Live: The Morning After finds unlikely pop success

Posted by on Mon, Mar 18, 2013 at 5:58 PM

Turning to Jac Cain as The Morning After stepped off stage Friday night at The Pour House, I asked him for his impressions of the group: "You know," said the longtime sound engineer, "on paper it shouldn't work. But the thing is, it does."

On paper, The Morning After has all the traditional elements of a bluegrass band, plus a soul singer and drummer. What The Morning After has created is a good-time, pop-and-soul band backed with the sort of solid instrumentation that allows lead singer Rachel Koontz to let loose vocally.

Below, check two clips from Friday's performance.

"Where We'll Begin"

"Headlines"
