“The sky is the limit for this duo,” an observant reviewer noted of the Nashville singer/songwriter team, The Loose Hinges. Emerging above the congested Nashville scene, Eliot Houser and Kris McCarthy-Houser bring their intelligent and edgy brand to live music that is at once refreshing and unique. A tapestry of harmonies, rich guitar underpinnings, and sultry vocals are the hallmarks of The Loose Hinges.
The critics are quick to point out there is no stereotype in what the McCarthy-Housers produce. In the truest sense, The Loose Hinges are indie artists.
Some of their best tunes are rootsy; others are decidedly Americana; more are unmistakably rock. The standouts, however, go even deeper exploring the traditional roots of blues and jazz with Eliot’s uniquely structured, layered guitar work while Kris’s seductive vocals float like silk with an authenticity that’s hard to find.
There’s an insatiable hunger for music that is honest, dimensional, and poignant. With the release of their self-titled debut in 2011, to their fortcoming LP titled, “Nothing’s Permanent” their music is far from evanescent, but rather, getting tighter with each Loose Hinge project. The band will start recording a new LP in August, 2014.
