Nashville-based Americana band The Traveling Ones delivers soulful harmonies and sentimental blues-rock in its debut album, Meet Me There. Released February 3, 2017, the all-original project is a collaborative effort from two solo artists who – more than capable apart – come together to create something truly special.
With shared influences that span decades and genres (Aretha Franklin, Norah Jones, The Black Crowes, The Beatles) the duo’s music is more about heart than labels or boundaries. Even so, it exhibits a consistently laid-back pattern of soulful blues-rock. “Like the sentimental ballads from Jason Isbell and Ryan Adams, the Traveling One’s style of Americana is rich in harmony and full of character,” wrote Tour Worthy of the couple’s unique, earthy sound.
