It’s hard not to smile around these guys. Lisa, who describes the band as barefoot and acoustic, says, “There’s a lot of negativity out there and we don’t want to be a part of that… We want people to walk away from the shows light and happy… refreshed and inspired.”
You don’t just listen to songs like “Ain't Got Nuthin'” or “Going Gone.” You want to know these songs. You want to make friends with this music. You want to like these guys.
Take the simple originality of The Civil Wars, the uncommon creative melodies of Mumford and Sons, and the unconventional unexpected instrument work of Flogging Molly. Add some grunging Screaming Trees and emoting Matthew & the Atlas. Put all that on top of the real-deals Johnny Cash and Jack White. Sprinkle in some Ani DiFranco soul songstress and Punch Brothers’ bluegrass. And you’ve got the seeds that sprouted Gideon’s Daughter.
