My thoughts… Fools For Rowan is one those great bands that I just don’t get how they didn’t make it to the majors! They should’ve been signed and their radio-ready alt-rock should’ve been blasting from radios all across the country! FFR hails from Nashville and a subtle influence of that city’s iconic country music scene is evident in their music, even though beautiful singer Erin Mullins is originally from South Dakota. Mullins (aka Erin Mullins-Sanderson) is currently a fit rocker chick! Check out her blog Fit Rocker Chick (here). She looks amazing but I hope she doesn’t let that beautiful voice stay unheard for too much longer!
