Founder/frontman Kurt Neumann has always thought of BoDeans as an American band. A “roots rock” label is one he’s always fought against, but Neumann soon came to realize that roots simply “meant blues, rock, country and soul all slammed together into one sound.” That’s what he’d call American-made music.
The Milwaukee-based band has released 10 albums prior to American Made. Their latest endeavor is a medley of country twang and guitar, southern soul and rock and honest lyrics.
American Made will come out next week on June 12, but you can listen to the album in its entirety in the streaming player below.
