Twisted Whistle's take on Americana: debut album out July 7th!

Twisted Whistle's take on Americana: debut album out July 7th!

However heartwarming it may be, however raw, I can't say I've ever really found Americana fun; but then here's something different. A band that humorously defines itself as “Amerockanagrass”, fully aware that even that would not suffice. Fronted by Kina Lyn Muir and her softly powerful vocals, Portland's Twisted Whistle push the loose boundaries of American roots music a little further, retaining from the genre hardly much more than an instrumental formation and some themes here and there.

The particularity of the band's music, beautifully conveyed in this album, lies in the many flavours they successively incorporate to their songs: exploring elements of bluegrass, Irish folk, prog rock, and rock 'n' roll, they set themselves aside a deep-seated musical tradition to offer up something just a little more exciting. Fundamentally versatile, their forthcoming debut “Through The Mill”, presents a unique and ever so refreshing variety of acoustic sounds. Released on the 7th of July, it will be welcomed with a performance and a party at Mt Tabor Theatre.- Tracy Mamoun
