“Like a symphony of croaking toads and cicadas emerging from the backwoods of southern Georgia, comes our toe-tapping, back porch picking, original swamp grass music”
Collectively, BoDean and The Poachers have one impressive resume even though they're still technically newcomers to the Georgia music scene.
Lead guitarist and singer-songwriter, Brandon Fox taught himself guitar at age 9 and shortly after his brother Todd recognized that unique talent and brought it to their father’s attention, an accomplished musician. By age 15, Brandon was playing with distinguished musicians 30 years his senior and considered one of the best guitarists in the region. Brandon's distinct sound has made him a staple of the Bo Henry Band for the past two decades, who has opened up for The Marshall Band and played prolific venues such as The Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.
The other half of the band consists of Shane Brown and Chris Overman who are also a part of BoDean and The Poachers & The Evergreen Family Band that has played amongst the likes of critically acclaimed artists such as Chris Stapleton, Zac Brown, the Travelin’ McCourys, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Del McCoury, and David Grisman.
Brown started out playing electric bass with local band Automatic Mojo, then took up the standup bass when he was invited to join the Evergreen Family Band. Overman performed as a one-man band playing bass, hi-hat, guitar, and harmonica for years until he met Brown in 2016 who invited him to bring his talents to The EFB. The new band is set apart from their former groups by the fact that they only perform original songs. BoDean & the Poachers is a place for these singer-songwriters to alchemize a legacy all their own through the creation of their own distinct sound.
