Hailing from Palestine in Texas, this sextet of Southern rockers got their start when friends Cody Cannon and John Jeffers began learning the guitar together. Since then they’ve expanded their line-up with four more musicians, played festivals worldwide and had songs featured in TV shows such as Yellowstone. Inspired by Lynyrd Skynyrd and Waylon Jennings, they debuted with “Road To Life” in 2008.
Having enriched their bare-knuckle country-rock sound with gospel-styled backing singers and invigorating funky horns, their new single is a booze-drenched explosion of sonic TNT. Taken from their upcoming album “Tornillo”, expected on July 29th, it’s the wild guitars, potent drums and raw vocal grit telling a tragic story that give this genre-bending jam a high-voltage burst of phonic energy.
Born and raised in Wisconsin, this Nigerian-American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist grew up playing viola and singing in a jazz choir. She went on to experiment with piano and guitar and performed in an acapella group at University. Now Los Angeles-based and inspired by Mary Mary, Marvin Gaye and Nina Simone, she debuted her own soulful sound on “I Got It” last month.
Described by her as a persona love letter to haters in her life, her sophomore single makes a lyrical statement and wraps it in warm, opulent nostalgia. With smooth vibes blending classic soul with a touch of mellow jazz, it’s the gentle piano, soft percussion and soothing harmonies that create an ear-stroking melody. And with her feathery vocals, this luscious tune will have you lusting for more.
