Miriam/Tad Overbaugh

Miriam and Tad Overbaugh live at the Lizard Lounge!

In 2009, when multi-award-winning singer-songwriters Amy Fairchild and Carla Ryder decided to combine their voices and join forces to start a band, MIRIAM was born. They recruited the coveted multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Andy Santospago, whose music traverses a long and winding road from classical, jazz, acoustic finger style, Latin, bluegrass and folk, and rock. Over the next few years, they would pluck up talented drummer about town Ian McMillan and monster bass player Jeff St. Pierre. The group garnered a loyal following by playing a monthly residency the last Tuesday of each month at Toad in Porter Square (Cambridge, MA) cultivating a sound and creating true alchemy among them. They have been described as a rollickin’ blend of Americana-infused countrified roots-rock with the focus on the tight harmonies, catchy songs and superb playing….at times playful, at times moody. Mostly it’s boot-stompin,’ lead vocal swappin’, ass-kickin’ fun. Steve Morse, former critic of 30 years at The Boston Globe says, ” Music for the sheer pleasure of it… effervescent harmonies and melodic nirvana.”


ad Overbaugh & the Late Arrivals are a 4-piece, heartland inspired, rock ‘n’ roll band from Boston, MA. Driving down that highway of roots-rock, alt-country, midwestern tinged power-pop and classic country influences. Tad Overbaugh’s songs fall somewhere between the twang of Steve Earle, the gritty dive bar pop of Twin/Tone and chimey, hook-filled songwriting of Tom Petty.

The collective band members have opened up for The Drive-By Truckers, Son Volt, The Bottle Rockets, Cracker, Slobberbone, Robbie Fulks, Tim Easton, and Will Hoge.
