From the Label head:
In April 2011, I went to Memphis to see the legendary Jerry Lee Lewis play. I met Misty White on this trip.
I found out, thanks to her, the real Memphis, Midtown. Down there, the ghostly scent of its glorious past is still in the air, surrounding your body and tickling your mind.
I met wonderful people who make Midtown a place apart, and I am indebted to them forever for their Southern hospitality and kindness. They shared with me the music history of the city, the one which is never referenced in the touring guides. I learned from them a lot, much more than reading books. In truth, I learned what is never told.
Here is their music - the sound of Midtown - Bang! Records wants to share with you !
