Alabama Shakes

Muscle Shoals-inspired, Athens, Alabama-based quartet Alabama Shakes formed in 2009 around the talents of Brittany Howard, Zac Cockrell, Steve Johnson, and Heath Fogg. Originally simply called the Shakes, the band's blend of fiery blues-rock and hard-hitting Southern soul drew comparisons to the Black Keys, Drive-By Truckers, the Detroit Cobras, and even Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings. The band released an eponymous debut EP in September 2011, with plans to record a full-length album later in the year. Released on ATO in 2012, Boys & Girls was produced and mixed by the band at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville. The album peaked at number six in the U.S., and earned three Grammy nominations, including Best New Artist and Best Rock Performance (for "Hold On") on its way to gold certification. The group took its time to record its second album, Sound & Color. Weirder and wilder than the debut, the sophomore set appeared to strong reviews in April 2015. ~ James Christopher Monger, Rovi

Thank you Austin City Limits! I know Alabama Shakes must have or could have opened for Otis Redding, Sam & Dave, Jackie Wilson, the Allman Brothers, John Hiatt, Bonnie Riatt, maybe it was Little Feat?

I heard "hold on" through Pandora for the first time and was immediately hooked on her voice and their style of play. A REAL singer "what a voice" with REAL musicians how refreshing. Of course I googled the video. Everyone has said it, but I mean it I love Brittany. What a stage presence and such emotion when she sings. I only hope that they are that cool in person.
Yours truly, A New Big FAN.

I had the pure pleasure of attending the Austin City Limits 40 th Anniversary show in June.
This band added a great deal to the 4 hour taping which was full of legendary musicians.
The night was full of many powerful performances . If you like Alabama Shakes you have got to check it out!

I saw this band on a music special for Bruce Springsteen, they did Adam raised the Cain as their tribute to him and folks, they rocked it. So I checked them out on Itunes and look forward to more of their music.
