Americana duo, Michigan Rattlers (consisting of Graham Young and Adam Reed), are excited to release the second track from their upcoming self-titled debut EP, “Sweet Diane.” PRESS HERE to listen exclusively via TheBluegrass Situation!
Similar to their first single “Illinois Sky,” “Sweet Diane” highlights the pair’s incredible storytelling abilities through song. “The story of ‘Sweet Diane’ as a whole is fictional, but there’s a lot of real stuff tied up in there,” says Reed. “It’s the story of a woman who has experienced love and then loss in her life. Something most all of us have felt at some point. And it’s about the struggle of her trying to move forward and her really coming to terms with the fact that life does go on. The past is always going to be with you but it doesn’t have to stop you from having new experiences. Ultimately, it’s a hopeful song.”
The pair have been hard at work establishing a name for themselves in the country/Americana world, and were recently featured in Rolling Stone’s “10 New Country Artists You Need To Know” with the publication applauding the twosome’s “evocative lyrics and shimmering vocal harmonies.”
Up next, the guys will be performing in Nashville on September 21stat TheBasement East during Americana Fest. Stay tuned for more exciting announcements in the coming weeks!
