The Everybodyfields heat up The Pour House

Temperatures dropped into the teens last night in the Triangle, but The Everybodyfields kept the crowd at The Pour House warm with their soulful country tunes.

The band's singers, Sam Quinn and Jill Andrews, have beautifully complimenting voices that rival Gillian Welch and David Rawlings. Their harmonies and vocal interplay are amazing and were displayed throughout the night on songs like "Aeroplane" (click to download) and "Everything Is Okay."

Sam Quinn was feeling under the weather all night and coughed between songs and even between lines, but his tenor voice still sounded great despite what he called "singing through a goiter."

Pedal steel player Tom Pryor filled out the top end of the group's sound while guitarist and keyboard player Josh Oliver complimenting the band beautifully with subtle guitar licks and somber piano tones.

One of the highlights of the night was a song Sam introduced by saying "here's a song written by a bald guy." It was The Smashing Pumpkins tune "Today." They played it beautifully with soaring harmonies. The Everybodyfields played the song with more conviction than The Smashing Pumpkins did back in Greensboro back in November.

The Everybodyfields will return to the Triangle on Friday, March 7 to open for Chatham County Line at Cat's Cradle.
