It's a dynamic mid-tempo crooner track, with a soothing harmony and a smart turnaround out of the chorus that underscores the extra personality from the songwriting.

Something about the voice here gives me Jackson Browne, that rustic sound of the desert Southwest, coupled with a coastal urban thing from the shores of Massachusetts. It is wonderfully produced, with a beautiful small-body sound to the acoustic guitar, and a performance from the rhythm section and B3 that feels appropriate to the greats of this genre: Ryan Adams, Jason Isbell, or even Hayes Carll.

Lay Low Moon is a Folk-Americana band from Boston, MA. Be sure to catch them live at the legendary folk venue Club Passim in Cambridge, MA on August 26th.
