The Walcott is a band from Los Angeles, with a great lineup. Unlike suggesting playing the cover of this CD includes the band of nine people. The band name originated from the song by The Band "The WSWalcott Medicine Show". Their music clearly has roots and Rock & Roll members of The Band and bands like Little Feat. With an American tour they were the support act for Chris Stapleton. The band exists since 2012 and has built a great reputation before they release their first release. In September 2016 they released their debut album Let The Devil Win. The core of the band consists of Tom Cusimano, Guitar, Vocals; Laura Marion, Vocals; Jim Olson, Drums; Devin Shea, Violin, but will gladly extended to the aforementioned nine-piece band with horns and pedal-steel. The debut album may have been, for me, a pallet of roots styles. In the opener Should've Been Me you will be surprised by a sound that is full of horns, a lingering song in a swampy style. Of course told there are influences, but also by the rich sound and sounding compositions a distinct sound. In the title song Let The Devil Win and Helping Hand is more rock and roll, but remains by the horns New Orleans (musically) home.
