Band Bio

Charleston, SC’s Dangermuffin is an eclectic quartet that weaves lyrical themes of sea, sun, and spiritual connection with Americana, Island influenced, Folk and Jam grooves. The band's live show swims between tasty acoustic, and rockin’ electric sounds.On the band’s 6th and latest release, ‘Heritage,’ Dangermuffin reaches into their creative arsenal to craft an album showcasing the band’s signature coastal-influenced grooves mixed with Americana sensibilities and Appalachian fingerpicking. The album’s lyrics contemplate the universal human connection to our ancestors, ancient traditions and symbols while yearning for humanity to get back to its roots. It is an audible showcase weaving introspective lyrics with catchy, nimble guitar riffs. Fittingly, the album’s soaring vocals were recorded in Charleston’s historic Unitarian Church, a National Historic Landmark built in 1772.

Press Quotes

“This band, pure in its intent and endlessly melodic in results, will reward you repeatedly for sharing with them their passionate quest to discover and augment heritage.” - No Depression

“This sixth album from Charleston, South Carolina’s Dangermuffin, is a revelation.” - PopDose 

With a more stripped-down sound than the band has ever had, Heritage boasts a breathtaking sonic simplicity, which allows for the songs’ beautiful, and also thought-provoking, lyrics to shine through nicely - Live Music News and Review

“Dangermuffin are simply an embodiment of a new consciousness building across their generation, where respect for the Earth and its healing powers outweigh the distractions of modern existence.” - Shows I Go To

“Dangermuffin hails from Charleston, S.C., and this album reflects the light and airy ways of the south. A little pickin’, a little grinnin’ and a lot of soul and groove have given Dangermuffin an album to be proud of” - NYS Music 

“It does make a lot of sense; Charleston is a warm, yet cool city with a lot of color and vibe to it, so it isn’t surprising that a band could take those natural elements of their home base, integrate it into their music and then start to add the nuances to really give themselves that something to make them stand out from the others.  Dangermuffin have managed to do it effortlessly and joyfully.” - PopDose

[Heritage] shows Dangermuffin’s parallel journey to find a newfound infrastructure in the band and the perpetually growing foundation of the human connection to music and the ocean. - Extra Chill 

Dangermuffin has a paradoxical sound. It feels like world music, yet it’s undeniably Americana. The conscious lyrics and island vibe draw parallels to Bob Marley’s music. - Tahoe OnStage
