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 -- and debuted at number one -- in April 2015. ~ James Christopher Monger

Although some or all of them may identify as Christian, Brittany definitely curses in some of her lyrics so I doubt they can be categorized as Christian music.

I loved them when I heard the first song my daughter played for me. Saw them live in Berkeley and they were so amazing! Those vocals made my hair stand on end. It was a spiritual experience. Everyone there felt it.

This band flat out OWNS it live! Saw them this week in VA and was left breathless. Their new album is just plain fun to listen to. I hear so much when I listen to them, Otis redding, Rolling Stones, Aretha Franklin, even hints of Zeppelin. Brittney's fearless passionate vocals are the superblownen g i n e that drives this talented band. Somehow all of their songs sound like familiar classic songs you've heard before, nbut it's like hearing them for the very first time.

Saw her in Detroit last night. Awesome performance with only one guitar used for her entire time on stage (looked like a Gibson SG)

Became a fan this past weekend after her performance in Minneapolis. My friend told me Brittany is compared to Janis Joplin, but the first time I heard her I thought Tina Turner all the way. Either way love this new music find.
