Quiles & Cloud: Shake Me Now

Quiles & Cloud: Shake Me Now
Title: Shake Me Now
Label: Compass Records

2017 release. Shake Me Now is stripped-down, yet dense. There are musical and lyrical traces of the blues, bluegrass, folk, rock, soul, and classical music. Their songwriting stands out on the title track, "Shake Me Now" as well as the upbeat and hopeful "One My Way Tonight". In addition to their original songs, there are reinterpreted versions of the traditional blues number "Deep Ellum Blues", the traditional folk tune "Worried Man Blues", and Bob Dylan's "You Ain't Goin' Nowhere". One gets the feeling of being on a widescreen road trip through America's past and present, with multiple eras and traditions folding in upon each other. The result sounds familiar and road-worn, yet completely new a quality that Quiles & Cloud share with some of American music's greatest innovators.
