ReviewShine Wednesday: Screen Door Porch

Posted in Screen Door Porch on May 5, 2010 by AmericanaPulse

We head out west for today’s artist… Screen Door Porch.

Screen Door Porch is a duo composed of singer/songwriters Seadar Rose and Aaron Davis. As a duo, they are currently based out of Jackson, WY, but both Rose and Davis have roots in the American South (Rose from North Carolina & Davis from Kentucky). It’s no surprise then, that their music grows out of the Southern soil as well.
For their self-titled debut, Rose and Davis traveled to Austin, TX to record twelve songs that are rooted in easy folk grooves that are fleshed out with various other elements. Like The Cassandras from a few weeks ago, Rose and Davis share lead vocals from track to track. Both also play various acoustic and electric guitars as well with Davis also adding banjo, mandolin, and harmonica to the mix. In the song I’m sharing here, Davis’ electric dobro and harmony vocals are the perfect compliment to Rose’s rasped delivery. The song asks if this is “death or thrill.” I’ll let you decide.
