Washing D.C.’s The Deadmen is a collective lead by songwriters Josh Read, Justin Jones, Justin Hoben and rounded out by Miles Nasta and John Hutchins. All members come from different backgrounds bringing not just one singular perspective to crafting songs whether it be integrating folk, rock, or soul into the mix.

Recently, they completed their debut EP together that will be seeing the light of day in the very near future. The first single is the folk-rock track “Let Your Fingers Rule.” It is a refreshing change of pace in a world where songwriting and substance has become second fiddle to flash and aesthetics. According to singer and lyricist Joshua Read, the song is “a reflection on self discipline and friendship, love and circumstance, life and death and the profound depth of value.” Which is exactly what songwriting should be. Telling stories that everyone can relate to. Have a listen below.
