‘Catch of the Day’ – Sarah Dunn Band [AUDIO]
Its Unsigned/Indy Artist Thursday on the Catch of the Day, and today's catch comes to us from a group that has visited us and sat in with the KLAW morning show.
There is nothing typical about the Sarah Dunn Band. Sarah is the granddaughter of former country musician Max Brown, and grew up listening not only to the influence of not only his music, but the sounds of Bob Wills, Tracy Lawrence and Ella Fitzgerald. "It was so far reaching,” the singer recalls of her eclectic musical upbringing. “Music was the joy in my life. That’s how my mom and I connected, and how I got the idea and the passion that I wanted to perform live.”
Dunn made a record while she was still in Missouri, and a video for one of the songs, “If I Never Love Again” found its’ way to GAC. Though she had been featured in many bands before, she admits that the group she is a part of now has a talent and an energy all their own.
With guitarist Scotty Bell, their collective credits include stints with Vince Gill, Tim McGraw, and Reba McEntire. In addition, drummer David Kawika’s resume has included gigs at such heralded venues as The Apollo and The Superdome, and bassist Roger Caple has recorded with Country Music Hall of Famer Mel Tillis.
Today's COD is the second single from the band's debut album You Or The Whiskey. The Sarah Dunn Band and "Bye Bye", today's Catch of the Day; new music you haven't heard, but you'll want to hear it again.
