Alabama Shakes – Hold On

This week’s pick comes to us from Ted who is an active member of and a good friend.  Alabama Shakes is an American rock band formed in Athens, Alabama in 2009. The group consists of lead singer Brittany Howard, guitarist Heath Fogg, bassist Zac Cockrell, and drummer Steve Johnson.  Alabama Shakes released the four-song EP Alabama Shakes in September 2011, which gained widespread media attention.  The band’s first full length album, “Boys & Girls”, will be released on April 10, 2012.  In one of the comments I was reading on youtube it said if Janis Joplin and Otis Redding had a baby it would be Brittany Howard – she has a great voice and it sounds great in the song of the week – Hold On.
