Dead Man Watching is an Italian band that blends Alt-Folk, Alt-Country, British Rock, and West Coast Slowcore to create a distinctive style all their own. Far from the noise of the music industry, they write and self-produce heartfelt songs with English-lyric vocals, and their first two EPs, "Dead Man Watching" and "Dead Man Is Coming to Town", received rave reviews from the Italian press. Their songs have been featured in several movies, including the mainstream Italian film "Goodbye Mr. Zeus," which was nationally distributed in 2010.
Dead Man Watching uses a wide range of instruments and styles to create a unique sound, including Beatles-type arrangements, 60's garage guitars, vintage keyboards and FXs, 90's Alternative Rock, all mixed together with a classic acoustic Folk sound. Much of their work shows influences from old-school singer songwriters like Bob Dylan, Paul Simon, Joni Mitchell, Neil Young, and Gram Parsons, as well as recent artists like Ryan Adams, Elliott Smith, Wilco, and the Avett Brothers.
