Friday Favorites - The Cactus Blossoms
I'm very excited about the new recording by The Cactus Blossoms which releases on January 22. It's now available for pre-order.
You're Dreaming is the national debut of acclaimed roots music duo The Cactus Blossoms. Led by brothers Jack Torrey and Page Burkum, the band started as a vehicle for the siblings to hone their harmonic abilities on classic American songs with minimal instrumentation. They quickly amassed a fervent fanbase in Minnesota's Twin Cities and found themselves on public radio's A Prairie Home Companion.
Produced by JD McPherson, the 10 original songs on You're Dreaming showcase the incredible seamless vocals of the brothers in the time honored tradition of blood harmony akin to The Everly Brothers. The danceable "Stoplight Kisses" and "Clown Collector" deliver memorable, infectious melodies, while the heartfelt ballad "Queen of Them All" and the introspective "If I Can't Win" demonstrate their natural and superior songwriting prowess.
Infusing elements of early rock-n-roll and classic country while tracing their musical heroes footsteps back to the roots, The Cactus Blossoms have arrived with a sound that is uniquely their own.
