“Dead Cures” is an alternative pop band from Nashville, TN. The Dead Cures have a distilled potent sound full of 90’s inspired drum grooves, punky Police style bass riffs, and melodic enlightened guitar playing, all topped with harmony laden female vocal leads. The band cut their teeth touring and recording in other indie rock bands across the US and Canada. After getting turned inside out, they found that the old ways of striving didn't work. "The ways of the old guard are dead and it's up to us to figure this whole mess of life out" says Sharon Junk, lead singer and bass guitarist. "We are a group of friends who came together to do something different" says Michael Kisak, guitarist, who cites Kings of Leon and the Strokes as influences for his guitar writing. The Dead Cures is Sharon Junk on bass and vocals, and Michael Kisak on guitar, with a touring drummer.

Recently Dead Cures was featured by the NPR Tiny Desk Contest during the Summer 2016 tour stop in Nashville, TN at the Basement East. You can also hear the band's single "Say Everything Now" on radio Lightning 100 WRLT in Nashville.
