Album Review

When Nirvana and Pearl Jam went through the roof commercially in the early '90s, there was a real "out with the old, in with the new" attitude in the rock world. That was when music loosely defined as alternative rock, or alternative pop/rock, took over in a major way; from then on, most Baby Boomer artists were considered old-school rather than cutting edge. But despite all that early-'90s upheaval, roots rock never went away — and in some cases, bands have found ways to blend alt rock and roots rock. It isn't necessarily done in a calculated fashion; it's doubtful that most alt rock/roots rock bands that emerged in the '90s or 2000s actually sat down and consciously said, "OK, let's combine Tom Petty, John Cougar Mellencamp, or Bruce Springsteen with Live, Creed, or Pearl Jam. But that has been the type of result a band can get when it unites different influences from different eras. Like Tonic, Cracker, and Train, Ingram Hill has one foot in roots rock and the other in alternative pop/rock — and on their first full-length album, June's Picture Show, the Memphis residents pull it off with good taste and sincerity. The bluesy, gritty earthiness of this material underscores the band's southern roots, but Ingram Hill are hardly a rip-off of Lynyrd Skynyrd, .38 Special, or the Outlaws. While those were whiskey-soaked party bands that thrived on redneck stereotypes — they were like the Dukes of Hazard with electric guitars — Ingram Hill bring a lot of introspection and sensitivity to the table. And they also show an ability to simultaneously draw on influences that are alternative (Tonic, Cracker) and non-alternative (Mellencamp, Tom Petty, the Black Crowes). June's Picture Show falls short of magnificent, but it's a solid, well-crafted, and respectable effort from the Tennessee natives.

Biography

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '00s, '10s

Contrary to what some might assume, Ingram Hill is not of the name of a solo artist but rather, a band; no one in Ingram Hill is actually named Ingram Hill (just like there was never a musician named Lynyrd Skynyrd or Jethro Tull — at least not in either of those well-known '70s bands). Like Cracker, Train, and Tonic, Ingram Hill has an earthy, unpretentious approach that is relevant to both alternative pop/rock and roots rock. The Memphis-based foursome aren't an exact replica of classic rockers...
