The Memphis Dawls (@memphisdawls) Live at the @LevittShell @Grammy365

Albums, Bands, Downloads, entertainment, events, music


Memphis indie rocker Holly Cole has been fairly well-known in Memphis for several years, but this year has been the real break-out year for her latest venture, the trio with Jana Misener and Krista Wroten known as the Memphis Dawls. The Dawls, judging from their performance at the Levitt Shell for the Recording Academy shindig, bring a punk/indie sensibility to the kind of country/folk ethos that fueled Emmylou Harris and Linda Ronstadt. But there are tinges of jazz and soul as well, and appearance-wise, the trio cultivates a decidedly late-1940’s aesthetic. Certainly we’ve been hearing more about them this year, and from what I heard at the Shell, with good reason. All their recorded music can be mailordered by going to http://thememphisdawls.storenvy.com/, or it can be purchased for download at their Bandcamp site.
