After years of reverent exploration and immersion in classic soul and R&B, it can be said The Nightowls has learned its history. Now, the Austin-based groove machine is ready to not repeat it.
Casting aside its throwback artistic ethos, the 10-piece band boldly paves its own path with the sensual pop and smoldering grooves of the aptly titled, We Are The Nightowls, out April 27. Itâ€™s a masterful album that benefits from a stable lineup, and crisp modern production courtesy of Chris Bell (Erykah Badu, North Mississippi Allstars, Kenny Wayne Shepherd).
â€œPreviously, it was important for us to look back and pay tribute to the past, but now itâ€™s time to move the ball forward and do something unique,â€ says the bandâ€™s visionary, main songwriter, and singer Ryan Harkrider.
