Out There Somewhere

by Deering and Down

This music takes us to the outskirts of town, into a no man’s land where there’s little difference between the sexy and the sacred, the old-fashioned and the otherworldly, between a soprano bubbling like a spring and a guitar tumbling like rocks. thi

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Deering and Down Release Their Soul/Rockabilly Breakthrough Album, "OUT THERE SOMEWHERE," Recorded At Willie Mitchell's Royal Studio In Memphis, TN.

Deering & Down, Memphis's best kept secret, are now ready to take on the world with their boldest, most confident album yet, “Out There Somewhere.” Lead singer Lahna Deering and lead guitarist Rev Neil Down have finally translated their exhilarating live show into a terrific studio album with the help of some of Memphis’s greatest R&B legends. Weaving the two main streams of Memphis music—rockabilly and Southern soul—the duo has created a hybrid sound that should transform them from local heroes to roots-rock stars.

As Washington Post music critic Geoffrey Himes puts it in the album's liner notes, “As Deering & Down play one hypnotic dream-song after another, it is clear that this is a classic male-guitarist-and-female-vocalist duo in the tradition of Buddy & Julie Miller, Delaney & Bonnie Bramlett, Lindsey Buckingham & Stevie Nicks, Charlie & Inez Foxx and Ike & Tina Turner. There are echoes of all those antecedents in the way Deering and Down play off one another—her bell-like soprano against his left-of-center guitar, her hymn-like yearning against his gritty realism. This is a duo that only needs the right record to launch themselves into the wider world.”

“That record is now here in the form of “Out There Somewhere," recorded at Memphis's legendary Royal Studio, where Al Green, Ann Peebles and more cut some of the best soul tracks ever recorded. Green’s producer Willie Mitchell helped out with horn arrangements and mixing (before tragically dying halfway through the project); Green's band, the Hi Rhythm Section, played on three tracks, and Mitchell’s son Boo co-produced the album with Deering & Down. Together this team somehow expanded the duo’s live sound without ever obscuring the one-on-one chemistry that is at the heart of the Deering & Down sound.”

Deering and Down first met in Skagway, Alaska, in 1998. They recorded their first album, 2001’s “Coupe de Villa," in the Yukon. They recorded Down’s solo album, 2003’s “When a Wrong Turns Right," in Ireland with Woodstock veteran Henry McCullough (Joe Cocker Grease Band, Paul McCartney and Wings). After touring the lower 48, they chose Memphis as their home in 2005. That’s where they recorded 2007’s “Break This Record” and the brand new “Out There Somewhere.” Now they are ready to criss-cross North America to bring their spiritual, sensual sound to new audiences everywhere.

Geoffrey Himes has written about music for the Washington Post, National Public Radio, Rolling Stone, Jazz Times, Paste Magazine, the Nashville Scene and other outlets for 35 years.

See you in Memphis
Strange way to review not because I didn't actually buy Deering & Down's CD 'Out There Somewhere on cdbaby but because I have the distinct pleasure of meeting both Lahna and the Reverend Neil at Sun Studios back in November, never hearing the new CD , I actually told Neil that he looked like a cross between 'Elvis Costello and The Clash's late singer Joe Strummer'..Neil was humbled by my gesture, anyhow I promptly bought their new CD there at Sun Studios, both Neil and Lahna were kind enough to autograph the CD for me, sayin 'With Love' Lahna and 'Good Vibes' Neil , good vibes is right and Out There Somewhere is filled with 'em, each song sings within itself while both Lahna and Neil sculpture each song to their surroundings , Deering & Down are the landscape of a modern Memphis and the fascinating songs they weave drip with the sounds of Beale St. and Union Ave all the way to the front steps of Graceland . I highly recommend Deering & Down not because they are two beautiful souls but because they are two beautiful souls telling it like it is . ..beautifully.
