The story of the Alabama Shakes began in a psychology class at East Limestone High School in Athens, Alabama. Budding guitarist
Brittany Howard asked fellow classmate Zac Cockrell if he wanted to jam. She stated that she only knew he was a bassist and
donned shirts that advertised cool bands that no one ever heard of. Soon the pair were meeting after school, penning songs
with a rootsy feel on Howard's floor. It was not long after that Howard set out to recruit Steve Johnson, who worked at the
only music store in town. She knew he played drums and invited him to a party. The pair was now a trio, receptive to Johnson's
punk-metal edge that he brought to the mix. They headed to Decatur, Alabama, to record some of their original material. Heath
Fogg, guitarist, joined the band after listening to the demo.
Although their main passion was writing their own songs, they also added some cover songs to the mix from James Brown,
Led Zeppelin, Otis Redding, AC/DC and others to fill a 45-minute set under the moniker, The Shakes. Later on the band added
Alabama to their name to stand out over other bands also called The Shakes. A four-song EP, Alabama Shakes, was introduced
in 2011. It garnered some media attention from NPR and also got them an invite to play at CMJ. Jon Pareles of The New York
Times took notice and sang the praises of Howard's voice, drawing a comparison to Janis Joplin.
The Alabama Shakes have managed to reign in some recognition over the years since their inception in 2009. In 2011, You
Ain't Alone, was used in a Zales jewelry TV commercial, and they also cornered a spot on MTV's list of 11 Artists to Watch
in 2012. In less than a year, the band went from anonymity to rockin' the stages of venues like the Troubadour, Music Box
Theater and Ryman Auditorium. If you love live musical concerts, you will want to check out the upcoming calendar for the
