Sounds of Savannah Stopover 2016 #26: Quiet Hollers

A funny thing has been happening on the way to SXSW, y'all. A whole lot of bands have been making a pitstop in Savannah, Georgia, on their way to the musical motherland of Austin. And the city best known for its history is making waves with this here shindig known as the Savannah Stopover, about to enjoy its sixth iteration. My head has been turned enough to give y'all some recommendations from said Stopover for your listening pleasure. And if you happen to be free from March 10-12, maybe you ought to just venture on down to Savannah for yourself.

One has to love Quiet Hollers for having an oxymoronical name, to start with. But man alive, there's so much more to love about this band. Plaintive, emotional-heavy songs with the plainspoken, no frills Americana that's incredibly appealing. Heart-wrenching and life-affirming.
