Sadie and the Crooked Road – You’re Jukebox Heroines + Hero
Sadie and the Crooked Road is an indie/grunge/soul trio from Seattle, WA.
Influenced by groovin’ ladies like Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, and Janis Joplin, Sadie and the Crooked Road fuse an almost nu-folk with banjos, acoustic guitars, mandolins, and searing angst that feels right down home. This band next door masters the essentials of vocal harmonies and picking guitar lines that make their sonic space seem like a summer evening performance on your back porch.
Songs like “Find Me Shelter” hint at religious alienation, with its slide guitar, while “When I Get Where I Am Going” talks about traveling and keeping in touch with those you leave behind. It has a catchy hook that makes you want to clap along. This is my favorite song on their myspace. Sadie keeps it real and draws from that inner twang not everyone is willing to admit they love.
