Release Notes:
For singer-songwriters like Stephen Simmons and Thad Cockrell, a Southern
evangelical Christian upbringing doesn’t necessitate sticking to a straight and
narrow musical path. Over the course of several recordings each, they’ve brought
a little imagination to the traditions they’ve inherited. This time Simmons’
guilt-laden souls aren’t wrestling with heaven and hell so much as romance, and
Cockrell has released the spiritual uplift that’s been bubbling beneath the
surface all along.

Not that the two sound alike or even espouse the same beliefs, but they both
make country-influenced music and have church-going in their blood—Simmons grew
up in the Church of Christ denomination, and Cockrell is the son of a Southern
Baptist minister. And both just released new recordings that explore new
spiritual directions.

God and the devil loom large on Simmons’ first two proper releases. A desperate
dualism haunts Last Call, and most of the characters in the 16 songs poison
their relationships with dirty hands and guilty consciences. Follow-up Drink
Ring Jesus bores beneath the surface in duels between good and evil to
compelling and insightful results—there’s even a song written from the devil’s
perspective on reeling in a soul on “Devil’s Work Is Never Done.” On both
albums, Simmons injects the urgency of the pulpit, mined from his experience
growing up in Woodbury, Tenn., into storylines of down-and-out folks.

“Half of the service was [the preacher] sweating and spitting out fire and
brimstone,” Simmons says. “It would get so hard that people [were] moved to get
up and go down front, and that meant everybody was going to be late for lunch,
because somebody hadn’t been true and they would tell what they’d done. Maybe
there’s something cathartic about going [to the altar]. Maybe everybody else is
like, ‘OK, I feel much better now. We got that out of the way—let’s go eat.’ ”

He got so used to that sort of fervency that he expected it most everywhere. “I
remember moving and going to a really big church somewhere on West End and
feeling kind of ripped off because nobody chewed me out,” he says.

Simmons’ latest, Something In Between, isn’t about spiritual wrestling so much
as sorting through the rubble of relationships. It’s as if, for the moment, he’s
purged the thoughts of hellfire from his system.

“You write a lot more songs about relationships—or most people do—than you do
about demons and stuff like that,” he says. “For a long time, it was tied really
closely to those themes. I don’t know if that’s just that phase I was going
through. Anybody that absorbs all that stuff—I think you have to work it out

But not surprisingly, Simmons’ relationship songs have a soul-searching element
too. “I think sometimes it’s the same theme of guilt and learning how to forgive
yourself when you haven’t lived up,” he says. Take “Go Easy On Me,” a
straight-ahead heartland rock song that beseeches whomever might be listening to
“Go easy ’cause I’m trying / Can’t make up for the last time / Couldn’t fix it
if I tried.”

It may seem like Simmons has followed a direct route away from spiritual
preoccupations, but the timeline’s not that simple. Never intending the
demo-like Drink Ring Jesus to be a full-fledged album, Simmons ended up slipping
it in between Last Call and the then-in-progress Something In Between. “I
remember thinking, ‘Wow, I just went even one more step off that cliff on the
religion thing with [Drink Ring Jesus], so when I do get this [new] one out it’s
going to really seem like I completely swung back around,” he says.

Even across different subject matter, Simmons’ songwriting has a ragged realism
and human empathy from album to album. A lot of the scenes unfold in bars or
bedrooms. His voice has a rubbed-raw quality and his melodies scrape the earth.

“Even on the stuff that deals with spirituality—I definitely feel more
comfortable with the word ‘spirituality’ than ‘religion’—there’s not anything
that’s even slightly judgmental, because that’s what I kind of cringe [at] about
mainstream religion—the judgmental aspect—having felt guilty and been made to
feel guilty for a long time,” Simmons says. “But I’m a part of that too—you have
to want to be made to feel guilty.”

“Obviously [songs] still come out like that,” he says. “It’s not like you
completely move away from it.”
