Kendell Marvel’s “Solid Gold Sounds” Made Rolling Stone’s Top 40 Country Albums of 2019

KBEAR’s good friend (and one of our favorite performers at the annual Backyard Country BBQ) Kendell Marvel, Made it to #11 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s Best Country and Americana Albums of 2019!    Kendell’s album is titled “Solid Gold Sounds”  Here’s what Rolling Stone had to say:

“Singer-songwriter Kendell Marvel found an approach that suited his sensibilities for his second album Solid Gold Sounds, which was produced by the in-demand team of Dan Auerbach and Dave Ferguson. Marvel’s outlaw persona — a big presence on his previous album — was able to sneak in and out of songs without wearing out its welcome, riding away one minute in the ominous “Hard Time With the Truth” and worrying about a hell-on-wheels woman in “Blood in the Water.” But the real revelations were in the softer, more delicate numbers like “When It’s Good,” in which he rhapsodized about a complicated love against a pillowy backdrop of harmonies and steel. And in his cover of the Bee Gees’ “I’ve Gotta Get a Message to You,” Marvel displayed a smooth, buttery croon that echoed Charlie Rich’s heyday — a mighty flex that didn’t require him to puff out his chest. J.F.”
