M.C. Taylor and Scott Hirsch have been active as Hiss Golden Messenger for seven years now, releasing five studio albums along the way. But their latest, Lateness of Dancers, has brought the duo more exposure than ever as evidenced last night when Hiss Golden Messenger made its network TV debut on Late Show with David Letterman. Taylor, Hirsch, and their backing band made the most of the appearance, performing a rollicking rendition of “Southern Grammar”. Check out the replay below.
