Nero Simon and the Sunsetters – “Waveland”

Nero Simon and the Sunsetters are back with their second album, “Waveland”, a record that brings Coastal Americana to life. “Waveland” is a lively odyssey along the shores, islands, and keys of the American South, avoiding typical Americana sceneries and settling in the center of sea-level harmonies. The Georgia-based band has made an album that not only celebrates the strength of Waveland, Mississippi, after Hurricane Katrina but also reflects the band’s resilience and spirit.

From the opener “Sail On Silver Girl”, the album journeys through a sea of ten original compositions, finishing with a soul-stirring cover of Gerry Rafferty’s “Baker Street”. The first single from the album, “Tell Me”, features the captivating voice of newcomer Mary Ann Ooten, adding a new layer to the band’s lush sound. “Waveland” represents the band’s talent to mix classic rock, soft-rock, and island rhythms in a unanimous escape, which is supposed to warm the hearts and evoke the desire for adventure. An embodiment of their genre-breaking boldness, “Waveland” is a light of hope and refreshment, calling on the listeners to accept the way ahead with open souls.
