At the crossroads of East Houston and 2nd Avenue in NYC, The Dead Exs summon the gods of Blues and Rock & Roll recording LIVE in the studio with dp (David Pattillo) on electric slide guitar and vocals and Wylie Wirth on the skins. In July 2011, The Dead Exs were voted “NYC Artist of The Month” by The Deli Magazine.

In just a year the band has released a full length debut, opened shows for The Del Fuegos renuion tour, generated buzz from blogs, been licensed by several skate and surf brands, been featured at John Varvatos Thursday Night Live in NYC, and received thousands of views on Youtube. Their single “More Stuff” is charted Top 5 on Twitter.

Pattillo’s love for the upbeat raw recordings of Howlin’ Wolf and the garage rock of The Sonics inspired him to go back to his roots and record a true to life thrashing blues record. Pattiillo is a producer with a credit list from Alanis Morrissette to the The Hold Steady, The Black Crowes to the Beastie Boys and last year produced the Reni Lane debut for Universal Motown including the song “Place For Us” which was featured on several TV shows, remixed by a handful of electronic producers, and favorited on viral sites like Hype Machine and Twitter. Wirth has toured extensively in Europe and the US with various bands such as acclaimed blues artist Will Scott, and the Warner Bros act Sweet Lizard Illtet.

"There is a reverence in and of Christopher Paul Stelling that is immediately perceptible. It's striking and it's powerful. It's a draw. It's a magnetism that sucks you right into the landscape that he sees. You see, Stelling has these eyes and a way with his motions that let's you know that not a second goes by him without it plucking all of his strings, without it setting off the alarms in his ears, without it caressing him on the leg, rubbing up against his cheek, rummaging through his hair, whispering, kissing and holding him just a little bit, even if it's for the shortest time. He doesn't stare. No, it may feel like that at times, but it's more intense than a stare. It's an actual, compassionate engagement with whomever he's with, whenever and wherever they are at the time. It's a sensation that makes you feel as if you're submerged within his own private hot well, down in the sensational darkness where the eyes and mind can work overtime, where they can connect through unshared experiences and figments." - Daytrotter
