Welcome No Depression Readers
Lean Into the Wind, the second full-length album from hard touring rock band Miss Shevaughn & Yuma Wray is the product of a year plagued by the chaos of friends passing, illness, depression and self-doubt, but also one of adventure, travel, friendship and the kinds of life events that ultimately help us to cut through the noise.
Lean Into The Wind is as twangy as it is fuzzy. Take the work of Gram Parsons with The Flying Burrito Brothers or The Byrds during their “Sweetheart Of The Rodeo” period, and slap Miss Shevaughn’s frighteningly powerful voice on top, and you have the songs of “Lean Into The Wind”.
Voted “Best Country Band” in the Reader’s ‘Best of Chicago 2013′ poll.
Hip-swingin’, hard drinkin’ country punk from the empty beer-can littered boulevards of scenic Chicago.
The Blind Staggers play the kind music that rattles around your brain at 4am after a long, lonely night at the bar. Singing songs of heart ache and hangovers, the Blind Staggers intoxicate you with the knockout dynamic between Damien Christian Wilburn and Laura Loo as the band plays heart felt rock Americana that captivates and haunts while rocking you lovingly until you pass out for the night.
…and while you’re here, why not pick up something for your gay nephew?
