Details

The Grahams are New York grown, Nashville based couple Alyssa and Doug Graham. With stellar songwriting and bold arrangements, the new record is a love letter to the timeless pop albums Alyssa and Doug grew up with, harkening back to a time when Brian Wilson, Nancy Sinatra, Dusty Springfield, The Ronettes and Diana Ross & The Supremes ruled the airwaves.

The 2015 follow-up, Glory Bound, influenced by the couple’s train adventure all over America, was declared, “easily one of the best Americana albums of the year” - No Depression. Rattle the Hocks, a film directed by North Mississippi Allstars’ Cody Dickinson, chronicled the journey and became an international film-festival favorite.

With their new album, comes a new sound. Kids Like Us, is a love letter to timeless pop albums, harkening back to when Brian Wilson & Dusty Springfield ruled the airwaves. Written during a wild motorcycle ride along Route 66, at the height of the 2016 election season, the chaotic stimulus they witnessed was channeled into bold, aching melodies that grew out of motel-room whispers and studio experimentation. “Everything about Route 66 – the neon signs, motels, cars, the menus – are stuck in a different time,” Alyssa says. As a result, the music has moments of fantasy & the supernatural. It’s big, lush, ambitious & profoundly satisfying with its own unique alt pop sensibility
