"Somebody & The Somethings: Certainly A Live Experience"

Local Music Review
Who: Somebody and the Somethings
Where: The High Note
When: 28 September

By John Riley Barnacastle
The trio of Somebody and the Somethings entertained a sparse crowd Monday night at Southside’s the High Note with a nine song set of tunes to be released on their as yet unnamed debut album. Opening with a fun little song called “We’re Bound to See the Sun,” and closing with a cover of Oasis’ “Don’t Look Back in Anger,” the Somethings played for a little over an hour. Their sound ranges from indie to rockabilly and guitarist and vocalist Steven Lane’s lyrics can be intense and introspective as in “Entertain the Rain,” and optimistic and upbeat as in “Getting There.” Perhaps most impressive were the drumbeats of Harry Miree, which would be interesting to hear in a larger venue, perhaps more acoustically receptive than the cramped High Note. Bassist Jim Cunningham maintains a sharp stoicism and perfectly complements the theatrics of Miree and the occasionally rambling monologues of Lane.

Though few, the crowd present at Monday night’s show seemed to be pleased with the performance. The band gives off a “regular guys” vibe that can be refreshing in the increasingly pretentious arena of indie music. The band certainly has a wide appeal, while still producing quality music. It will be fun to see where Somebody and the Somethings take themselves. Here’s hoping they become a “somebody” in the music world and soon.

SOMEBODY & THE SOMETHINGS are not just anybody. A trio from Birmingham, Alabama, Steven Lane, Harry Miree, and Jim "Jambone" Cunningham are each simultaneously and interchangeably Somebody & The Somethings. The idea of a band was first entertained by the three in a nineth grade English class. The band assumed a number of identitites throughout high school while performing at parties and a few charitable events. In March of 2007, their senior year of high school, the band performed as The Ape Invaders while opening for Sister Hazel at a sold out show at Birmingham's Sloss Furnaces. With college came new responsibilities and interests. With Jim away at school, Harry and Steve both agreed to continue playing, but merely for fun. As time progressed, and Steve and Harry began to write and record new material, they felt compelled to once again seriously pursue the band. Steve, Harry, and Jim reunited as Somebody and the Somethings with Steven Lane on guitar and vocals, Harry Miree on drums, and Jim "Jambone" Cunningham on bass guitar. Having come a long way since 9th grade English class, Somebody & The Somethings have been crafting and perfecting new material in studio for their latest album White Lies. Their recent work could be described as pop folk rock inspired by greats such as The Beatles and Bob Dylan, but with a modern sound reflective of their times, and reminiscient of acts like Blue Mountain, The Jayhawks, and The Boy Least Likely To. With their debut album, Somebody & The Somethings hope to leave listeners with a renewed sense of hope for an uncertain future. Such a lofty goal is probably unattainable by one band, but still worth shooting for. One thing is for certain, Somebody & The Somethings are a band worth checking out.
