Grammy-nominated Brother Dege (Django Unchained soundtrack) is one of the best-kept secrets in Louisiana; a musician, writer, artist, and heir to a long line of eccentric characters born and raised in the Deep South. Like the mad lovechild of Son House and Faulkner, Legg has burned a colorful trail to the Promised Land. Avoiding traditional career paths, he has spent as much time exploring the swamplands of his home state as he has forging his own brand of incendiary, “psyouthern” roots music. Since the late 90s, Dege has pushed slide guitar and southern roots music, kicking and screaming into the 21st century, melding elements of folk, Delta blues, psych, post-punk, and rock/metal into one beautiful whole that defies genre classification.
In 2012, famed film director Quentin Tarantino personally hand-picked Brother Dege’s song “Too Old to Die Young” to be featured prominently in the movie and soundtrack to Django Unchained. The song has since become something of an underground classic. Additionally, Brother Dege’s track “Hard Row To Hoe” has been featured theme song to Discovery Channel’s After The Catch, Nat-Geo Channel, and many others.
