What sets Drunken Prayer apart from other neo-Americana artists may be that DP is not trying to be neo or Americana, not trying to do anything but let out a howl formed by life and the history of music. Just making music out of the reservoirs left by living and listening to humanity. Drunken Prayer makes an honest tune, an unironic narrative of the harsh and beautiful harmonies and discords every human faces: a kind of holy blues. There is a unique genuineness here born of pure inspiration.
Though Drunken Prayer is often Morgan Geer performing solo or with light accompaniment, the bigger group has at different times boasted an impressive roster of members from The Breeders, She & Him, The Wipers, Beck, Eels, The Reigning Sound and the backing bands of John Lee Hooker and Elliot Smith.
