The Nouveaux Honkies are originally from Florida, but these days they call the road their home. This Americana duo literally travel around in an RV, which is pretty convenient when you happen to also be touring on a regular basis. Their new album Blues For Country, which comes out November 5th, reflects the rambling life with its melting pot take on American roots music ranging from bluegrass to honky tonk, rock and roll to R&B, and everything in between. It works too, as Tim O’Donnell and Rebecca Dawkins capture the humdrum groove of the road, always moving forward whether through a fiddle or a quickly picked guitar.
To record Blues For Country The Nouveaux Honkies found a cozy place to park their RV in the Texas Hill Country town of Dripping Springs just outside Austin. Feeling the warm vibes of the Hill Country, the duo recorded their album in eight days, letting their environment conjure up the spirits of legends like Townes Van Zandt and Doug Sahm. Glide Magazine is excited to premiere one of the standout tunes on Blues For Country, “Nobody’s Name”.
Reflecting on the song, Tim O’Donnell and Rebecca Dawkins say, ”‘Nobody’s Name’ is a song about wasted effort. All the time and worry spent trying to communicate and pick sides with those that will never have a true relationship with me. If the same effort was given to those that I truly love and love me, the outcome would be healthier for us all.”
