Album Premiere: The Nightowls _Fame Sessions_
Last year Austin-based soul ensemble The Nightowls made a pilgrimage to Muscle Shoals, AL to record their second album. The ten-member group landed at the celebrated FAME Studios where they were joined by David Hood and Spooner Oldham from the original FAME Studios house band The Swampers. On Friday Super Sonic Sounds will release the aptly titled Fame Sessions (It is now available for pre-order). The Nightowls’ lead singer Ryan Harkrider tells Relix, “ For our sophomore album, we wanted to make a pilgrimage to one of the meccas of southern soul music and immerse ourselves in the music and the artists that inspired our band since its formation in 2011. So, we packed up the van, drove to Muscle Shoals, Al and spent 3 days recording at Fame Studios with members of the legendary house band, The Swampers. In the end, we hope that Fame Sessions provides people with both a window into the history of soul music and a soundtrack to get up on their feet and dance!”
Today we offer the premiere stream of Fame Sessions.
