Teenage Prayers indie blues Solomon Burke
Indie-blues-rawk combo the Teenage Prayers traded Ohio for New York City, where a chance meeting led Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Solomon Burke to invite them onstage to play with him. They made a good impression, and he invited them to the West Coast, where they recorded their upcoming LP with Dream Syndicate frontman Steve Wynn. And while we could say they're a little like the Black Keys, frontman Tim Adams does the band more justice when he describes it as "an unholy orgy between the Kinks, the Band, and Booker T. & the MGs, photographed by Mick Rock, and published as a centerfold in Hustler."
