Christian Sparks and the Beatnik Bandits are a new breed of classic American musician. Armed with a rock and roll attitude and one hell of a story to tell, this three-piece band from Austin Texas is out to prove that Folk music isn’t dead.
The Beatnik Bandits are quickly solidifying their place in the world of storytellers.
There’s a charm in the simplicity of the group’s music, but a distinct power in the lyricism that resonates long after the music stops.
In March of 2018 the band released their first ep, a self-titled five track project. After the release the band quickly hit the road on a summer tour spanning from Texas through Oklahoma, Arkansas and Louisiana. The band’s first single “Old Ghost” has found its way to the first finalists position in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest (Session 1, 2018).
