You Oughta Know: Alabama Shakes!

Brittany Howard who is the front lady of the band “Alabama Shakes” is the re-birth of soulful rock. Well, in my opinion she is….And I am just calling it how I see it. The tendriled curly-haired vivacious Sista has pipes that put her in the rankings to be compared to Rock legends such as Tina Turner and Janis Joplin, a voice like Howard’s is considered a gem and we are lucky to have experienced a raw talent like Howard’s with all the mumbo Jumbo that is clogging up the radio airwaves ..(I know some of y’all feel me) currently the band has a new released self titled album which features their hit single “Hold on” which has went viral,  “Hold On” is a motivational anthem  that makes you want to sway back  and forth and chant along to the chorus. Howard shows a lot of her Rock inspired roots in her motivational Anthem however, she has tracks like “Rise to the Sun”  & “Hang loose “ that give a more subtle Amy Whinehouse feel. The Alabama Shakes are currently on tour at the moment and about a month ago or so they played at the Fonda theatre right here in LA  which ended up being a sold out show. MTV co-signed them as the top band to look out for in 2012 but it still surprises  me that a lot of music connoisseurs have not discovered them yet…but with a talent as big as Howard’s I’m sure the whole world will be singing their praises sooner than later.

Rumor has it  “The Alabama Shakes”  maybe working with Jack White.
