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 not-so-subtle blend of fiery blues-rock and hard-hitting Southern soul has drawn comparisons to the Black Keys, the 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 in 2012, Boys & Girls was produced and mixed by the band at the Bomb Shelter in Nashville. ~ James Christopher Monger., Rovi

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!

Found this band because a colleague's kid brought them up. I may be old but I still like it to rock with soul! Great sound!
Oh Snaps! They have the throw back sound & it Rocks
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.
Saw them performing at ACC via PBS. Cannot get enough of this music. Love it! Sure would love to see them perform live!

Can't stop listening to Alabama Shakes! Awesome jams, reminds me of Janis Joplin...Bri t t a n y has a one of a kind voice! Keep it up, ya'll rock!!!
Saw them on Austin city limits a year a so ago they rocked out. That girl can sing..! U just don't hear music like this much in main stream. U guys rock keep it up.....
found a new band. . . that is really awesome. . . Alabama Shakes .

I know I'm not the first to have heard of them. . . people more hip than myself may be more than familiar with their meteoric rise to fame, but I heard the song hold on on the radio the other day, and I couldn't get it out of my head.

After checking out the rest of their songs, I have become a fan. . . the girl can sing. . . and she's singing real rock n' roll like I haven't heard in a long time.

To quote the great AC/DC,
love them!
Amazing!
Soulful!
Just saw them last night in Miami......W o w ! Brittany is a superstar!
We saw them too at the Hard Rock in Orlando. Amazing energy and vocals. Brittany and the band should really go far.
Thanks for ROCKING Orlando last night Shakes. Filled my soul.
I saw them on SNL too, and can't believe they are not well known. Brittany's voice is amazing.
