In just a couple of days, Southern California duo PawnShop Kings will bring their live sound to Guitar Town in honor of the act's brand-new release.

Signed to the the Sony Music/Essential Records roster, the Pawn Shop Kings' just-released offering is a self-titled EP of five tracks; namely, "Gonna Let You, "Fall Apart," "Love Like Jesus," "When You’re Holding" and "Make Me Whole."

But perhaps best of all for local music lovers, the duo, which comprises brothers Scott and Joel Owen, will celebrate the EP's unveiling with a 5:30 p.m. show this Thursday, Feb. 27, at Nashville’s Music City Tippler, 1922 Adelicia St.

Per the siblings' PR camp, their new disc "is packed with the southern, soulful and Americana sounds that have influenced them." Moreover, the EP also boasts the creative handiwork of Phil Madeira (The Civil Wars, Emmylou Harris) and Lynn Nichols (MuteMath, Mat Kearney) at the producing helm, both of whom are well-respect industry vets.

Songwriters for Sony ATV Publishing, both Scott and Joel contributed to the tunesmithing of their current project, penning tracks about "love, life, God, pain (and) hope. ..."

Regarding their sound, "Our music, relationships, desires and the way we see the world and treat people all centers around the learning done in this environment,” Scott shared in a Feb. 25 correspondence with Examiner.

“The further along we go, the more apparent the impact becomes of those times and experiences in everyday life," he added. "Our writing and music is the crossing of these worlds, the West Coast and the American South, one no less vital than the other.”

At this writing, the PawnShop Kings are offering a free download of two self-penned songs -- “Make Me Whole,” which was characterized by one outlet as “the rock-n-roll center of this album,” and “Love Like Jesus.” To download the songs, please access
