Miss Shevaughn and Wray spent last year on the road and without fail at every show, someone would ask, “So, where are you from?” That would always lead to a bit of stammering. Miss Shevaughn was born in Arkansas and grew up in Louisiana, and Wray grew up internationally.
They met in the District of Columbia and again in Chicago, Ill. To add to the story the duo left Chicago for life on the road full-time and living in their Honda for most of 2011.
“We’re From Here,” written and recorded over a year on the road, this debut album is a classic American road trip story, unfolding both the personal and family histories as well as the musical influences on both songwriters.
The addition of a drummer expands the band’s dynamic palette.
From the opening strains of “Go Hang” the lamentation of a life wasted in a dead-end town to the final soft note of “Anniversary Song” the realization that one may have actually been home the entire time, “We’re From Here” serves as a map of sorts, a suggested travel route exploring American music, identity and the concept of home.
The show is from 8 p.m. to midnight.
