Theo Lawrence & The Hearts, A flavour of the Deep South

This French group take us on a journey to the Deep South of the United States with their new album "Homemade Lemonade"...

By Max Dembo | Video of the Day | March 13, 2018

There is first of all a scent of the southern United States. Like a warm soul atmosphere. A velvet groove. And instruments of the last century like a good old Wurlitzer... From the first listening of Homemade Lemonade, it's impossible to not to think of Aretha Franklin, Joe Tex, Elvis, Creedence Clearwater Revival, Charles Ray, Tony Joe White even Neil Young. Closer to home, with Alabama Shakes, White Stripes, Don Cavalli ...

In short, the DNA of Theo Lawrence & The Hearts is not filtered by any sweetener and it is easy to understand that vintage music inspires and excites this young group. The surprise comes from where Theo and his accomplices originate, Paris! They are inhabited by a real passion mixing rock'n'roll, rhythm'n'blues, soul, blues and country: With their first album, these guys import the bayou into the French capital in less than two guitar riffs! Above all, Theo Lawrence & The Hearts line up real compositions and are not limited to just one sound. A real revelation in short
