Dawn McCarthy and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy – What The Brothers Sang

  • March 26, 2013

What The Brothers Sang is a tribute to the legendary country rock duo The Everly Brothers arranged and performed by Bonnie “Prince” Billy and Dawn McCarthy (Faun Fables). Recorded and mixed by David Ferguson (Johnny Cash, Del McCoury Band) and collaborated on by an impressive number of experienced session musicians, the selection of songs showcases lesser known numbers over the standard hit parade. Highlights include sad country numbers like “Empty Boxes” and “What Am I Living For”, the gentle psychedelic touches on “Just What I Was Looking For”, a rockabilly version of the Spencer Davis Group’s hit “Somebody Help Me”, and “Devoted to You” which draws upon and echoes The Everly Brothers’ legendary harmonies. Fans of The Everly Brothers will appreciate this respectful reinterpretation of their work while fans of Bonnie Prince Billy and McCarthy are sure to enjoy this carefully considered collection. – Written by JFelton
