John Paul White with The Secret Sisters
Saturday, July 9, 2016
The Jazz Kitchen
5377 N. College Ave
21+, doors 7 PM, show 8 PM, $15 advance, $17 door

What a great show this will be! John Paul White and The Secret Sisters are both from the same neck of the Alabama woods.

John Paul White is tour in support of his newest album, Beulah. The record is named for a long-time family nickname, but all I can think of when I hear the name is my favorite childhood cat. The album doesn’t come out until August, but the song that was released on NPR is delightful. "The Martyr” is introspective and leans towards the rock genre. Album reviews are all great, saying the record covers a spectrum of rock, twang, and soul, highlighting John Paul’s amazing voice. You might recognize him as the male half of the now-defunct duo, Civil Wars.

The Secret Sisters - Laura and Lydia Rogers grew up immersed in the Muscle Shoals musical culture and are influenced by a wide range of music. They listened to everything from George Jones, Loretta Lynn, The Ramones, and Fleetwood Mac.  Their father is a musician and introduced them to bluegrass at an early age, taking them to weekend bluegrass festivals. The result is an eclectic mix of musical styles and strong storytelling all surrounded by beautiful harmonies.

Don’t forget about the great food at The Jazz Kitchen, order dinner and enjoy the music.
