Episode 34: Jason morton and the chesapeake sons, "Matacumbe"
Jason Morton and The Chesapeake Sons owe their geographical roots to the Atlantic seaboard, but its sonic heritage connects the band firmly to The Black Crowes, the Allman Brothers Band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, and the Marshall Tucker Band. With Jason Morton and The Chesapeake Sons, a 10-track collection on indie Copperline Music Group, the multi-piece ensemble blends effusive melodies, fierce musicianship, convicted vocals, and smart lyrics in a diverse song stew that dips – in Southern-rock fashion – into rock, blues, country, gospel, and even psychedelia. Jason Morton and The Chesapeake Sons are a talented bunch, but they’re also a working-class group, determined to keep a firm hold on the everyday-American spirit at the heart of their music. Check out this version of "Matacumbe" in our 78 Volkswagen Bus as we roll through the streets of Nashville. #Project615 presents the #615BusSessions, celebrating the spirit of Music City from our 1978 Volkswagen Bus, “Dolly.” Ride along with us and check out a brand new episode every other Monday. #615BusSessions
