Southwire is an alchemical mixture that began as a collaboration between a folk singer and a rap group. Jerree Small's hauntingly beautiful voice and piano are the silk to Crew Jones frontman Ben (Burly Burlesque) Larson's leathery bravado. Pretty, deep, and weird melodies mutate into spoken word poems and firebrand preaching. Heaviness and swing are applied by the rhythm section with Matt Mobely on bass and Sean Elmquist on drums.
