Ike Reilly

For fans of:Bob Dylan, The Clash, Frank Turner, Drive-By Truckers

Chicago's Ike Reilly is the leader of the ferocious Rock and Roll band The Ike Reilly Assassination. The former hotel doorman and gravedigger writes songs that are dark, defiant, touching and often hilarious. His persona as a solo performer is somewhere between Lenny Bruce and Woody Guthrie but his songs are wholly original. His perspective is distinctly from the outside and the listener never quite knows if Reilly really ever wants in.

Ike's next record, Born On Fire, will be released in the spring of 2015.
