Brigitte DeMeyer and Will Kimbrough - "Rainy Day" (audio) (premiere)

Brigitte DeMeyer and Will Kimbrough's upcoming album IS Americana in every sense of the word. We eagerly await its release.
 

Nashville singer-songwriters Brigitte DeMeyer and Will Kimbrough have worked together for years and became best friends in the process. Now, the duo is set to release their first album as an official duo. Mockingbird Soul, releasing January 27th, is an Americana album through and through as it brings in all the great roots genres that populate Americana, including blues, country, early jazz, gospel, folk and bluegrass. DeMeyer thinks of their sound as acoustic soul and that’s a fabulous description as you can here on their new single “Rainy Day”, a genuinely soulful number that has us eagerly awaiting the album’s release.
  
Kimbrough tells PopMatters that his “little slack-tuned guitar bit turned into bass monster Chris Wood’s showcase and Brigitte’s gospel workout. I added a little bit here and there. I’m glad it took off in its own direction.” Meanwhile DeMeyer says the “lyrics were spurred by watching my young boy struggle with social stuff at school. It’s a song of encouragement. Chris Wood created the bass track to my vocal after hearing our initial melody idea. Will filled in the rest. Micol Davis overdubbed tambourine.”
