Smooth Talkin Perverts
Smooth Talkin Perverts are 3 brothers from South St. Louis. Graham Zempel – oldest bro – guitar, lead vocals. Jack Zempel – middle bro – bass guitar, vocals. Joe Zempel – little bro – drums, vocals. Raised in a family of small-time (yet accomplished) stage and studio musicians, they came together after doing time with different music scenes: from hard-core punk to progressive jazz, to writing and producing beats for hip-hop artists in LA. Their sound has evolved into a hard rock “jive-punk” mutation that draws from metal, blues, jazz, funk, roots, and hip-hop. Their lyrics run from brutally honest to sardonic and sexy.
