Dear readers – you have been awesome lately at recommending great bands to me. Thanks to Wes Davenport, The Black Cadillacs have a new fan in me, because what is there not to like about blues-based rock ‘n roll bred in Tennessee?
Stream: “Classic Fool”
Will – Knoxville, Tennessee
Matthew – Memphis, Tennessee
Philip – Memphis, Tennessee
John – Orlando, Florida
Adam – Nashville, Tennessee
Kevin – Knoxville, Tennessee
Favorite Knoxville venue to play:
The Bijou Theatre. It’s world renowned for its sound quality and has featured famous acts from all over the world. Having said that, we’ve played some great shows at our favorite bar, Preservation Pub. It’s a great atmosphere and a really rowdy time.
Now would ya look at that:
Our wardrobe for the photo shoot was largely supplied by Marc Nelson Denim, a company based in Knoxville. Our jeans for the shoot were Marc Nelson as well as the leather jackets on Matthew and Kevin. Our look is stylistically based on a southern, blue collar aesthetic. We like down to earth, approachable, but well considered style for the most part.
Their sophomore LP, Run, releases tomorrow, and you can download two songs from it on NoiseTrade for free right now (“Classic Fool” and “Run Run”). They were kind enough to let me stream their new album and seriously y’all…get it first thing tomorrow.
