Uniting a deep shared passion for Southern US roots styles with the upfront attack of the street buskers they once were; all-acoustic old-time instruments with whip-smart original songwriting, the Old Crow Medicine Show make music to assuage most ills.
After touring coast-to-coast by train with Mumford & Sons in 2011, on the historic Railroad Revival Tour, their 2012 fourth album Carry Me Back saw them bidding farewell to singer/guitarist Willie Watson and welcoming back original member Critter Fuqua, in a collection of rip-roaring hoedowns, string-band workouts and radiantly harmonised lyrics addressing topics from Hurricane Katrina to the Iraq war.
Their songwriting is equal to the great names in American music (think Cash and Nelson), their musicianship is without peer and their energy remains as tight as a drum. (No Depression)
The stunning and original sound of this vocal duo (Amanda Sudano and Abner Ramirez) began in 2005 when the two met and began writing together, drawing from any corner of popular music that pleased them, from folk and soul to indie-pop and R&B. To these songs they gave their show-stopping voices, and JOHNNYSWIM was born. No matter the story of a song or its musical influence, each tune burns with a spirit and passion that has this singer/songwriter team turning heads in the music world.
