The Atkinsons formed in the fall of 2003 in Richmond, VA. Their main focus was to write and perform their own brand of original music, as well as incorporating select cover songs that complement their Americana style. Rooted in rock, touched by country, and rich in harmonies, The Atkinsons merge their signature sound with bittersweet tales of woe and heartbreak.

Their originals are written with a hardcore honesty that chronicles Americas lost and lonely souls and their life struggles and turmoil. Influences range from Whiskeytown, Old 97s and Son Volt - to Old Crow Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers and Scott Miller - to Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Rolling Stones and Nirvana. The soulful lyrics and whiskey-stained vocals of Dickie Wood are complemented with three- part harmonies offered up by Jamie Wood and Kris Krull.

Kris also gives the band a new edge on drums working with Ricky Breland on bass to create a pounding rhythm section. Combine Mike Ferry's fiddle with Jeff Williams mandolin, and you got a potent mix of rock and country creating one kickass rockin' Americana band.

The Atkinsons are excited to announce their eagerly anticipated debut CD entitled "American Gothic"! American Gothic is more than just an eleven- song compilation. The new CD actually tells a story from start to finish. The first track introduces you to our nameless tragic hero. Throughout the CD you see him grow from a little boy to adulthood. And through a series of bad decisions and bad luck streaks, we eventually come to his death by the end of the CD. Although the lyrical content is dark, the music and melodies are upbeat. From country swing to straight- up rock, the mandolin and fiddle soaked songs keep your fingers snapping and toes tapping.
