From Funk You to Boyfriend’s collaboration with The Revivalists, The Merry Widow’s resurrection has already resulted in numerous unforgettable performances. This showbill will unite a Crescent City singer-songwriter with a pair of local notables. Sam Doores is no stranger to Mobile. Many have already witnessed his talent with projects such as Hurray for the Riff Raff and The Deslondes. Now, Doores is exploring the musical world on his own.
On March 13, this singer-songwriter will be releasing his self-titled debut. Three singles have acted as harbingers for this upcoming album. While these tracks maintain a mesmerizing sonic persona, this trio of songs generates curiosity for the rest of the album. “Let it Roll” is a grand, Big Easy soul anthem captured from the classic New Orleans scene that is seldom heard. “Other Side of Town” (featuring Alynda Segarra) is a bright, ’50s swamp-rocker that thrives from the chemistry between Doores and Segarra. “Windmills” uses poignant folk to provide a contrast to its companion tracks.
Doores will be in good company. Skate Mountain Records’ Abe Partridge will be making a rare local appearance. Whether promoting his music or his art, this popular singer-songwriter has been maintaining a full tour schedule filled with performances around the globe. Fans of The Underhill Family Orchestra will not want to miss La Famille. This project promises a “stripped-down version” of the popular folk-rock outfit.
