Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Josephine Johnson - Double High Five
Singer-songwriter Josephine Johnson has produced her EP “Double High Five” during the pandemic year of 2020. She is a full-time musician only since 2018 but has released three albums so far. This EP is her newest release.
The six songs on “Double High Five” are mostly slow ones, dominated by Johnson’s sweet voice and tenderly arrangements. The title track, not even two minutes long, features an enjoyable pop styled melody. “Sister Rosetta Goes Before Us” is a cover of the Sam Phillips song (no, not THE Sam Phillips of Sun Records fame) and has also been recorded by Robert Plant and Allison Krauss. The highlight on the record, however, is “Feather Song,” a mid-paced country rock number.
