With just an upright bass, two old guitars and a bucketful of aching harmony, THE GOAT ROPER RODEO BAND are preaching ‘Country Blues’ like you never heard… It’s up, it’s down, it’s soft and loud, it’s dark and lonesome too, there’s hurt and shame and some mean old pain but there’s love in what they do! There’s a hint of Gram, a sniff of Dylan and a twist of Waylon’s blues … Simply put, it’s exactly what it says on the tin. Joined by the seriously talented Hannah Aldrige, with songs that linger on the dark side of swampy Americana; the daughter of Alabama and Nashville Hall of Fame writer Walt Aldridge, and with 2 album releases under her belt. Working with people with one foot in country music and one foot in rock, Hannah Aldridge makes a fresh kind of Southern Rock styled by Southern Gothic storytelling. – with hard, sweet lyrics about whisky, men, demonic possession and the passing of time.
