“Nashville’s Luella and the Sun approach the blues and gospel-soul as if these traditions were the food of the gods and they haven’t eaten for a week. Luella herself has a ferocious, feminine voice, and performs with zero fear.” By Ann Powers NPR
Luella and the Sun, one of Nashville, TN’s must see emerging acts defies any singular description. Music Connection Magazine described them in geographic terms as “feverish, bluesy jungle territory.” Regardless of how they are characterized, one certain thing is that their sound ignites a soulful blend of blues-hop, gospel and rock, merging a fearless sense of abandon and equal parts restraint. The band deftly works as a unit and every note has purpose, combining minimalist attitude with raw emotion – and even in their most unguarded moments, there’s a smoldering vulnerability that’s unquestionably mesmerizing. Quickly capturing the attention of the music community, Luella and the Sun is a band that you do not want to miss.
