Sing, Sing a Song Saturday

Sing, Sing a Song Saturday is all about me discovering something that is different. I don't want to post things that you and I have more than likely heard before. I want to find something different. It could be from another country, someone singing from the streets of NY, and more.


This week I found Alabama Shakes on Spotify. I have to say that the lead singer, Brittany Howard has one hell of a soulful voice!

They are an American rock band formed in Alabama of course (hence the name of the band). The group consists of singer and guitarist Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell, keyboard player Ben Tanner, and drummer Steve Johnson.

The story their band started in a high school psychology class. Brittany, who had started playing guitar a few years earlier, approached Zac and asked if he wanted to try making music together. “I just knew that he played bass and that he wore shirts with cool bands on them that nobody had heard of,” said Howard.

They wrote songs on Brittany's floor. That is how they started out getting their sound.
