Casey Miller and Megan Go-Go Wise are the power duo known as Barnyard Stompers. The two have collectively played in many legendary roots music outfits such as The Hillbilly Hellcats, The Bop Kings, Vibes on Velvet, The Kozmik Kowboyz and Buckwild. They have teamed together in order to combine several generations of Outlaw Country, Texas Stomp, Blues and Rockabilly, creating a new sub-genre known as Backwoods Twang. Barnyard Stompers definitely have a style all their own; however, they hold true to the stylings of the pioneers of roots music such as Johnny Cash, Tex Ritter, Bukka White, Blind Willie McTell, Bill Monroe, Roy Rogers, Waylon Jennings, Carl Perkins, Hanks Williams and more recent artists like Scott H. Biram, Flat Duo Jets, Black Keys, Dropkick Murphys and Junior Brown.
In less than a year, Barnyard Stompers have released a seventeen track debut CD, The Way-Gone, Wild and Rockin' Sounds of Barnyard Stompers and have played more than one hundred shows. The duo has performed in front of fans in over fourteen states. Their new release, The Honeymoon Is Over, is scheduled to be available in mid April, 2013. The Stompers will be touring Europe in October and November of 2013.
Casey Miller plays a mean guitar and harmonica as he sings like Johnny Cash, Hank Williams, Elvis Presley and Robert Johnson all rolled into one. He also goofs around on the kazoo which always gets a laugh from fans. Megan Wise plays all things percussive and has a big, full sound as she pounds the skins in her very own style that must be heard and seen. She also sings in the style of Kitty Wells and keeps a steady rhythm on acoustic guitar. The Stompers certainly hold their own and the duo runs circles around most four or five piece bands. Anyone who is into real, rocking, down-home music owes it to themselves to check out Barnyard Stompers.
