Baeble First Play: The Saint Johns' Rollicking Americana
  • MONDAY, FEBRUARY 29, 2016

  • Posted by: Don Saas



I called it a while ago, but I feel comfortable now saying that 2016 is going to be the year that alt-country and alt-Americana officially reassert their dominance back at the top of the musical food chain. The world has Chris Stapleton, Kacey Musgraves, Jason Isbell, and many more making it cool to like country again, and country-tinged Americana act The Saint Johns are the next act helping me stay in touch with my rural roots.

The Florida songwriters are releasing their debut LP, Dead of Night, this Friday, March 4th, and we have the exclusive premiere. With a sound that is equal parts early Lady Antebellum and more Americana-rock centric bands like Delta Spirit, Dead of Night is a sonic injection of Southern roots music right to the veins.

From tracks like album opener "Shadowplay" to "Falling Back to You" and "Lost the Feeling," Dead of Night pairs soaring vocal melodies with warm guitars. "Lost the Feeling" in particular recalls Santana and Rob Thomas's "Smooth" with its opening guitar licks. If you like your Americana with craft and emotional resonance, Dead of Night is for you.
