Rod Hamdallah

With Fate McAfee

Hailing from Atlanta, GA, garage rocker Rod Hamdallah has been tearing up the southeast's vibrant music scene since before he was old enough to order his first drink.  At 16, Rod began soaking up the southern delta blues and garage rock sounds at a relentless pace; influenced by early soul, blues and garage rock, Rod took his sound to another level.  At 17, he started sharing the stage with influences such as Sean Costello, Dexter Romweber and more.

Rod's original musical elements are rooted in blues, garage and early soul.  Low-fidelity, dark storytelling and american roots music play a big part in the song writing.  He creates a sound that can be likened to artists such as, The Flat Duo Jets, Captain Beefheart and The Black Keys.


Fate McAfee began writing original music at the age of 20, recorded his first full length studio album at 22, and has played small festivals and coffee shops and dive bars everywhere from the Appalachian Mountains to the Mississippi River, from the streets of New Orleans to theaters in Kentucky.  He is from West Tennessee originally and typically plays solo, but collaborated with several talented musicians for his debut album "Little Bill & the Late Fees", recorded in Paducah, KY, where he currenlty resides.
