Queer Alt-Country Band, Indiana Queen, Releases Debut Album


Nashville’s first queer-alt country band “Indiana Queen” has just released their debut album “This I Do Carry Unto The End.” It is available on band camp and it’s strumming my eardrums as I type this. The album has the smoothness of James Taylor with haunting overtones. After finishing my first listen through of “This I Do Carry Unto The End,” it’s hard to explain, but it gave the carefree feeling of flying down the highway at high speeds with my head out the window taking everything in, smell, touch, sound, and sight. My prediction, we will be seeing much more of these guys in the future.

The Huffington Post said, “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.

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.”

Find below the music video by Indiana Queen we featured last month that quite a big response.
