Desdimona is the brainchild of Torin Franklin (vox, guitar). Accompanied by JD Brunson (upright bass) and David Webster (banjo), Desdimona weaves Roots Music reminiscent of Bluegrass and Folk with modern lyrical turns and driving rhythms. The last three years have born an early cult following. The project is responding by offering Desdimona to the international community. The Look Alive EP was wrought from raw life experience.

Nail down the roof. Nail down the floor. The ecstatic banjo ringing over the chugging bass provide the perfect backdrop for Torin’s mournful-to-victorious vocals. The show takes the listener through the range of emotions. Get ready to ride the train home with The Devil and go out in a blaze of glory at the Taylor County Line. This is Desdimona.
