“Find A Light pushes the envelope while providing that famous Blackberry Smoke autonomy, delivered with soulful vocals, haunting harmonies and kick-ass songs”
“Blackberry Smoke’s crunchy southern rock may be made for fuzzed-out electric guitars, but their songs sure do translate well to being played acoustically... this new recording of “Run Away from It All” seeing singer Charlie Starr and company huddled around microphones as they strum away from the comfort of some stools. The song takes on a more relaxed and wistful vibe, but the same simmering urgency of the original bubbles just beneath the surface.” - Rolling Stone
Find A Light named in Classic Rock’s “Best Albums of 2018” and NPR’s “Favorite Albums of 2018”.
American rock band Blackberry Smoke - Made up of Charlie Starr (vocals, guitar), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums) and Brandon Still (keyboards) - has become known for a singular sound indebted to classic rock, blues, country and folk. Since their debut in 2004, the Atlanta-based band has independently released six full-length albums and toured relentlessly, building a strong and loyal community of fans. The band has also had unparalleled success with sales of each of their last albums. In 2015 they released Holding All the Roses, which was the first independently-released record to hit #1 on the Billboard Country album charts in modern history. Like An Arrow followed in 2016, again putting them at #1. 2018 saw the band outsell all other releases with their self-produced Find A Light plus the acoustic accompaniment, The Southern Ground Sessions. Most recently, in 2019 Blackberry Smoke released Homecoming: Live in Atlanta, a recorded performance from their annual show in the band's home town. It also debuted at #1 on Billboard's Americana/Folk sales charts. This became the 4th consecutive album for Blackberry Smoke to be atop the charts. In addition to their success domestically, the band has also had #1 Rock, #1 Independent, and #1 U.K. Americana album chart releases in the United Kingdom and Europe.
