Waylon Speed was created by Noah Crowther, Reverend Chad Hammaker, Kelly Ravin and Justin Crowther after playing together at a local honky-tonk in Burlington, Vermont. Three days and one practice later, Waylon Speed was born. While Waylon Speed is not influenced by mainstream music, they integrate each member's individual influences to achieve a truly unique genre all of its own. They have won awards from both the New England Music Awards for "Vermont's Best Band," and Seven Days newspaper's annual Daisy Award for "Best Americana Band." They write, release and distribute their music independently. Named after the guitarist Rev. Chad Hammaker’s son, Waylon, the band has become a family owned and operated enterprise. Waylon Speed released their second full-length record Kin on April 29th, 2014, followed by a national tour. They have offered support for large-name outfits, and was tour support for Lynyrd Skynyrd in November, 14'. - Artist website
