“I received a copy of DoubleWide Debris debut Cd and threw it into the CD changer...DAMN!…It has been on repeat all day.
This six piece band from Southern Illinois is a band that will be hard to pin down, They have blended Southern Rock, Alternative, Alt Country, and Classic Rock into a unique sound with each member bringing a little something to the table.
Vocalist Traci Carter has a strong, slightly raspy voice that demands your attention.
Keith Chapman has a fantastic lead guitar tone with biting leads that are well placed and not over played.
Bill Thomas on Bass guitar and Gary MacPhee on drums make up the driving rhythm section. Founding members Mark Chapman and Carson Baker fill out the band with their electric and acoustic guitars and mandolin.
The song writing is excellent, recording is well mixed and has a great sound. I would have to rate this disc 5 stars!!!
I am looking forward to catching this act live on stage later this summer.”

"Looking at the cover of DoubleWide Debris’ Seven More Days to Someday, one of the cleverer album titles any listener will ever hear, no one can doubt their experience and southern rock credentials"..."The dual guitar attack of father and son team Mark and Keith Chapman provides a driving force that brings to mind modern country rock outfits like Drive By Truckers, Lucero, and Heartless Bastards." ..starts out strong with “Pond Creek” an anthem to southern living and leisure... “I Don’t Think So” lead singer Traci Carter channels a boozy Loretta Lynn meets Reba McEntire meets Tanya Tucker.....“Ain’t It Easy” a country power ballad...“Strange World”, the average Joe being held down by the man...“Let Me Up” Traci is the loyal woman scorned by an unfeeling man. “Tune Town” reflects the band’s desire to avoid the polished Nashville sound...“Wall to Climb” unlike anything else on the record...“Picture”.....is as pure and beautiful as almost anything
"This six-piece from rural Southern Illinois comes off like a ramped up Southern rock band on Seven More Days to Someday...Majority of these songs feature feisty Traci Carter singing lead. “Like I Am” is autobiographical in the way its lyrics speak about a woman who is not ashamed to be exactly what and who she is....This album’s title track says many of the same things...It basically asserts the band’s southern rock identity, its “ragged company,” if you will. The track is also this album’s best rocker.... “Strange World,” comments on the way it’s tough to get ahead.... “Tune Town,” appears to address the struggles involved in having success in the music business... You have to love a group with enough confidence to have a laugh at its roots. DoubleWide Debris, if you think about, is another way of saying trailer trash..."At its best, DoubleWide Debris proves that one man’s trailer trash is another man’s treasure."
““DoubleWide Debris kicks things off with a 1970’s rock sound that’s part Lynyrd Skynyrd...In spite of the edgy guitar-driven sound, there’s a lazy Sunday afternoon feel here that’s appealing. There’s blues in the song’s roots as well, making it an intriguing introduction to the band....old school R&B influence on “I Don’t Think So”. Watch out for some quietly impressive guitar work here, as Keith Chapman puts on a clinic in subtlety and musicality”
...“Seven More Days To Someday”, a vibrant, guitar-driven rocker that gets your toes tapping and your hips shaking...“Strange World” exploring the divide between haves and have-nots..“Let Me Up”, a catchy number about bad boys and their eventual payoff.. a comfortable groove with rockers “Live A Lie”, “Tune Town”, and “Go There”..The closing track, “Picture”....a solid number... DoubleWide Debris makes some interesting musical points delivering solid blues-influenced southern and folk rock wi”
