It’s a bill of voices of such strength and oddness to jar even the
drunk chatterers in the back into attention. Hendrix alum Dana
Falconberry, who’s currently carving out a name for herself in the
Austin, Texas, indie-folk scene, sings in a voice that’s delicate but
capable of great, sweeping dynamism. With one EP under her belt,
Falconberry’s promising a full-length sometime this year. If “Love Will
Never Leave You Alone,” the album’s bewitching debut single, is any
indication, she’s soon likely to be known well beyond Austin and
Arkansas. Maybe a little farther on a similar trajectory, Chris Denny
and the Old Soles return home after a two-week swing through Oklahoma,
Texas and Louisiana. With the addition of guitar whiz Judson Spillyards
to the line-up and marathon daily practice sessions, Denny and the Old
Soles lately seem to be less the Chris Denny show — though Denny’s
preternatural voice is still a highlight — than a band pursuing the
Allman Brothers model, playing Southern rock graced with a touch of
blue-eyed soul: music that’s jam-y in the best way.
