This is some hard-core retro honky-tonk that spits Jack Daniels in the face of today's namby-pamby country stars.
You may get pulled in the door with the voice, but you will stick around for the songwriting... the witty lines and turns and stories are many, and the quality stays top shelf throughout the album.
The band look and act like touring roadhouse minstrels from the late '50s who drove their Studebaker into a time warp on the road to Hunstville and ended up in modern-day KC... a match made in honky tonk heaven.
A powerful mix of country, bluegrass, Americana and honky tonk...If you're a fan of Johnny Cash you will certainly find solace in Adam Lee and the Dead Horse Sound Company.
Ghostly Fires is fantastic...What makes it so compelling is the way it builds bridges between classic and new styles.
With Kay’s skills on guitar, lap steel, and mandolin riding shotgun, it’s a keenly produced affair that sets the scene just right for Lee’s deep-voiced drawl.
