Roots Song of the Week: Fearing & White- We Came Together   Leave a comment

untitledStephen Fearing & Andy White have been crisscrossing the northwestern US and western Canada for a month or more now, and each time I read a tweet about their latest backtracking I wonder to myself, “Who did the routing on this tour?” They wrapped things up in Winnipeg this weekend, and (I believe) have more shows coming up in July.

For those unfamiliar with Fearing & White, a (very) brief background: Stephen Fearing is the pretty member of Blackie & the Rodeo Kings and Andy White is Andy White. Their second album together is called Tea and Confidences and it is a fair blast.

“We Came Together” is my favourite song on the album, simply because it is one of those songs that cries out for  a sunroof and spring. Fearing & White go full-frontal Everlys on this track, so much so that the spirit of Boudeloux Bryant is likely to send his bird dog out to track the boys down should they ever make their way near the vicinity of Nashville’s Woodlawn Memorial Park.

I have no idea what the song is about.

It sounds great. You can listen to it here:

And you should.

Gary Craig is fast becoming my favourite Canadian roots drummer.

Thanks for visiting Fervor Coulee. Donald
