Amerikanischer könnte es nicht klingen. Cory Taylor Cox stellt sich einfach hin, macht einen auf klassischen Songwriter und klingt dabei auch noch zu 100% wie ein US-Amerikaner. Er hat wahrlich amerikanisches Singer-Songwriter-Tum im Blut und ich habe sofort gespürt, dass er diese Identität mit sich und seiner Musik trägt. Er vermittelt sie aber auch und überträgt sie auf den Zuhörer.

Today's Music Video Monday's got hometown pride. 

Cory Taylor Cox is currently living in Nashville, but his heart is still in the Bluff City. "'Memphis Kids' was written by myself and fellow musician/Memphian Joseph Barrios, we set each verse as a layer of the Memphis music scene, from suburbs, to Midtown, to the historical significance of Memphis music." In this video, Cox and his band bring his hometown anthem to a crowd at Nashville's Mercy Lounge. You can check out more of his music on his Bandcamp page.

the reverb-heavy electric sound of Memphis Kids, this EP is full of heart, skillful musicianship, and personal lyrics.  Definitely recommended for an early evening on the patio with a few drinks or lying on the floor with some headphones and staring at the ceiling.

The opening track Memphis Kids is a favorite for me.  It’s as if Marc Cohn wrote indie rock today.
