SONG PREMIERE: Louisville Americana Outfit Bridge 19 Serves Consummate Americana Pop Via "The Truth" - Glide Magazine
Like a fine Kentucky bourbon, the Louisville band Bridge 19 has come of age with its new album In the Afterglow (out 4/26). Mature and bold but sweet and satisfying, Bridge 19 offers it most revealing and meaningful songs to date.
“The Americana outfit borders somewhere along the lines of seamless harmonies ala The Watson Twins and country tinged rock fringing on pioneers of Americana Wilco and The Jayhawks. Just that good red dirt roots rock that holds steady and grips onto you like caked mud in the treads of your shoe. The kind of songs that you carry along with you, sometimes, without even realizing as the melody lingers in your head long after the song ends. The voices of frontwomen Audrey Cecil and Amanda Lucas intertwine and become one, then if you listen deeply (and you should) you can really pick them apart. It’s tough to manage that balance. Not all singers can do it. Its super impactful. Partially haunting and partially a siren-esque allure that draws you in closer for a listen.” - RED LINE ROOTS

It all goes back to MySpace (for younger readers that was.... oh, never mind) - that's where Bridge 19's frontwomen Audrey Cecil and Amanda Lucas came across each other's music - and soon started working as a duo. They'd actually know each other as kids, but had headed off to different colleges and unbeknownst to each other had taken up songwriting.
