Shaped and inspired by the American South, The Savage Radley is the brainchild of Shaina Goodman, a Kentucky-raised songwriter and Delta farmer’s daughter whose music stomps, twangs, and bangs with all the power of her homeland.
Mixing the storytelling tradition of classic southern writers with an amped-up soundcheck, Goodman views the groups debut “Kudzu” as another step toward the band becoming part of “a new wave of Southern rock.” It’s an album about where she’s from, stacked with songs that point to where she’s going. “I’m a real farmer’s daughter, singing about the things I know,” she explains. “It’s not hard to share my sense of place when I know figuratively and literally how a patch of land holds a world together.”
“Gritty, dirty, and haunting, Spencer’s meticulously crafted lyrics paint a vivid portrait of both the beauty and darker side of mountain life.”
