Catch the Feature on The Bay Bridged
Premiere: Sioux City Kid – “Heartbreak Shakedown”

SIOUX CITY KID has returned with stellar new single, “Heartbreak Shakedown,” which has just premiered on The Bay Bridged. The track was recorded at Jack White’s Third Man Record Booth, and is out just in time for their April residency at Amnesia in San Francisco. Griffith’s growling vocals are laced with vibrant pianos, harmonious melodies, and intricate guitar riffs. With heavy doses of American and Delta Blues, Griffin unleashes his trademark growl alongside his intense lyrics throughout the song.

Sioux City Kid grew from the work of singer/songwriter Jared Griffin and quickly became a juggernaut in the San Francisco music scene, sharing bills with classics such as Emmylou Harris and Spoon while packing houses in the best venues in San Francisco with their own high energy headlining act.

Sioux City Kid will also be embarking on a lengthy tour that kicks off this May. Leading into the shows is a month long residency at Amnesia in San Francisco, which will take place every Tuesday at 9pm.
