Country Lips – Touched

  • February 3, 2013

Outlaw country is making a resurgence, and Seattle collective Country Lips are tearing up local venues with their own brand of party country that pays homage to greats like Waylon Jennings, Johnny Cash and Merle Haggard. The robust and rowdy nine-piece comprised of Kenny Aramaki, Tom Beecham, Hamilton Boyce, Sarah Brown, Miles Burnett, Joanah Byrne, Austin “Sheriff” Jacobsen, Alex Leake, and Trevor Pendras apparently put on a hell of a live show, and their 10-inch vinyl or 13 track digital titled Touched is like its own afterparty filled with honky tong, twang and stomping rhythm. As a testament to their increasing popularity and prowess, Country Lips recently played the New Year’s Eve show at one of Seattle’s premiere venues, The Crocodile. Check out this rollicking band on their Bandcamp site or on KEXP’s latest podcast, Vol. 340. – Written by SMarx
