Elam McKnight had settled in West Tennessee and set up shop, constructing Magic Lantern Studio near Memphis, after over 12 years of recording and national and international touring. McKnight aligned himself with management, a publicist, and a booking agent, but he was missing one thing he had the luxury of in Nashville: a band. “I am in a great place personally and artistically,” he says, adding, “but I needed a unit to solidify the sound I was reaching for and I wanted West Tennessee boys to help me get it.”
With the addition of Dudley Harris, a 62 year old blues Man with over 45 years of experience playing juke joints and roadhouses all across the region, and Eddie Phillips, a rock n’ roll drummer with a love of the sounds of the 70s, the Elam McKnight Band was born.
“Radio”, the first single and title track from the band’s forthcoming album, seethes with
the universal theme of unrequited love with a soulful touch reminiscent of the Muscle Shoals or Stax era, a sound McKnight calls “Country Soul”.
Without further ado, Mother Church Pew presents “Radio” by the Elam McKnight Band:
