"Time to spread the word about Ethan Gardiner and Mamie Lew Gardiner, a husband-and-wife duo who perform as A Rake and The Rosebud."

“Some of my favorite bands right now come out of Alabama, and we were fortunate to have a lot of them at CXCW. Check out Doc Dailey, Some Dark Holler, Wooden Wand and Duquette Johnston. New to me Alabama bands include A Rake and a Rosebud, The Pollies, The Bear and Belle Adair.”

“They have that traditional rapport, like Johnny and June, when they play together. Their deep-South roots show, and while those old influences are apparent, so is their style.”
