From Knoxville, Tennessee, supported by his band, The Greater Good, Josiah Atchley, marine turned musician, is taking the music scene by storm! With a high energy show, full of unpredictable jams, one is guaranteed to leave a fan. With Frank Sheadrick Jr on drums, Dave Becher on bass, Brandon Bowman on saxophone, Tommie John on lead, Matthew Kear on keys, and Josiah Atchley in the front on rhythm guitar and vocals, they combine for lethal dose of heavy rock/blues/reggae vibes with a hint of pop and whatever other seasoning the moment may call for.
The Greater Good has made their presence heard on the entire east coast. With sets in Bonnaroo, Hillfest, Rhythm & Blooms, and BlankFest the band has transitioned into a full fledged stage band. They have shared the stage and opened for several major touring acts, such as Tom Keifer (Cinderella), Fastball, and the multi-platinum, international touring band Kansas.
The band has released three major singles, including award winning “Real Mother Lover,” “Gypsy,” and “Broken Man.” As well as receiving an award for best Funk/Rock album/EP, released in Knoxville, 2017. The Greater Good also re-released Josiah’s 2014 EP “Scoundrel” as a full ensemble, ensuring fans that you would always be able to listen to their fresh sound. The band has continued exploring other states and bigger venues as they build upon their previous success. Watch out for all news involving The Greater Good, and be prepared for some fresh new tunes as singles and an EP are in the works for late 2018!
