Mary Beth Zamer and Mike T. Lewis have weirdly cool résumés. She sang backing vocals for the late Eva Cassidy’s Method Actor, while he had a No.1 Pop hit in South Korea in the late ’90s and plays upright bass for Jimmie Dale Gilmore on the road. As Twangtown Paramours, Zamer and Lewis combine to create an elegantly soulful urban Americana that folds in just the right amounts of Pop, Country, Gospel, Folk and Bluegrass and remembers that music is about feeling and not production.
