Highlonesome, Izzy Cox, & Molly Gene Wednesday, 7/18 $5
Few bands actually capture the true emotion that fuels them to create music. Highlonesome of Milwaukee WI, An Americana effort, pooling together multiple “Roots Music” stylings has recently raised the bar, Thier newest release “In life we can’t be free” clearly captures the darkness and pain of frontman and songwriter Noah Tyson. The album is soaked in misery, lost love & dealings with death. These boys really have something with this album, it’s refreshing! In an age where just about about every style of music has been beaten to death, they have given “Roots Music Fans” a breath of fresh air with the new album.
Izzy Cox ……..is an anarchist crooner she has coined the style Voodoobilly old style blues, country, jazz as her own; Influenced by old movie soundtracks, Old time bar room blues and country singers.Her lyrics are like diary entries.. Stories of serial killers, buckaroo cowboys, snake handlers and sports of nature .
“Molly Gene One Whoaman Band, is a down-home young woman, all cowboy boots and t-shirts and flannels, all soul and grit and fire. Her bottleneck slide technique is reminiscent of the old blues greats, though with a rock ‘n’ roll edge. Her raspy whiskey and cigarettes vocals, which do not come across as androgynous but remain entirely feminine, join together with her big plugged-in guitar sound to form songs that are as wicked as a desert rattlesnake, as sharp as a straight razor, as fiery as a sip of backwoods moonshine, as sultry as summer nights in the Deep South, and nearly as sexy as Molly herself.” —James Carlson Philadelphia Examiner
