Amanda Earhart’s sound is hard to categorize. Think today’s pop, but
with fewer thump-thump club beats and synthesizers, traded for more
undoctored vocals and guitar. Throw in a dash of country twang and a
sprinkling of piano and violin, and that’s a start.
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.

My favorite of Christopher Guest's mockumentaries is easily 2000’s Best in Show. While I think it helps to be a theater nerd to appreciate 1996’s Waiting for Guffman in full or a folk nut to opt for 2003’s A Mighty Wind, “must love dogs” is no requirement here. Love man’s best friend or hate him, the humor in Best in Show is less inside-baseball than its brothers.
