500 Miles To Memphis Songs

On their debut release, the members of 500 Miles to Memphis (https://www.tradebit.com) pay homage to their two great musical passions: the raw power of punk and the lush instrumentation of classic country. The result is a record that's invigoratingly brash and heartrendingly honest.
--Michael Snyder, Cincinnati Enquirer

Excerpted from Cincinnati CityBeat (https://www.tradebit.com) ...
The subject of distance comes up a lot when talking with area trio 500 Miles to Memphis. There's obviously the name, indicating the distance between Cincinnati and Elvis' adopted hometown.
Then there's the matter of 500 Miles' heavy, which, almost miraculously, makes energized Emo/Punk and traditional Country music heavy like they were born to be inbred bunkmates. They are two heavys more than just a proverbial 500 miles apart, kinda like blending Polka and Death Metal. It's not Punkabilly or AltCountry, but a very distinct heavy that seamlessly merges the contemporary pining of Emo, the energy of Punk and the rowdy and hallowed ache-and-rumble of vintage Country & Western, all slathered in enticing Pop melodies.

It's almost as if 500 Miles to Memphis' heavy was in the air, just waiting for the band to finally catch up to it...
