Somebody's Darling @ Hill Country NYC
While the voice of Amber Farris started off the night somewhat smooth and reserved, carefully waiting for Wade Cofer to get his bass pounding, soon enough Somebody's Darling was ready to bring on the heat. Opening the show with "Bad Bad," from their 2014 release Adult Roommates, Somebody's Darling brought to New York City that Southern blues-rock which the state of Texas has been happily endorsing for several years.
Originally from Dallas, the band has now relocated to Nashville to take in the musical influences, write some new songs, and record a new album. It appears the Lone Star State's loss is a benefit for other areas of the country, as the move allows the band a road more easily traveled. Their current tour has taken them into the Northeast, for the first time since they appeared at the CMJ Music Marathon in October, before taking the southern route back to Nashville, Texas, and points... many points west. This night the vibe of Somebody's Darling fit right in with the Texas BBQ being served at Hill Country in NYC.
