Introducing… Planet Ink

Planet Ink is a blues influenced, hard rock group from Muscle Shoals Alabama, founded in 2005 and composed of brothers Michael and Alexander Bowling and their cousin James Sherrill.

Their unique style has developed over the last 6 years through steadily playing festivals, headlining smaller venues and opening for internationally known acts. During that time they have written, recorded and released two full albums and one EP of original material.

Planet Ink have crafted a no frills rock sound that showcases their high energy performance and loud, in your face songs that combine searing rock riffs and catchy melodies. Their music is delivered with the precision more commonly found in seasoned musicians two to three times their age, yet they still command the youthful exuberance necessary to pound out unbridled rock and roll. Planet Ink is becoming a force to reckon with as they fire up stages across the U.S.

My 2 cents:

This band was introduced to me by Eric from The Heavy Eyes as a band that they have played with before. The songs that they have up on their Facebook/Reverbnation page were pretty damn cool so I bought both their full length and EP from CDBaby. I have yet to listen to them but it’s pretty high on my list. The songs sampled show some attitude and even some swagger. Their blues infused rock filled with some sweet riffs make for some cool and interesting music.
