Overman are four dudes from Illinois.
Overman say that they “understand [Berkeley Place's] contributions to the collective music scene and thus the emotional state of the world.” And I can’t tell if they’re being sarcastic or honest.
Overman sound like southern rock with an acoustic, soft-ish side–like music you’d hear in a Dead show parking lot or a college dorm.
Overman’s music, however, is unmistakably honest.
Overman should appeal to you if you like Dave Bromberg, Drive-By Truckers, John Prine, Ryan Adams, old fashioned rock and roll, or well-crafted barburners.
Overman have a lighters-up, sing-a-long anthem called “You’ll Feel Better If You Sing” that made me sway while cooking pancakes for my two little boys.
Overman’s album is nine bucks at Amazon.
