Nashville all-American rock and rollers Maradeen hit Congress Street this week.
In 2014, guitarist Whit Murray, keyboardist Kaitlyn Connor, and bassist Sterling Miller began jamming, bringing their classical and jazz backgrounds to a refreshing rock sound.
Their first LP, Mirage, arrived in 2015, boasting Southern Rock inflection, smooth harmonies, and up-tempo, sing-a-long melodies penned by Murray and new collaborator Thomas Galloway.
After some heavy touring, the band recorded a second LP, Above the Horizon, with MOON TAXI’s Wes Bailey in the producer’s chair. The album features hard-rocking elements (“Deal with the Devil”) balanced with folky Lumineers-style ease (“Livin’ for the Weekend”), offering a well-rounded tour of their American music influences.
