Memphis Dawls - Rooted in the Bone (Madjack Records)

Star rating: 
4

Richly orchestrated, the Memphis Dawls' debut album ROOTED IN THE BONE covers a lot of ground in terms of musical influence. The core trio of Memphis-based Holly Cole, Jana Misener and Krista Wroten who play guitar, cello and viola/mandolin/accordion respectively, appear to run the gamut of timeless music, from folk, country and rock through to the utterly convincing southern gospel soul of Liar, one of the album's standout tracks. This empathy began early for the three musicians, all of whom originally played together in high school, went their separate ways and then in 2010 collided in musical union. A lot of water, a lot of bridges and now the trio are set to be heard and ROOTED IN THE BONE is the perfect vehicle to get their music out there.
