Here is a quick introduction to a band that is new to me, Indiana Queen. Yes, there is a hunky man dancing in his undies, but what makes this the full package, is the amazing voice and tender lyrics of this song This is Me trying.
“The new album by “Indiana Queen” takes country roots and spins them from an usual perspective. “I have no interest in pretending to be someone else. I don’t care if Nashville isn’t ready for it.” says Thornton in reference to his sexuality. “The album is country, but let’s be serious there is nothing traditional about Indiana Queen.”
There are traces of Hank Williams. The pulse of “Jolene.” Chord progressions that originated in the Baptist Hymnal. However these influences meet at an unexpected crossroads with Antony and The Johnsons, Roxy Music and Tom Waits.” Huffington Post
