Rachel Brown and the Beatnik Playboys 

When: Sat., Feb. 17, 8 p.m. 2018
Price: $15
Singer-songwriter Rachel Brown's religious parents regularly listened to old-time country music and that left a lasting impression. As a result, the Medina native grew up listening to George Jones, Merle Haggard and Loretta Lynn. Initially, it took years for Brown to issue her studio debut, 2012's Just Look My Way. But she's become more prolific in the wake of that release. Her new album, last year's Look Who's Back, represents her third album with her backing band, the Beatnik Playboys. Brown & Co. recorded Look Who's Back with engineer Paul Hamann at his Suma Recording Studios in Painesville. Brown's supple voice sounds terrific on tunes such as the twangy "Blue Diamond" and "Texas Moon," a song that features the Cleveland Orchestra violinist Emma Shook, whom Brown met through the side project Sisters in Song. Shook plays on four songs. Tunes such as the rollicking title track feature bar room piano fills and bluesy vocals. It's good stuff. (Niesel)
