About this Media...

  • Date Recorded: July 9, 2011
  • Artist / Band: Sarah & the Tall Boys
  • Hosting Show: The Back Country
  • Sound: Dan Kinney

Over the years Chicago has become a mecca for left-of-center country and roots bands. Sarah & the Tall Boys are the latest addition to the windy, twangy city.

Led by wild-at-heart country singer Sarah Potenza-Crossman, the band likes its country straight -- no amateurish punk chasers, no gimmicky fashion statements, no worn-out barroom clichés. For this Live at KDHX session, Sarah & the Tall Boys kick off with "Put On That Record," a gritty slice of contemporary honky tonk, then follow up with the Waylon-esque strut of "Life I Chose" and the betrayed isolation of "Shadow of a Doubt," sung with scratchy realism by Sarah. Finally, the band rips into "Last Two Dollars," and then they're off, ready to hit the lonesome highway again.
