Daddy w/New Country RehabPop/Rock
Over the past 30 years, give or take, Will Kimbrough and Tommy Womack have lent their wry humor and phenomenal playing and writing talents to a shedload of artists, from their initial forays in Will and The Bushmen and Government Cheese to Jimmy Buffett, Todd Snider, Bill Lloyd and dozens more. Their project DADDY, formed in 2009 and revisited between other gigs, marks their first collaboration since The Bis-Quits in the early ’90s, and we’re psyched to get another dose of it. Fretting over the definition of “Americana” has done little to clarify the term, so rather than go there, we’ll call DADDY a stew of every earthy musical root we have — gospel, rock, blues and more — but focused on evolution rather than preservation. The duo will be backed by their full band, and joined by Toronto-area country/folk/popsters New Country Rehab. Comparisons in the Canadian press to The Avett Brothers and Mumford and Sons frankly puzzle us, as NCR’s contemporary sound rocks harder than either, with much less melodrama.
