Band Press


I am, admittedly, a fan of throwback soul and R&B. Nick Waterhouse is a great example of someone copping an established style but continuing to make it entertaining with original tunes. Magnolia Sons falls right into that same category of creators. The influences are painfully obvious but that doesn’t make it any less enjoyable to listen to. In fact, it makes it more enjoyable because you have a familiar touchstone to use as a jumping off point. So far the band has released a handful of 7?‘s and, frankly, I couldn’t think of a more appropriate format for their intentionally retro styles. - WE OWN THIS TOWN (NASHVILLE)

Critics' Picks – the Nashville Scene

“...a sanguine set of unflinchingly upbeat retro power-pop and greasy, maximum R&B ...bursts at its seams with life-embracing good vibes and enough infectious rhythm to inspire fevered responses to the band’s calls for foot stomps and handclaps.” - Nashville Scene
