Minor Nine is an up and coming alternative rock band from my own hometown, Knoxville, TN. I love, love, love this band, and no, I'm not being biased. Their style represents music that comes from the heart. The vocals are soulful and beautiful, if not a bit haunting while the guitar, bass and drums provide the perfect backdrop. You can hear the talent in each element and while many of the tracks appear somewhat simple on the surface, as you listen, you can hear a delicate mingling of sounds that ultimately layer into something more complex. It's pretty incredible.
While many of Minor Nine's tracks stick to a more ballad-like melody, it's no reflection on their ability to rock. The track Fading Light proves that point well.
This band has what it takes to go straight to the top.
