Raelyn Nelson Band featured on ‘A Southern Original’ (95.3 The Bear)

Wednesday, June 4th, 2014

Each week, 95.3 The Bear and Pepsi will spotlight ‘A Southern Original’ featuring an up and coming country artist and delve into their music and history.

I figured the best way to start this feature off was with a rocking little country band from Nashville that has some of the most legendary roots in country music. Hopefully, with that comment you’ve figured out that Raelynn Nelson has a famous grandfather named Willie, or ‘Papa Willie’ as she lovingly refers to him.

Taking a page from Willie, Waylon, Cash, and Paycheck’s unwritten “Outlaw Handbook,” Raelyn Nelson Band are doing their own thing with an alt rock leaning, rowdy approach to country music. As a matter of fact it’s hard to classify them either way so let’s don’t. Let’s just call it music and move on.

My favorite track on their self-titled EP is a song called ‘Get a Room’, the last cut on the record. This one hits like the opening of ‘I Fought the Law’ but more like The Clash version than the original Bobby Fuller Four version. The driving drum beat sets the tone while the chang-a-lang strumming of the guitar helps to count the song into a rhythm awaiting the arrival of Raelyn’s voice, innocent but commanding. The song sings of two lovers who need to “get a room before we get arrested.”

Of course you’ll not be able to miss ‘Moon Song’ which is Raelyn’s chance to sing beside her very famous grandfather. Honestly the most country track, ‘Moon Song’ is like an upbeat, honky-tonk lullaby if that makes sense. Her sweet voice coupled with the steady strumming of her ukelele makes it the perfect soundtrack for Sunday morning coffee with the person you love.

Before leaving you two tracks to discover on your own, I’ll close with a short review of Raelyn Nelson Band’s first single, ‘Do You.’ It’s a signature love song/party anthem if there has ever been such a thing. A bouncy ode to individuality and the prospect of love, the appeal of ‘Do You’ is the springy guitar riffs and anthemic chorus, cheering, “But I wanna be with you and I want you to want me to. Do you?”

All in all, I’m a fan. Raelyn Nelson Band have a musically adorable appeal and are smart in their placement of memorable riffs and lyrics.

Raelyn Nelson and her rockin country garage rock band

Sunday, April 6th, 2014

The Raelyn Nelson Band performed last night at the High Watt, in Nashville, and I grabbed these cool photos they shared on Facebook.  You can follow Raelyn and the Band at their FaceBook Page, sample their music, see tour schedule, learn more about the band and see more cool photographs.

I didn’t even know I liked country garage rock, but as it turns out, I really do, if that’s what the Raelyn Nelson Band is playing.  The band has a new album out, and I am really enjoying listening to it.  It makes you feel good, like you walked into a Nashville bar and her band is playing, it’s intimate.    She tells such great stories, with all the humor and irreverency of her grandfather Willie and aunts Amy and Paula.  (“Get a Room (or get arrested)”.   My favorite is the sweet duet she sings with Willie, “The Moon Song”.  (You can hear a little of it in the video below.)  But the album rocks.

Like most of her family, Raelyn is very actively involved in animal rights issues, and frequently travels to DC, or around the country, with her aunt Amy Nelson, to represent their family and speak up on important issues.

Raelyn is cute and saucy and loaded with that wit, humor and talent that flows through that Nelson family.  (I told her she should be in movies, and I know I’m not the first one to say that.)   I admit I probably would never have heard of her if she weren’t Willie Nelson’s granddaughter, but I get introduced to a lot of great music in different ways, and Willie Nelson & Family & friends & fans have turned me on to some fantastic music, that I am grateful for it.   I’d go see Raelyn and her band, I’d bring some friends, I’ll buy her albums.  You should too!
