Homemade Sin were originally set up as a backing band for ex-Georgia Satellites singer/songwriter/guitarist Dan Baird.
The initial line-up consisted of ex Satellites bandmates Mauro Magellan on drums and Keith Christopher on Bass, with Ken McMahan on lead guitar. Both Mauro and Keith had played on Dan’s solo albums ‘Love Songs for the Hearing Impaired’ and ‘Buffalo Nickel’. Ken had played with Dan on his live album ‘Redneck Savant’ under the name Dan Baird and the Sofa Kings’.
A change of line-up in 2008, when Ken McMahan left to be replaced by Jason & the Scorchers guitarist Warner E. Hodges, also signalled a change in focus of the band. This was now to be a band, and not a Dan Baird solo project. New songs were written as a band and an eponymous studio album recorded, with both Keith and Warner taking their turn at lead vocal slots.
