This week I complete the Best of 2015 countdown, featuring albums #20 through #1 on the list.
Check out the Best of 2015 in Americana Music and discover your next favorite band.
Eilen Jewell tops the Freeform American Roots (FAR) chart 190 and it makes me very happy to see her getting the recognition she deserves.
blues from Eilen Jewell, boogie from Woody Pines, country/soul from The Deslondes, ameripolitan from Dale Watson, new Willie Nelson & Merle Haggard
Sundown Over Ghost Town by Eilen Jewell takes her pearls & cowboy boots vibe to Small Town, USA, and gives us a charming, poignant slice of Americana.
Eilen Jewell plays three tracks from her Sundown Over Ghost Town album, talks about returning to Boise, and the new member of their lineup. Also on this episode, brand new soul music from Beth McKee. A really nice debut from a band out of Asheville called Tellico. New rock & roll from Dan Montgomery. Another track from that knock out Alabama Shakes album. We’ve also got new California country from Grant Langston, A new string band tune from April Verch, another southern rock track from Jimbo Mathus and a lot more in this two hour episode.
Country rock from Parker McCollum, Tin Pan Alley jazz from Anne McCue, and New Orleans brass band jazz, torch singer blues from Eilen Jewell
“Sea Of Tears” is a perfect example of Eilen Jewell’s style. Her voice reminds you of those bluesy torch-singers of yesteryear with just a little bit of twang in her voice.
No one does that little black dress, pearls, and cowboy boots thing better than Eilen Jewell, and she’s just released double CD, Live At The Narrows
#1 – Carrboro’s very own New Town Drunks playing music from their debut CD and New Orleans style soul from Brother Joscephus. Plus, bootleg recording of Eilen Jewell at Shakori Hills.
