THE SMOKING FLOWERS
“Someday” - The Smoking Flowers
Coming to Hey Joe’s Thursday, February 28—The Smoking Flowers!
“Husband-wife duo Scott and Kim Collins, a.k.a. THE SMOKING FLOWERS from East Nashville, TN, have forged a new direction. Also founding members of Pale Blue Dot, an enthusiastic and edgy rock alt-country band, Scott and Kim have branched out on their own, carrying forward where Gram Parsons and Emmylou Harris left off in their day. The Smoking Flowers have delivered beautifully produced, sometimes moody, Americana/Country songs with knockout harmonies in their debut album Sweet as Port. Less traditional than your classic country-folk duo, they triumph on a new style by bringing a punk-attitude and energy to their highly infectious songs. Kim has a fierce and dynamic voice, but with the ability to produce tenderness, displayed beautifully on the dragging ballad “Whiskey Tongue” and the Buddy-and-Julie-esque tandem “Crime To Fall”. The dark and threatening “Female Casanova”, accompanied by a howling violin, is a highpoint on this wonderfully attractive debut album.”
