From Nashville, TN comes the latest release from one of the best roots/rock duos, The Loose Hinges. Their new album, "Nothing's Permanent" was released on August 21st and features the exceptional songwriting of Eliot Houser and Kris McCarthy. The new twelve song release begins with the jazzy feel of "Don't Give Up On Me" as McCarthy's vocals instantly find their way into your heart. They add a little country twang to "The Girl Who Loved To Fall In Love," and continue with the Americana feel of "Lay It On Me." The pinnacle of the album is the experimental sound of "Why Waste It" as they give off a refreshing sounding vibe to expand your mind to. They return to with the country twang of "Trailer Trash," before McCarthy delivers her Sheryl Crow-like vocals of "Nothing's Permanent." The album closes with the laid-back, acoustic folk/rock of "All Of This & Nothing More." To find out more about The Loose Hinges and their latest release "Nothing's Permanent," pleas visit
