THE LOVE LIGHT ORCHESTRA
AMERICAN ROOTS PERFORMANCE: Come on Moon
AMERICAN ROOTS SONG: Come on Moon
TRADITIONAL BLUES ALBUM: Leave the Light On
The Love Light Orchestra, a 10-piece super group of seasoned Memphis musicians, was formed in 2016 to rekindle enthusiasm for the grand, orchestral sound of mid-20th century blues. Leave the Light On, the group’s sophomore effort and debut studio recording, contains original tunes and one choice cover and reinforces a future outlook while simultaneously honoring the context of its musical past.
“The album is an enticing nod to nostalgia, with a vintage, ‘50s retro feel. This band really wants to turn on its love light and let it shine on you (any band hip enough to name their group after Bland’s 1961 hit can’t be wrong, can it?). Listeners will be more than pleased to bask in the glow.” - Wayne Goins, Living Blues
