Reigning Sound

Founded by Memphis blues-punk legend Greg Cartwright -- a former member of the Oblivians, the Compulsive Gamblers, and '68 Comeback -- Reigning Sound fuse the hot-wired energy of garage rock with the deep emotional resonance of classic soul music in a manner that suggests a cross between the early Rolling Stones and the Sonics. Featuring Cartwright on vocals and guitar, Jeremy Scott on bass, Greg Roberson on drums, and Alex Greene on keyboards and guitar, Reigning Sound made their recorded debut with a three-song 7" in May of 2001; their first full-length album, Break Up Break Down, was released a month later on Sympathy for the Record Industry.

In August of 2002, the group upped the rock quotient on its second album (and first for In the Red), Time Bomb High School, and the group landed a high-profile gig opening for Swedish garage wunderkinds the Hives on their North American tour. Alex Greene dropped out as a full-time group member by the time 2004's Too Much Guitar was released, though he did appear on the disc as a guest musician, and the band followed its release with more touring, both as a headliner and once again as opener for the Hives. The band also gained another well-known champion in Little Steven Van Zandt, who gave the band frequent airplay on his syndicated radio show. In September 2005 Reigning Sound released Home for Orphans through Sympathy for the Record Industry. It featured reworked versions of Too Much Guitar material along with some unreleased tracks. They also recorded and released two live albums in 2005, Live at Maxwell's and Live at Goner Records. After a long break from recording under their own name (though Cartwright and the new lineup of bassist David Wayne Gay, drummer Lance Wille, and keyboardist Dave Amels backed ex-Shangri-La Mary Weiss on her 2007 album Dangerous Game), the band resurfaced in 2009 with a new studio record for In the Red, Love and Curses.

In 2012, after Cartwright had detoured into touring and recording with a reunited Oblivians, he assembled a new lineup of Reigning Sound, with Dave Amels returning on keyboards alongside new members Mike Catanese on guitar, Benjamin Trokan on bass, and Mikey Post on drums. Emphasizing a more mature and soulful approach, this edition of Reigning Sound rolled into Brooklyn's Daptone Studio to record Shattered, which became the band's first release for Merge Records in July 2014. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Great band. Even better live band.
not bad not bad... I'm liking already, still listening for that memphis sound...
touch of dylan in a good way
the reigning sound bear NO RESEMBLANCE at all to: yogi, jesus & mary chain, brakesbrakes b r a k e s . . . you got some kinks to work out in your software... HOME FOR ORPHANS is representati v e of ONLY ONE SIDE of a very diversely talented band and songwriter! HOME FOR ORPHANS and BREAK UP BREAK DOWN might be smiliar BUT TIME BOMB HIGH SCHOOL and TOO MUCH GUITAR are vastly more loud and rocking - and many tracks on TOO MUCH GUITAR hearken back to the noisy garage trash thrash of the OBLIVIANS.
