Have Gun, Will Travel #1402

Matt Burke of Have Gun, Will Travel has been around the block with label and indie success with his bands over the years. As his previous band saw critical and airplay success, but not a comparable financial reward, his songwriting took a different turn and he forged ahead with Have Gun, Will Travel — initially a solo effort to let the new sounds have a platform, but ultimately becoming a band in itself. HGWT plays extensively throughout the Southeast and will reach much more of the nation this year, with runs joining Shooter Jennings, Railroad Earth, Country Fried Rock alum, Matt Woods and also The Whiskey Gentry, and Radiolucent. Burke is a talented songwriter and the band balances fun, upbeat music with more reflective tracks, not descending too much into SBM that is prevalent in the genre right now. Grab some friends, and go see Have Gun, Will Travel.

The Whiskey Gentry #1337

The Whiskey Gentry‘s second album, Holly Grove, sets the stage for this Atlanta band to break out of their Georgia confines and become a nationally known roots music band.  Lauren Staley’s lyrics and vocals are backed by a tight band of stellar players.  Their second album is the first that wholly originated during the lifespan of the band, and John Keane again coaxed the best from their talents, while changing up their recording methods from song to song, partially because of its piecemeal recording process over five months, and partially because the core of the band, husband and wife, Jason Morrow and Lauren Staley, were inspired by the Sound City documentary, and wanted to record some songs fully live.  Following up on a year of success, including their first European tour, The Whiskey Gentry will be touring much more in the coming year across the US.  Their high-energy live show should be on your must-see list.
