Music Made Me: Josh Hogsett

Few, if any, Oklahoma bands have seen a rise as meteoric as Tallows over the past year, yet its seemingly overnight ascension didn’t happen by chance. The Oklahoma City four-piece is well-versed in the ways of modern pop songwriting, drawing from both glitchy electronica and cathartic indie rock in equal measure. Last year, the band pulled off a rare musical feat with its debut album, Memory Marrow, which was steeped heavily in the breadth of recent history yet managed to sound like nothing else before it.

Planting the seed

Chelsey Cope’s new band, Elms, is as earthy and native to Oklahoma as the trees that are their namesake. The soulful folk four-piece’s debut EP, Parallel Lines, was recorded at Bell Labs Recording Studio in Norman and is on its way in September. But the band has already given us a tease, with its first single, “Burn,” going live on SoundCloud on July 14.

Camille Harp


None February 19th, 2009

Alone, with just her voice and guitar, singer/songwriter Camille Harp is measured and confident. Fronting a band, however, the Oklahoma City musician is in full command. Bolstered by a studio group and layers of picking, drumming, plucking and strumming Harp has released an energetic, self-titled album that forgoes folk in favor of catchy country-pop.


This isn't a fragile, temperamental country car fueled by lament, turning over when broodingly coaxed. This album is a pickup with Tennessee plates that's already running. "When I Get to Hell" steers Harp's new album with an afterlife adultery revenge fantasy. Fiddles and steel guitars flood the swamp while Harp honks and tonks that "killin' him once was just not enough."


Album opener "Don't Go" is oppositely fiery' an upbeat, apologetic anthem of determination to do right by a "caged bird," prepping to take flight after a little "feather ruffling." Harp promises to hold tight, crooning if "you'd stay tonight, I'll make it worth your while." Believe her. "Love Song" is tender and slow, but not broken. Similarly paced, "I'm Gone" features a distant Harp singing cleanly and plainly over simple acoustic strumming and slide guitar echoes.


There's more than a little Natalie Maines bubbling in Harp. Great musicianship, transparent production and a pop-perfect country voice meet to make her new album flirty, fun and just enough trouble."”Joe Wertz
