Phot by Elena Reynolds

Sentimental Family Band, Georgia Parker

The next generation of Western swing is thriving in Austin, and Sentimental Family Band leads the way with the upcoming release of long-awaited debut LP Sweethearts Only on Tomika Records. The songwriting trio of Camille Lewis, Kyle Albrecht, and Matthew Shepherd expands to a full sevenpiece to fill out their sound, lacing classic Fifties-style country with touches of jazz and Bakersfield honky-tonk. Big Cedar Fever’s Georgia Parker sets up with new singles “Why Can’t It Be Me” and her take on Cindy Walker’s “Don’t Count Your Chickens.” – Doug Freeman
