Coming together in the late 70s and featuring members of Boston garage legends THE LYRES, Barrence Whitfield & The Savages came to prominence in the mid-80s thanks to their high-energy live sets, including a show-stealing performance at Glastobury in ’87. After diverting his time to other projects, such as country music and film scores, Whitfield reconvened The Savages in 2010 for the albums Savage Kings followed Dig Thy Savage Soul in 2013.
