About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: September 28, 2010
  • Artist / Band: American Aquarium
  • Hosting Show: Bittersweet Melody
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

American Aquarium creates heedful alt-country where piano and pedal steel guitar circulate along a background of steady drums and electric guitars. The Raleigh, N.C. band fuses its lyrics of heartaches, mistakes and forces of nature with emotionally charged melodies.

Songwriter and guitarist BJ Barham, pianist Zack Brown, bassist Bill Corbin, drummer Kevin McClain, lead guitarist Ryan Johnson and pedal steel guitarist Whit Wright are friends of the road. They appeared in St. Louis at Off Broadway on September 28, 2010 and then headed off to Columbia and then Kansas City. The band's latest release is Small Town Hymns, which the Nine Bullets blog hailed for its "underlying theme of people trying get out of their self-defined limits, beliefs, towns and habits, even though everyone, including themselves, know they’ll probably fail."
