The Arc Angels (Doyle Bramhall II, Charlie Sexton, Chris Layton, and Dave Monsey) rocked Antone’s for a two night stand this past weekend. Doyle and Charlie have been so busy with other projects, it’s always nice when they have time to play Arc Angels shows. Doyle and Justin Stanley (Eric Clapton) co-produced Sheryl Crow’s new album 100 Miles From Memphis (release date is July 20). Doyle is touring with her in support of the album this summer and fall. 100 Miles is a significant shift for Sheryl towards more funk and soul-oriented music, evoking the likes of Delaney and Bonnie, Sly Stone, and Al Green. For Sheryl, it’s not so much a departure from her previous musical trajectory but more of a return to her roots. I cannot imagine enlisting any better funky, soulful producing talent for such a task than Doyle. They’ll be in Austin at The Backyard on August 28 for what is sure to be an awesome show. Charlie is still touring with living legend Bob Dylan. They just wrapped up an extensive international tour and will be launching their North American tour in Austin at The Backyard on August 4. Be sure to catch Doyle and Charlie when they come through Austin or a town near you with these great tours!
