* Official Bio *
Ever get the feeling you’ve been lied to?
Zach Mobley and Ty Clark grew up in the bowels of rural Oklahoma. They coped with the oppression of the Bible-Belt in different ways. Zach (guitar/vocals) spent most of his adolescence holed up listening to punk rock and plotting his escape. Ty (drums) also took solace in music but fell victim to the opiod epidemic that plagued his community.
After a stint in one of the state’s many overcrowded and underfunded prisons, Ty reclaimed control of his life and responded to an ad placed by Zach. The two quickly realized they shared similar tastes in music and a similar distaste for the hypocrisy surrounding them. Another small town pariah, Vance Young (bass), was added later to complete the lineup.

The Bourgeois (pronounced booj-wah) are an alternative rock band from Tulsa, OK. Musically, the band draws inspiration from a wide variety of artists; the sonic rush of Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins, the disenfranchised melodicism of indie rock stalwarts like The Smiths and Violent Femmes, and a dash of aural post-punk weirdness, a la The Talking Heads and The Pixies, are all keys to the band’s signature sound. The band prides themselves on their ability to channel their influences without sounding antiquated or derivative.
The group hit the ground running with their first single, Perverting the American Dream, which was accompanied by a video produced by Delo Creative (The Flaming Lips, Miley Cyrus, Broncho). Perverting the American Dream has since racked up over 200,000 plays on music streaming service Jamendo.
They followed with the Steve Haigler (The Pixies, Brand New) produced album, We’re Still In The Gutter, But Some Of Us Are Looking At The Stars. The Bourgeois have steadily built a following through their energetic live performances, creative music videos, and sardonic sense of humor.
“With an absolutely smashing rock sound, The Bourgeois are becoming one of the best hidden treasures of alternative rock from the United States.” – Jamendo
“The Bourgeois has become a Kings favorite. This alt rock band falls between Cage The Elephant and Social Distortion.” – Kings of A&R
