DISPATCH — formed by Chadwick Stokes and Brad Corrigan — has forged its own path outside the mainstream music industry as one of the most successful bands in the roots rock scene. With 8 studio albums and 5 live albums, and 25 years of touring and festivals, the band has become one of biggest success stories in independent music history, selling out three nights at Madison Square Garden and drawing over 100,000 fans to a massive outdoor show in their adopted hometown of Boston without any traditional radio or major label support. The band recently released their 8th studio album, Break Our Fall, to critical acclaim.
In the summer of 2022, DISPATCH hit the road with O.A.R. for their first-ever North American Co-Headline Tour. Joined by special guest G. Love, the bands weaved their way throughout the US playing 37 cities: Los Angeles, San Diego, Denver, Atlanta, Cleveland, Nashville, Boston, Chicago, New York, Philly, Austin, Virginia Beach and more. While the bands have previously played on the same bill, this tour marks the first time the two have shared a tour together.
Throughout their rise, DISPATCH has taken every opportunity to use their success for good, launching charitable organizations to address social justice issues, raising funds and awareness for domestic hunger, education reform, sexual harassment in the music industry, and organizations serving children and communities in Zimbabwe. Chadwick Stokes’ Calling All Crows joins bands and fans together in collective activism, while Brad Corrigan’s Love Light + Melody helps amplify the stories of children who live in extreme poverty.
Living somewhere in-between modern catharsis and American myth, Griffin William Sherry’s roots continue to grow strong in the ever evolving genres of Folk, Americana and Rock & Roll.
