Unwed Mothers Review

On April 11, 2013, Unwed Mothers will release their self-titled debut album, introducing the music world to a blues/rock/folk/soul sound that is distinctly their own. Julie Adams, with her sultry, raw, and soulful voice, is the band’s front-woman. On guitar, Michael James will stun any listener with simple yet impeccable playing and catchy riffs. Kurtis Schultz on drums and Josh Eygenraam on bass lock in the rhythm and together these musicians play to create a polished sound.

The first song on the album, “Skeletons” begins with one of James’ catchy riffs as the rest of the band comes in with Julie’s unique voice. The song is definitely the hit of the album and gives a taste of Unwed Mother’s sound as a band.

“Lose Control” is a slow bluesy song on the album. Just when you may start to think you’ve heard what the gist of the song is, it builds with fills and wailing vocals that will blow your mind!

There are a couple tunes on the album that showcase the band’s softer side like “Cherry Grove” and “Slow.” They show more of that folk/rock feel the band has and the lyrics to these songs are beautifully written and sung.

Julie means it when she sings “I got soul, soul, soul” in their song “Soul.” The entire band plays with soul in every song on this album. If you haven’t heard this band, you’re definitely missing out.

The Review: 8.5/10
