seriously. / Hands down Daddy Long Legs is the best blues harmonica player this writer has ever seen or heard. His playing is so pummeling and soulful it just saws you in half.- The Deli NYC

“a conduit for pure rock n roll”- Red Hook Star Revue

''Brooklyn's Stompin' Blues Kings''-Nortonville!

HAILING FROM ATLANTA, GA, GARAGE ROCKER ROD HAMDALLAH HAS BEEN TEARING UP THE SOUTHEAST MUSIC SCENE SINCE BEFORE HE WAS OLD ENOUGH TO HAVE HIS FIRST DRINK.



BY AGE 16, ROD WAS SOAKING UP GARAGE ROCK AND SOUTHERN DELTA BLUES AND MASTERING IT TECHNICALLY AT A RELENTLESS PACE.



SUBSEQUENTLY INFLUENCED BY EARLY SOUL AS WELL, HAMDALLAH TOOK HIS MUSIC TO YET ANOTHER LEVEL; AND BY AGE 17, HE WAS SHARING THE STAGE WITH INFLUENCES SUCH AS BLUES PRODIGY SEAN COSTELLO, JACK WHITE MENTOR DEXTER ROMWEBER AND MANY, MANY MORE.



THE ELEMENTS IN ROD'S ORIGINAL MUSICAL ARE ROOTED IN BLUES, GARAGE AND EARLY SOUL. DARK STORYTELLING AND AMERICAN ROOTS MUSIC PLAY A BIG PART IN HIS SONGWRITING AS WELL. HE CREATES A SOUND THAT CAN BE LIKENED TO SUCH ARTISTS AS FLAT DUO JETS, CAPTAIN BEEFHEART AND THE BLACK KEYS.



THINK ABOUT IT, HAMDALLAH’S DEBUT EP, WAS RELEASED MAY 1ST, 2014. IT IS A WAILING GARAGE-ROCK STOMPER WITH BLUESY, LO-FI VOCALS ALL THROUGHOUT ITS FIVE TRACKS. THE SINGLE "THINK ABOUT IT" WILL KEEP YOUR HEAD BOBBING WITH ITS DIRTY GUITAR AND PUNK ROCK ATTITUDE, ALL WHILE HIS SOULFUL VOCALS THREAD THROUGHOUT.



"CARRY YOU HOME" FEATURES COLONEL J.D. WILKES, OF THE LEGENDARY SHACK SHAKERS, A BAND ROD HAS TOURED WITH WORLDWIDE. WILKES ADDS BOTH BANJO AND AN ALMOST-DREAMY, WURLITZER PIANO TO THIS BLUESY WESTERN TUNE.



CRAFTING A SOUND FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE, DYNAMIC VARIATION AND MELODIC VOCALS, ROD HAMDALLAH STANDS POISED TO TAKE THIS SHOW ON THE ROAD… AND AROUND THE WORLD! BECAUSE, FOR ROD, HUNGER IS HIS MAIN HALLMARK. IT IS AN UNDENIABLE QUALITY IN HIS SOUL.
