As gritty, soulful and righteous as Funkytown itself, Fort Worth’s Sam the Lion is back with a passel of cool new songs, a two-guitar attack and a new album in the works. Fronted by songwriters Chris Allen Curtis and Ed Rogers, the group dishes tasty arrangements of original tunes with ramshackle energy. Their songs defy genre and run the gamut from alt-country twang to soulful funk, from soaring ballads to gutsy rock and roll. The band is rooted by the powerhouse rhythm section of longtime collaborators Matthew Williams and Rodger Harrison, a two-headed monster of cadence, funk and meter.
