One in Three

Oklahoma City’s Nathan Mickle makes up a third of the new vocal group The American Three, dedicated to belting out standards.


Music

Louis Fowler
Press materials for The American Three tag the new vocal group as “fun and wholesome,” with a little Rat Pack thrown in “just for flavor!” It’s that extra flavor that Three member and lifelong Ol’ Blue Eyes fan Nathan Mickle believes fits his song stylings to a T.

Louis Fowler

Coffeehouse culture

Just why are we addicted to these places?


Food and Drink Features

Louis Fowler
For many people, coffee is just something you slosh out of a dirty convenience store decanter and gulp down each morning.

Citizen Fred — Citizen Fred


Rock

Louis Fowler
I’d be lying if I said I didn’t have a raucous good time with Citizen Fred’s self-titled disc. With guttural vocals and crunching guitars, it sounds like the background music to a scene in a buddy-cop film where the mismatched partners go into a sleazy strip club to shake down perps.

Dirty Red & the Soulshakers — Soul Shakin’


Rock

Louis Fowler
I know most purists would look middle-aged white guys playing soul music and immediately pass — I can’t count how many times I have — but damned if Dirty Red & the Soulshakers don’t rock the joint for all of its juke, lack of pigment notwithstanding.

Michael Summers — More


Jazz

Louis Fowler
This honky cat is really something else! Need proof? Just take a listen to his swingin’ version of the Elton John classic. Deep bass grooves, jaunty piano, smooth trumpet and sexy, crystalline vocals: This is the version to which all others now must live up.
