Bands like JD McPherson need to exist. They need to exist because a proper rock 'n' roll band are so depressingly difficult to come across these days and when you find one, they inspire sheer joy. At least, this was our experience when we filmed this session. The reckless swagger and swing of a band that just loves playing music together shone from the foursome.

Of course the come from Heartland America, of course they record on analog equipment and of course they have slicked back hair. But there is no shred of pretense. It's just them. And they're incredible.

Fresh off the success of single Northside Gal, the guys performed a track from their debut album, Scandalous exclusively for The Amazing Sessions.
