Sounds of Secret Stages 2016 #18: Sun Seeker

It's sweltering out there, which can only mean it's getting to be about time for the 2016 installment of Alabama's awesome little music festival, Secret Stages. In a mere few days, a bunch of great local/regional/further afield bands will descend on Birmingham for what promises to be a heck of a good time. (Once again) I won't be there, dangit, but here's who I think is really worth checking out from the excellent lineup.

Ah, the beauty of folk tears. Not the tears of folk lords and ladies, mind you. Folk tears as in the self-identified genre of Nashville's Sun Seeker. They've added their name to the Third Man roster, and with their rarified, golden hour folksy feels it's not hard to see why. Sounds like watching an especially stunning sunset cast a burnished glow over the Tennessee mountains.
