ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Florida roots rockers the Nine Volts have tapped into their Appalachian and Southern backgrounds to craft a debut EP of raw and beautiful Americana that hearkens back to the purity of alt-country’s beginnings. Ranging from country- and bluegrass-inspired ballads to rousing, mountain music rockers, the songs bring to mind early Son Volt, the Drive-By Truckers, and the melodic, tender side of classic Allman Brothers. With lyrics that illuminate themes of Romantic reflection, regret and redemption, and the real-life mythology of the South, singer/songwriter Conrad Wilson at times evokes the matter-of-fact, mournful soul of Townes Van Zandt and the optimistic, wide-eyed wonder of Gram Parsons.

Born in the South Carolina Upcountry in the foothills of the Appalachians, Conrad Wilson was exposed to country, bluegrass, and gospel music at an early age. He learned how to play guitar from the son of a bluegrass musician and later taught himself how to color his songs with mandolin, lap steel, and banjo.

After moving to Florida, Wilson forged a vital musical partnership with James Mitchell, the Nine Volts’ other core member. The two of them soon became important figures in Central Florida’s burgeoning independent music scene and took significant roles in some of the area’s leading bands, such as Lopez Jar and Red Soda. From their common love of indie-rock grew a common appreciation for Americana and roots music. The two soon came to the logical and heartfelt conclusion that they should start a band with a roots rock/Americana approach and thus was born the Nine Volts. Mitchell shares guitar duties with Wilson and helps bring the songs to life with his complementary style and inventive leads.

In addition to their inspired work in the studio, the Nine Volts have also honed their craft on stage in their successful live performances throughout Florida, garnering them glowing reviews from the local press:

"The Nine Volts band charges its music with some real bootleg soul…
[they are] a great roots rock group with an indie edge.”
— Florida Today

"Perfect slacker rock meets Americana…”
— Bees Knees Magazine (Athens, GA)
