I am really enjoying this duo:
They were great, and then they split up. I transcribed a bunch of their tunes and used them with guitar students. I wonder what John Paul White is doing now?
If you guys like The Civil Wars I would highly recommend a group called Delta Rae. Should be right up your alley.
Good music, but that womans demeanor somehow rubs me the wrong way.
It's a shame there will be no more, they had magic there for a while.
Big fan here. Sorry ending.
Or Gillian and David...
I know he played a significant part in the Documentary about Muscle Shoals and I heard some chatter at one point that he was doing some writing for the T.V show, Nashville.
You'll see a Letterman appearance and another couple of vids with Gregg Allman and others if you do a Youtube search.
After hearing his first album and some subsequent work makes me realize the Civil War songs were mostly his style.........despite the fact that he was barely in the mix in some of the second album tunes, in my opinion.
That first disc is fantastic. Great songs, great singing, great playing. Really marvelous. I too was bummed they grew to (seemingly) despise each other from what I recall.
I really dig them.
I hate to play the sexual tension card, but I don't know how that could not have been an issue, on some level. Their body gestures, eye contact, intimacy of the music, lyrical content, and her (IMO) very sexy stage moves...I can't imagine not throwing down at least once just to get it out of their system.
Unless JPW secretly couldn't stand her. But still...
Have you ever had a cat that just craves attention and just won't leave you alone and when you get mad at it, it sulks? That's the vibe I get from Joy. Being in a band with someone like that would make me crazy.
I have no idea what actually happened between them. It's too bad because they were at a level of success most bands would kill to get to and they threw it all away. And like a cat they'll probably land on their feet.
I'm guessing he tried, but she was married, and he couldn't deal with it. That lady is pretty hot.
Her husband was their tour manager, and he had a wife and kids at home and detested touring, allegedly.
The old "unstable triangle" - if you have three people in a situation, it always ends up 2 vs. 1.
One of the more appropriate "statement" photos for the cover of their last record, tho:
When two voices come together like this, complimenting each other with such intimate cohesion...it's just beautiful. I could listen to this all day.
This song kicks a**. Fact.
I know a girl kinda like that and when we sing together, it's magical. We just "fit". But, she's married. And… it sucks. The End.
Like the albums. Cannot stand her fluttery hand gestures in the clips I've seen. Better to listen to than to watch. ;-o
I loved this duo and agree their breakup was a musical shame. Wish they could put aside their differences and reunite.
Sometimes it seems like artists have a knack for snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.
He has become partner in an indie label called Single Lock Records( I think that is the name)has studio called Sundrop Studio
They also have a performance venue called 116 East Mobile Street
I will be stopping in there soon
