Lillie Mae: The New Face of Nashville's Alternative Country

Lillie Mae: The New Face of Nashville's Alternative Country

Lillie Mae is the kind of woman who can knock you off your feet with a fiddle. Her new single, off the upcoming Jack White produced album, Forever And Then Some fills a void in an alternative country and folk-rock space sorely in need of female voices. "Over the Hill and Through the Woods" creates a panoramic view of a wide-open country space, which is refreshing in a music scene dominated by the urban and metropolitan. The song comes at country from a heavier rock angle. Distorted guitars and slap-happy drums carry along the simple but heavy hitting chord changes, while smooth but powerful vocals, complete with wide-panned harmonies ride the melody. If this easy country rocker, serving as a rebellious anthem against Nashville's country industrial complex, is any indication of the power of the upcoming album, we've all got a lot to look forward to from Lillie Mae this April.
