The Tarlatans

A tarlatan is a specialized rag used to clean off a wood print or in this case, a colorful, yet raw and dirty Americana rock act from Charleston, SC. Based on the writings of guitarists and vocalists, Taylor McCleskey and Ryan Williams. The Tarlatans are an ingenious approach to staying along the fine line of a catchy pop rock, but still leaving room for the beauty of human imperfection and celebration of life and its highs and lows. McCleskey and Williams are brilliant poets who harmonize beautifully together and are truthful with every lyric, unafraid of admitting their faults and hardships. They possess and old country feel – especially visible in their ballads, but are transformed into their own sounds adding elements of bluegrass and folk rock with the help of other band members, Eric Mixon and Blake Shorter.
