While Nashville continues to be a hotbed of eclectic sounds, some Music City bands still embrace the genre that made this town an epicenter of Southern music. Fort Defiance is a group that is filling its catalog with warm, classic country sounds riddled with folk overtones.
Three years ago, Jordan Eastman and Laurel Lane solidified a bond that is both marital and musical. As they began their married life together, their musical life began to flourish as well, with numerous shows across the United States.
Within the intimate space of The Listening Room of Mobile, Fort Defiance will bring their Azalea City audience the sounds of their latest album, “The Haunts of Youth.” This album embodies a cozy warmth throughout its 14 tracks.
Eastman and Lane mingle vocals upon a bed of Americana instrumentation and alternative folk and country arrangements, with a nod to the early days of both genres.
