Americana roots and soul are at the heart of The New Madrids' sound with a powerhouse rhythm section of Maurice McPherson on drums, Callum Keith on bass backing the incomparable Owen Nicholson on any variety of stringed creations. Ian Hutchison and Donny McElligott share lead vocal duties as well as the writing.
