Three quality Americana tunes that will remind you why you love the genre so much

Riley Catherall – “South of Somewhere”
-This is a GREAT song. If you’re a fan of the Jason Isbell turn in Americana music in the past decade or so, you’ll find a lot to like about Riley Catherall’s sound. It’s lyrically rich, melodically pleasing, and just as cool as a cucumber. The phrasing is good through the whole track, but the chorus is outstanding. There’s something about the lightness in the electric guitar riff at the end of the chorus that just gives this sense of space and connection. The delicate balance of new and old instrumentation with relatable lyrics makes this one a stand out for sure.

Sunny Pache – “Seasons of You”
-Just like the weather has seasons of change, so too does love and a relationship. This song is all about that cycle and the way it feels in a relationship. Life is cyclical and this track does a great job of highlighting that simple fact. As Americana is wont to do, the song describes a simple and relatable fact of human living. The guitar, banjo, and overall energy of the track has shades of Americana and roots country for a wonderful, timeless sound. The understated vocal harmonies are one of my favorite parts on this fantastic track.

Jeff Cramer – “Ravens”
-From the first time I clicked play on this song, I was blown away. I actually audibly said “that’s SO good” out loud. Click play on this one and you’ll hear why I feel that way. The vocal harmonies are outstanding. It’s got this beautiful balance of classic artists like John Denver blended with more contemporary folk artists like Needtobreathe. The combination is a style that perfectly fits with what we’ve been curating here at ETTG for well over a decade. “So let’s take another ride to the valley…” Amen to that. It’s a song about perspective, love, devotion, adventure, and getting outside of ourselves in the best way possible. I really appreciate the quality in every way here.
