Daphne’s Southern Napa — a former farmhouse now home to a vast selection of fine wines and craft beer — will host a “Live on the Lawn” concert May 6 that will serve as an album release party for local favorites Willie Sugarcapps. It will also be the pre-party for Southern Napa’s “99 Beers on the Lawn” event the following day.
Their new album, “Paradise Right Here,” maintains Willie Sugarcapps’ deep roots in classic Americana while dipping its toes into a variety of other styles. Once again, the group’s vocal harmonies are impeccable. “Dreamer’s Sky” and “The Highway Breaks My Heart” are notable for their intricate, eclectic modern bluegrass styles. “Intentions of My Heart” is probably the album’s most interesting song. Even though this track is highlighted by heavy acoustic instrumentation, “Intentions of My Heart” maintains the vibe of classic Southern alt. rock.
