ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Lauderdale began in early 2005, shortly after New Year's Eve. The sound is Rock and Roll without any pretensions. The band, born and raised in the Shoals area of North Alabama, is obviously deep rooted in Southern culture. The Muscle Shoals area has provided no shortage of influences for the band. A lot of the best and most successful music from the 60's and 70's was produced and engineered in the band's hometown. Lauderdale has also been influenced from a wide range of other musical genres as well. Taking mostly from folk, country, bluegrass and Americana, the band performs these styles with their own huge injection of guitar driven Rock and Roll. Their music is saturated with big, beautiful melodies and strong pop hooks with a true southern grace. The band has been compared to many industry greats, including the Jayhawks, Lucero, Drive-by Truckers, R.E.M., and Grant Lee Buffalo.

Lauderdale is the head-on collision of a struggling band coming apart at "the seams and an engineer/songwriter eagerly waiting for the right people to come along. The band experienced a handful of bass players before settling into the current line-up: Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist-Niles Lee, Drummer Patrick Mcdonald and Bassist Corey Hannah. Soon after the band was formed in 2005, a three song demo was recorded for booking and immediately received an overwhelming local response. They played their first show in Birmingham, Alabama, at The Nick, a venue Rolling Stone labeled the “CBGB of the South”. Lauderdale has since shared the stage with bands such as Wild Sweet Orange (Earfood Records), Glossary (Undertow Records), Jucifer (Capricorn and Nonesuch Records) and Mark Pickerel, formerly of the Screaming Trees (Bloodshot Records). The band has also been featured on the cover of Bliss magazine, one of the most widely distributed life and arts magazines in North Alabama. All of this occurred within the year leading up to the album’s release. In short, the band is just getting started and plans on working even harder to make Lauderdale one of the most respected and recognizable names in music today. The band has worked tirelessly to release an unforgettable first album that showcases both their skill as musicians and their talent as songwriters. The self-titled debut album is expected in the summer of 2007.

"I love it because its good, goddamn music and because its part of the Muscle Shoals Sound revival that's taking place back home."

Great stuff. Muscle Shoals strikes again. Can't wait to see them live.

Very, very good
I own both their albums. First I bought Moving On and later got the first album too. The self-titled album is even better in my opinion. Great sound, good lyrics, nice variety in tracks, very underrated. I'm glad Cdbaby is there for musicians like these guys, or else I would've never known them.
