Thirteen is called “unlucky” by the unimaginative. The Burning Dirty Band prefers to embrace other aspects of this auspicious number as we celebrate our thirteenth birthday. The bonus in the baker’s dozen. A boy becoming a man. White stars on a flag that launched a revolution.

Since the spring of 2000, the Burning Dirty Band has been restlessly experimenting in Virginia’s valley country, proudly crafting a distinctive rock sound as trends have risen and faded in the meantime. Original songwriting has always been the focus, and thirteen years together has sharpened our senses and fostered a tightly knit group dynamic that can only come with such extensive experience.

The thumping kick-drum heartbeat of rhythm and blues. The ferocious snarl of punk. The soundwave-warping surrealism of electronic music. The keen wit and genre-bending of so many of our musical heroes: David Bowie, The Flaming Lips, The Clash, Pavement, Beck. We’ve distilled all of these influences into an original blend and allowed it to age for thirteen years. Come drink it up with us.

Jeremy Cowgill, a native of Winchester, VA performs soulful, gritty, singer-songwriter music. His songs reflect upon his life experiences and imaginations as he tells stories of people struggling with bad habits in bad places, underdog situations, and the love of places he’s been!
