Air in the song, great gtr. Singer holds back. Song builds.

I've been a fan ever since YouTube recommended one of their basement videos. They are such a breath of fresh air in a stale music industry.

"You Aint Alone" conjures up some old school Big Brother and the Holding Company

I'm smitten. They bring it real and raw, brothers and sisters

I've listened/watched them since early on b4 they were big on radar.

But the singing was often to all-out from the git go. Good but too much to me.

This song I posted has 'air' in it, some nice pauses and guitar centric in a cool twist!
It builds too.

Agreed, I've liked everything I've seen on TV so far. Very impressed.

My g/f has become a huge fan since I turned her on to them a few months ago. Fresh in an old-school kinda way. We watched their live broadcast last weekend on Axis TV, good ol' soul & rock. Lots of great music coming out of Alabama these days, it was a matter of time before one of these great artist got more exposure.

They are touring right now and will be in Toronto in June.

Oh, and it's really, really great to see "different" music become popular.

After a couple of yrs of dismissing them due to feeling many of their songs scream it out too much (a la Janis)...
this did win me over.
