The Civil Wars are getting plenty of play time on my iPod and office computer. The band has only been around for a year and is the result of a collaboration between two great, young songwriters. Joy Williams lends her versatile vocals and songwriting talents to John Paul White’s folk guitar and vocal sound and the result is one of Nashville’s fastest rising duos.

The Civil Wars have already been featured on Grey’s Anatomy, are opening for Switchfoot this week and recently did a joint concert with rising Blue Note artist Kristina Train.

If you enjoy William Fitzsimmons or Iron & Wine then The Civil Wars may just help you get your fix of new, vintage tunes. Check out their single Poison & Wine below or visit to download their live album for free.
