"SOUL HAS WEIGHT"
Featuring "Love and Turpentine"
In a time when rock and roll music has become less rock and more emotionless roll, it’s a good thing to know that there is a band like 21 Grams More around to keep the fire alive for the traditional sounds and themes of true blues inspired rock music.
21 Grams More overflows with the soulful sounds of music from a bygone era and it shows. Traces of Sly and the Family Stone, Stevie Wonder, and Muddy Waters, find themselves mixed with rock and roll sounds brought to us by many of the British bands of yore. The dirtied-up sounds of roots rock and americana ring out in everything they do.
Founded by ex high school classmates Kamal Jackson and Jeff Nilsen; Frontman Jackson's gritty and powerful vocals wrap around the haunting melodies perfectly and the lyrics are complemented by the driving guitars of Jeff Nilsen (Half Wiggum). Steve Savoie's skillful work on the keyboards moves evocatively from, B3 organ gospel-style runs, honky-tonk piano to everything in between. Passion seems to pour from the speakers as Brent Conley's (The Sunset Kings) melodic bassline holds down the bottom end and completes the rhythm section with Chris Cardinale (Mercy) on the drums locked in and driving the groove
