Luella and the Sun w/Paul Burch
Build a group around seasoned and versatile players like guitarist Joe McMahan, bassist Adam Bednarik (Cortney Tidwell) and drummer Jon Radford (Charles Walker and The Dynamites) and you’re going to get something interesting. Put singer-songwriter Melissa Mathes’ fiery, gut-wrenching vocals at the center, and you get Luella and the Sun, a prowling panther of a band that lopes along under a canopy of blues and brooding N’awlins R&B, waiting to ambush you with piercing riffs and haunting hooks. Their new single was recorded by McMahan (who has also worked with Paul Burch) and mixed by superstar producer Tchad Blake. Since Burch’s initial Hank Williams-and-Buck Owens-influenced records rode the cutting edge of the renewed interest in traditional country, he has steadily moved to incorporate more early rock ’n’ roll and swampy R&B into his style. While 2012’s collaboration with The Waco Brothers, Great Chicago Fire, shows Burch has the ability to stomp with the best of ’em, his solo efforts display the unassuming eloquence lent by his masterful touch and phrasing.
