Saturday, May 21th at the Pour House was the official release party for the latest James Justin & Co. CD, Dark Country. The band hit the ground running and the stage did not seem large enough to contain the energy, talent and enthusiasm of the band as a whole and specifically, lead vocalist and guitar player, James Justin Burke. Burke’s music is fun to get down to, but there is also rich storytelling and emotions in every tune.

Duffy Lewis of Charlestontoday.net had this to say about Burke and his band: With their eclectic mix of musical styles, James Justin & Co. represents the best of the burgeoning genre of Americana. “Americana is here to stay. I hope it becomes bigger than rock ‘n’ roll,” says band leader Justin Burke. Rooted in various forms of American music, “Dark Country” is reminiscent of legendary musicians John Prine and Neil Young, with a smattering of Jim Morrison, and resembles contemporary artists, The Avett Brothers—but Burke is creating his own unique style of Americana music, where rock ‘n’ roll meets folk music.

James Justin & Co. follows their 2009 debut album, “Southern Son, So Far,” with “Dark Country,” due to be released nationally in July. “Dark Country” delivers a driving Southern rock beat, mixed with the haunting, sometimes sentimental strings of bluegrass, country, and folk. Add the power of brass horns and throw in an organ and piano, and J. J. & Co. cannot be pigeon-holed.”

The band will be touring for the next several months to promote Dark Country. If these guys are in your area, go to them! You will not be disappointed.

Local Musician Spotlight: Cary Anne Hearst and Michael Trent

Writer Alexis Comer had the good fortune of hearing Cary Anne Hearst and Michael Trent play as Shovels and Rope at the Charleston Pour House on James Island recently and was blown away by their bare-bones style, vocal power and musicianship. Cary Ann has a voice that brings to mind country, punk and soul all at once and it is a perfect match for Michael’s easy tenor that has just enough twang to it. Both these musicians are very good on their own but together there is a genuine sharing and collaborative feeling that takes their music to the next level. Expect a foot stompin’ rockin’ good time with this musical-powerhouse duo.

Cary Ann Hearst & Michael Trent prefer to keep it simple. They have cleverly managed to take three separate recording projects and combine them into one cohesive, folk rock, sloppy tonk, harmonized, loose but tight, streamlined audience killing machine. Both musicians have been part of the local scene here in Charleston for years but are now touring all over the country. Go to see them soon before they hit the big time.
