It’s pretty audacious to follow the line “…I always thought you were so instrumental” with a mini-guitar break. Simply because it can fall one of two ways – corny or inspired. On The Coffis Brothers’ new song ‘Ramona‘ it’s the latter – this is a song that’s just infectiously positive of mood and acts as a perfect example of what co-frontman Kellen Coffis describes as “all-American music – there’s rock, blues, acoustic folk, and country in there. As music fans, we go all the way back to the beginning — to pioneers like Buddy Holly and the Everly Brothers — but we also look to artists like the Eagles and Tom Petty for influence. That’s our playbook.”
‘Ramona‘ is taken from the Californian siblings fifth studio ‘Turn My Radio Up,’ which is due April 29 on Blue Rose. Kellen explained the album title by saying “We have always loved the radio. You can listen to one station and hear something you’ve never heard anywhere else, or you can listen to the classic rock station and hear music that hearkens back to yesteryear. Our music does both of those things, too.”
