Ask just about anyone who knows and they’ll tell you that Nashville just isn’t the place where stars are made anymore unless you’re hoping to score a CMT hit. Apparently, this sage wisdom was totally lost on The Deep Vibration who have a backstory and pedigree that would make Jacob Dylan jealous. The boys already have a legend (apparently Lou Reed himself christened the band with its name) and a legend on their record (famed songstress Gillian Welch sings harmonies on their track “Tennessee Rose”). The band is half bar room-rock-ruckus and half old-school-Neil-Young. Think Built To Spill with those clean, nice studio player chops. They’ve got a sound so clean you’ll be surprised when you hear Matt Campbell’s gravelly growl. The songwriting is top-notch and has folks like Paste Magazine bowing at their feet. Make sure to catch this band before they blow into “One Headlight” proportions. Also, check out their EP on Dualtone records called Veracruz.
