The Ballroom Thieves (May 10, 2015)

I'm not exactly sure why, but I love it when a modern bound adds a cello to their lineup.  Not just for a song or two, but as an integral part of their band.  Years ago I loved a band called "Verbow" that did just that and now I am enjoying the fantastic sounds of The Ballroom Thieves, who beautifully use the cello as a focal point of their music.  Their debut full length album, "A Wolf in the Doorway" is out now and really wonderful. Music full of warm sounds, great harmonies and incredible song writing.  Some of their music sounds somewhat similar to The Lumineers or The Lone Bellow but that cello just adds something special. Start with the amazing song "Wild Woman" and then just keep listening, there is a lot to like!

Have a great week and enjoy the music!
