Funny how these summer songs just keep popping up once it officially turns...summer.
St. Louis' John Henry & the Engine propose that they're "fighting the good rock and roll fight," and I can't really argue with that notion -- their sound would travel well on America's highways, racing past semis and rolling hills, fighting its way to a fine destination where guitars would rule the world. Henry's voice is something made from the gravel that rests on any breakdown lane, and you can hear its raw beauty in video for "Spinning Wheel" below.
John Henry & the Engine will be supporting Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit on Friday, June 29th, at The Sheldon in Saint Louis. Get your tickets here!
