You’ve got a Soul, let it all out, sound wild and loud
In late 2016, singer/guitarist Daniel Pearson (a prolific singer-songwriter with three quietly acclaimed albums behind him) teamed up with metal-loving drummer Mike Neilson.
Just like the well-known two piece band, The Black Keys, they create exciting rock songs with a fine taste for blues and vintage soul.
Together, they go by the name of Tooth & Nail, as their music consists in expressing all the passion and all the pain that sometimes feel like you’re pulling a tooth.
This explains the blend of old soul and blues with grunge rock and roll.
They’ve released their first of three 2017 single releases, Cryin For You.
The track has a sound similar to Nirvana and even modern Arctic Monkeys.
“I love a lot of old blues & soul records when you can really hear the pain and experience in the voices, and that’s what we were aiming for here – as well as laying down some big riffs and grungy fuzz.
That’s pretty much the mission statement of Tooth & Nail – soul songs played loud and heavy.”
