Creating Good Vibes Music for the discerning listener, Psychodillo combines Bluegrass, Rock, Folk, Blues, & Psychedelia into a super spicy Musical Gumbo that very much reflects the adventurous spirit of our American heritage. One might call that Americana, & that's fine with us... if you like Americana... but if you don't like Americana, then it's definitely not Americana. ;-) Perhaps it's Acoustic Dance Music, or ADM for short. Why don't you give it a listen & decide for yourself?

The music of Psychodillo can be considered post-modern, with respect for tradition and an eye towards the future. Some influences will be obvious as you may be reminded of the Carter Family or the Stanley Brothers, or even Neil Young or The Gratefule Dead, while others influences are a bit more obscure. Did they just cover Townes Van Zandt, Motown, & Roxy Music on the same night? Although the influences are very strong, Psychodillo is not a mimicking band; their sound is very much their own & although it may tug at your heart as something familiar that you can't quite place, you have not heard anything quite like this before.

Psychodillo song lyrics take a journey through a few seasons of life... joy, pain, redemption, genuine, earthy, imperfect, & beautiful, with just a hint of tongue in cheek humor. While their primary concentration is the song, adding in their impeccable instrumental prowess culminates in a combination guaranteed to put a smile on your face, touch your heart, ignite your imagination, soothe your soul, & get you out of your chair to shake it. Stop shaking your chair! That's not what we meant & you know it. We meant dancing, of course. Please put the chair down before someone gets hurt.

We invite you to listen to a few tracks available on the music page of this site. If you like what you hear, please purchase something to show your support, & come on out to some live shows.

If you're into adventure & exploring, then experiencing a Psychodillo Live Show is highly recommended for you, as these shows are where Psychodillo tends to shine exceptionally bright. Songs get stretched out with improvisation, taking chances, seeing where we end up, providing an opportunity for magic. The energy of the crowd influences where the music goes, so you're not just an audience, but more participants with a slightly different role, equally important in influencing our collective experience. In addition to the songs available on CD, you'll get to hear new songs, old songs, covers, & instrumentals. Influences become more evident, with hints & teases during the jams. It's a very different experience from listening to a formal release on CD or download. We encourage you to experience both, as often as possible.
