Music Scene: Alabama Shakes

June 2015

Hey there! It’s been a minute since I posted for Music Scene. I’m happy to discover this southern rock band, the Alabama Shakes.

Since forming in 2009 in Athens, Alabama, this band has been on the music radar. With the soulful and rocking Brittany Howard leading on vocals, followed by bass guitar Zac Cockrell, Heath Fogg on guitar and backing vocals and lastly, Steve Johnson on drums, the Alabama Shakes have cemented themselves in what I call blues rock, with r & b soul.

They released the four-song ep Alabama Shakes in September 2011 and their first full-length album, Boys & Girls, which was made available in its entirety for live streaming from the Internet on April 1, 2012. Their new album, Sound & Color was just released back in April of this year.

I know that this band will be here for a good long while. Check out their website

You can find them on iTunes, Spotify, Tidal, and Google Play.
