The Marriage | Box and Burn It | review

Written by MartinB

On October 2, 2020

Box and Burn It is perfect for festival crowds! Taken from the album “Imagining Sunsets” this track is a dead cert to get the festival crowds singing along (when current restrictions are lifted and we are once again allowed to sing with the band)!

Positive lyrics speak about leaving the negativity behind, appropriate for these times and the perfectly synchronised phrasing and harmonies are just joyous. Kirsten and Dave have a heritage steeped in live music. Kirsten spent her summers in Nashville and her Father, Stuart Adamson, was the founder of Skids and Big Country. Dave Burn picked up his first guitar at seven years of age, was signed by a major label at 15 and toured in bands since his teens.

With so many duos emerging on the scene, it is important to create a definitive sound that makes you stand out from the 100’s of twosomes that are releasing music in this genre.
However, this is definitely a marriage made in UK heaven, with two people creating beautiful Americana music and catchy lyrics. I can’t wait to see them perform live.

Review If I didn’t know better, I would assume Mitchell Kersley was Nashville born and bred as opposed to coming from “a little village on the south coast of England” according to his biography.  ‘I Only Cry When I’m Drinking’ is steeped in country, with great guitar...

The Shires feat Lauren Alaina | Lightning Strikes

Review From its acapella start, ‘Lightening Strikes’ builds to a catchy rhythm that has more rises and falls than a quickstep. The clever chorus is punctuated with effective tacets, giving it that traditional country sound that will stay with you long after the song...

Sean C Kennedy | Wild Forever

Review   Wild Forever by Scottish born Sean Kennedy is a song that oozes freedom, images of wide open spaces with a worry free existence and it wouldn’t be out of place as the track of choice for a romantic Viennese waltz on Strictly.  Now living permanently in...
