NASHVILLE, TN –  (Jon Freeman, Rolling Stone Magazine.  Please Click on the link above to read the full story, and the video to Low Down and Lonesone.  Here is an excerpt below.)

One Tuesday per month in 2017, singer-songwriter Kendell Marvel has been holding court at Nashville’s famed Exit/In, a humble venue with a long history in both rock and country circles. Marvel, a veteran Nashville songwriter with hits by Gary Allan (“Right Where I Need to Be”) and Chris Stapleton (“Either Way”), brings out fans and guests for rowdy evenings of outlaw-styled country rock, a sound he explores to the fullest on his new solo album Lowdown & Lonesome.

Lowdown & Lonesome” is a bluesy, riff-heavy rocker that calls to mind the restless Southern rock of the Allman Brothers Band and Hank Williams Jr.’s whiskey-soaked howl. A portrait of a man sinking into a deep depression after a rough breakup, “Lowdown” was penned by Marvel, Keith Gattis and Randy Houser and ultimately formed the stylistic center of the new album.
