For Lucy Tight and Wayne Waxing of Hymn for Her, ‘Drive Til U Die’ is more than an album title. It’s a manifesto. A mantra. But to call this Americana duo road warriors would be a misnomer; to them, the road isn’t a battleground to conquer, it’s their beloved home. A nomadic tribe with their young daughter, they dwell in a ’61-vintage Bambi Airstream towed by a Ford van whose odometer shows nearly half a million miles – a trip to the moon. And back. Sleeping to the rhythm of spinning wheels, they thrive on spontaneity, friends and the moments that make it worthwhile: when they stand onstage and unleash their dynamic yin-yang of high-octane outlaw rockers and honey-sweet, harmony-laden ballads.
28 years together, many tours around the globe, thousands of shows and a dozen of albums under their belts, these guys are the real deal. They play their music so well that that it’s hard to believe BB AND THE BLUES SHACKS are actually from Germany. Their mixture of blues and rhythm and blues with a touch of early soul, gave the band a solid base of faithful fans all over Europe, America and the rest of World.
