SONG OF THE DAY: “Free” by Luella & The Sun

Luella and the Sun is a four piece blues/rock band from Nashville,TN. Grimey’s Records’ Doyle Davis, bands like Moon Taxi and NPR Music’s Ann Powers are big fans. The group brings together local music city veterans John Radford, Joe McMahan, Adam Bednarik and Melissa Mathes (a.k.a. Luella). Drawing from blues and gospel in live performances, Luella — a female counterpart to Jack White — often begins a cappella until her bandmates kick in. So far, their recorded output consists of one single, but there’s more to come.
