Just yesterday, Nashville-based folk-rock band Lulu Mae debuted the music video for the title track off their forthcoming record Mean River. If the single is any indication to the quality of the the new record, you can rest assured that it will retain the same folksy lyricism, soaring harmonies and rock n’ roll attitude that made us here at CAS such fans of the band’s first album, The Mockingbird and the Dogwood Tree.
Lulu Mae has spent the better part of the last year writing and recording the material for Mean River, which was recorded live to tape in a four night marathon session at Soundstage Studios right here in Nashville. The recording sessions were part of a prize package the band won when they finished first in the annual Nashville band/artist competition, “Music City Mayhem,” curated by local independent radio affiliate Lightning 100. The video Mean River, which can be seen below, certainly showcases the raw intensity and soul of the band that was so well captured in the live recording sessions.
Cause A Scene will be presenting Lulu Mae’s official album release show at Exit/In on May 16th, with opening acts El El and The Oak Creek Band. Mean River officially drops on May 13th.
