BAND BIO

In 2007, guitarist Carl Eddy, bassist Matt West and vocalist Adrienne West joined forces to form The West-Eddy Trio, an acoustic act heralded by fans of the sound as “folk metal”. For four years, the Trio wrote together and gigged in many of the smaller clubs of Rhode Island and Massachusetts. In 2011, they felt it was time to evolve to another level and added percussionist Don “DC" Culp, Motif Magazine’s “2010 Percussionist of the Year” and Rhode Island Music Hall of Fame inductee (Steve Smith & The Nakeds, 2013). To compliment the Trio’s unique style, Culp designed the Dun Dun Percussion set, the first known of its kind, which is a drum kit made entirely out of African Hand drums. Meld-
ing the essence of ‘60s and‘70s classic rock, blues, and New Orleans R&B, Longshot Voodoo combines the very best of acoustic rock, blues, folk and original music while entertaining audiences with their infectious rhythms and jams.

In 2013, Longshot Voodoo released their first EP, "Zen Cave Mojo" and played a spotlight set at the Unity Concerts garnering rave reviews and front page coverage on the Providence Journal Bulletin. In 2014, the band headlined for a standing room only crowd at the Courthouse Center for the Arts in the "Halloween Recovery Concert". Longshot Voodoo was nominated for the Motif Music Awards 2015 Best Americana Act. In 2016, Longshot Voodoo was the opening act at the 19th Annual Rhythm & Roots Festival. Last year, Adrienne was nominated for Best Female Vocalist in the Motif Music Awards. 

April 2019: Longshot Voodoo has released the culmination of the past two years' writing and production, Voodoo Radio, their first full-length album. Including influences of New Orleans music, jazz, blues, rock, and even 80's pop, the pseudo-concept album, Voodoo Radio tells stories while proudly represent those influences that have fueled Longshot Voodoo's ongoing evolution.
