The Everybodyfields - Nothing is Okay















This is my first post on Zak's blog. He invited me to contribute and keep it running in his absence during his upcoming trip to Europe. (By the way, my name is Dusty, I'm a friend of Zak's from Ohio. Nice to meet you.)

The Everybodyfields is one of my favorite bands, which I randomly encountered about 3 years ago on a camping trip in Pittsburgh at a now-defunct cafe called 'The Quiet Storm.' They were on a small tour (they're from Tennessee) and the crowd was sparse, but their show made a strong impression on me. Their style is a unique mixture of bluegrass and rock (leaning more toward the bluegrass side). The male and female singers (featured equally) weave some really remarkable vocal harmonies. The melodies tend to be bittersweet or just plain melancholy (although their are some notable dance-y exceptions) and their lyrics are often touching. I'm posting the newest of their three albums, "Nothing is Okay," which is their best album in my opinion (their second album, "Plague of Dreams", comes in a close second). Notable songs: Don't Turn Around, Be Miner, Tuesday. Get it here.

Hey, The Everybodyfields are really amazing. Unfortunately, I guess I'll never get the chance of seeing them perform live (they haven't been released here in Brazil). Do you have any plans of uploading "Plague Of Dreams"? Can't find it anywhere... Thanks!

Sure I'll work on doing that sometime soon.

While this is a great album, you may be misleading people while describing it as sounding like bluegrass. Thanks for the great tunes,

Yea on second thought alt-country is probably a better description. I'm not big into sub-genres.

for any local readers- The Quiet Storm is still in fact alive and kicking. Cheers to a great album though Dusty.
