Fine Lines, The Prescriptions

    Alternative

    By: Jack Evan Johnson,

    Like Jagger and Richards, Lennon and McCartney, and peanut butter and jelly, some things combined are better than their individual parts. Fine Lines, one of Nashville’s best new rock ’n’ roll bands, is no different. Comprised of two members of Indiana’s hard rock music scene, and two former members of a prodigious Alabama bar band, Fine Lines converged in Music City to make a sound that is both aggressive and soulful, sweet and sour, sticky and smooth. 

    The band began working on its debut album at Nashville’s Gnome recording studio in late 2017, with producer Don Bates. Despite its strengths, Fine Lines is not a vocals band. And not a guitar band. It’s just a good band. And when done right, that’s all you need to be. “I think of us as a rock band. I don’t put ‘alternative’ on the front or ‘garage’ on the front,” Probasco said. “My hope is people just can’t get the songs out of their head.”

    For Birmingham native Hays Ragsdale, songwriting became second nature early on, however it was a creative outlet that he mostly kept to himself. His outlook changed, however, after moving to Nashville in the fall of 2014, when family friend and Nashville music veteran Chas Williams convinced him that his songs had an audience. So Hays decided to seek out a group of experienced musicians and naturally turned to fellow Nashville transplants formerly involved in Birmingham's tight-knit music community. Luckily, he found some familiar faces: Longtime friend and bassist Parker McAnnally was recruited first, who soon suggested accomplished guitarist Jack Thomason and his college classmate, Houston-raised drummer John Wood. All drawn to the musical environment in Nashville for similar reasons, the four-piece quickly discovered a common vision and formed The Prescriptions. 

    While The Prescriptions may come by their Southern style of narrative storytelling honestly, they refuse to rest on the laurels of their musical heritage. Songs like “She Is Waiting” prove that they’re just as comfortable launching into a heavy, alt-country breakdown as they are a world-weary lyrical stream of consciousness. The Prescriptions channel a broad range of influences, from the aching, unaffected honesty of ‘70s folk titans like Neil Young, to the guitar-driven melodies of The Strokes’ early recordings and the experimental energy of Wilco.

    The band is set to start recording their first full length album at the legendary Sound Emporium Studios this spring. It’s clear that The Prescriptions are somewhat of a rarity in the modern musical landscape: a group of close friends that are more concerned with pushing each other’s creative boundaries rather than pushing a sound you’ve heard before. - Hilli Levin
