The Thorns - The Thorns
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

The Thorns - The ThornsWith shades of The Eagles and Crosby, Stills & Nash, the Thorns brings together three talented singer-songwriters—Matthew Sweet, Pete Droge and Shawn Mullins—in gorgeous harmony. Sweet was already thinking of putting together a Mamas & the Papas-style vocal harmony group when serendipity led to this supergroup trio. Produced by Brendan O’Brien, the debut album is so loaded with potential singles, from “Runaway Feeling” and “I Can’t Remember” to “I Set the World on Fire” and “Among the Living,” that success seems a foregone conclusion.
