Album Notes
The Southerners are a Honky-Tonkin Rockabilly band out of Southern California. With just an acoustic guitar, upright bass, and clean leads, The Southerners have managed to maintain thier rockabilly roots, yet still flat out rock. Lead by Celeste, whose vocal styling is all her own, The Southerners continue to move ahead with impressive originals, all the while paying tribute to the greats who make Rockabilly music what it is today.

I love the Southerners CD. It is a fast pace rockabilly cd with a country sounds. If you like rockabilly you will love this CD.

Nice female vocal and the right band to go with...
The Southerners are a young new American (California) combo that plays authentic and drumless rockabilly. Female vocalist Celeste Gilstrap is very well supported by the tight rhythm section of Justin Williams (slap bass) and Byron Williams (acoustic guitar) with fine interventions by lead guitarist Hector Mattos. They deliver a good mix of tunes, all originals but two, mostly penned by Byron Williams.,The album opens with the Mexican flavoured instrumental “Bandoleros”. “Barstool Rodeo” is a solid rockabilly where the team rhythm guitar/slap bass is perfect. Miss Gilstrap’s vocal is very personnal and you cant easily compare her to any other female singer but she would sound more like a female Johnny Cash ‘as you can hear on “Ripped In Two”. After a couple of another rockabilly tracks, you find “Lonesome Love” that slows the pace. That does not mean it’s a smooth tune but a very “menacing” rockin’ one with a nice “dirty” guitar. “Lovesick Man” is a “train song” with the adequate rhythm where both Celeste and acoustic guistarist Byron Williams sing. Gilstrap penned two song “Forget To Remember” and the beautiful “The Dance” another slow and haunting tune. “Goodbye 53” shows the acoustic side of the band with just the vocal and a guitar. This good album ends with a rockin medley of “Saint Louis Blues/Basin’ Street” that starts with just the voice, the guitar and a mandolin and then turns into a wild rockin’ tune before slowing a bit for “Basin Street” and then ends even faster.

As the previous reviews have stated this ablum is purely Awesome. I ran across the Southerners one night in Riverside Ca. and I was floored by their sound. Unfortunately, they were sold out of CD\'s by the time I got to the table, so here I am. If you ever have an opportunity to see this band, the show is ever bit as awesome as the CD... if not more so.
