ALMSHOUSE plays original rock that maybe reminds you of classic 1970s female-fronted acts (think Fleetwood Mac, Heart, Linda Ronstadt) or maybe modern singer-songwriters with a pop/rock edge (Sheryl Crow, Jonatha Brooke). The band’s 2016 release “Bitter Thing” flirts with Americana while displaying a slight progressive tinge. The Almshouse trademark — dual electric guitar leads that wrap harmonically around each other — is used to powerful effect in the band’s newest release, Gaslight. Almshouse has also been exploring stripped-down acoustic versions of their tunes that showcase thoughtful lyrics, Irene’s sultry “burnished alto” voice, very handsome fretwork by Troy, Ken & Tony, and James’s tasteful drumming.
