Slackstring is the sound of Beach Town, California. Four guys born and raised in Manhattan Beach, surfing and jamming their homespun blend of classic rock, acoustic blues and reggae. Influenced by the music of Bob Marley, The Dead, The Doors, Bob Dylan as well as local South Bay punk rock, their sound has been described as “Pure Feel-Good Music” by LA Newspaper The Daily Breeze.
Slackstring is the collaboration of songwriters Eric Lyman and Gavin Heaney on guitars and vocals, accompanied by Matt Muir on drums and Brett Thomas on bass. Truly a self made band, Slackstring has sold countless copies of their homemade albums and have played with heroes Sublime, Toots and The Maytalls, Jack Johnson, The Wailers and many more in venues internationally.
