Down is a heavy metal band from New Orleans that has been fusing stoner and doom metal since 1991. Often referred to as a supergroup, the band's core members are all in prominent metal bands including Pantera, Corrosion of Conformity, Crowbar and Eyehategod. Mostly by word of mouth and the passing around of the band's demo tape, Down attracted enough attention for its 1995 debut album NOLA, that the record went platinum and earned widespread critical acclaim in the metal community. Now hailed as a landmark album, the record spawned the bands first tour, though its members returned to their respective bands upon the group's return. Down returned in 2002 with Down II: A Bustle in Your Hedgerow, and has since continued to record and perform music.
Texas-born musician Joe Ely has played with everyone from Bruce Springsteen and Lyle Lovett to Uncle Tupelo and the Clash. Ely started his career in the seminal country-folk band The Flatlanders and has since released a string of well-received albums that explore everything from rock to honky-tonk. In his long and varied career, one constant has been the skillful consistency of both his performances and original compositions.
