Born in August 2009, The Burning Angels were founded by Mark Cunningham (Paco Weed, The Welfare Liners). Influenced by songwriters from his childhood, Cunningham strives to write an eclectic sound from the band of angels by incorporating roots/americana music into a southern gothic tone.
The Burning Angels...a band that in any manifestation exudes everything that the dirty south evokes in its frailty. The Burning Angels combines traditional roots music with a harder edge that exposes heartache, laughter, love and struggles of the common southerner.
