Overview: War Chief has been compared to everything from the gritty, classic roots-rock sounds of The Allman Brothers and Drive-By Truckers to the more modern indie- and folk-rock sounds of Spoon, Wilco and Blitzen Trapper.
The four-piece Americana-rock group formed in early 2011 and within a year was receiving accolades from media critics, local music venues, and live music fans for its debut, self-titled EP release.
War ChiefÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s accomplishments continued in February 2012 as it won its Semifinal round of the Arkansas Times Musicians Showcase and went on to compete in the Finals, which each year includes just the top five bands in the state Ã¢â‚¬â€ out of hundreds of applicants for the contest.
The Arkansas TimesÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ music critic Robert Bell wrote of War Chief:
Ã¢â‚¬Å“Classic rock diehards will dig the Allman-esque guitar heroics on Ã¢â‚¬ËœWelcome to the Real World,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ while the rollicking Ã¢â‚¬ËœStand Watie,Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ Artist Site
