Lexington’s Sour Cream is a band that has held my attention since I first read about them. I’m sure you’re curious where I first heard of them, so follow along for the next couple of paragraphs, you’ll appreciate this one or at least be intrigued by it.
I have known several of the gentlemen in The Kentucky Headhunters for years. Guitarist Greg Martin is truly one of the most genuine, loving and positive individuals that I’ve ever had the pleasure to have met. I respect Greg on many levels, so trusting him when it comes to music, is an absolute no-brainer. (more…)
The deeper we dig into the musical fabric that has created the wonderful sounds and support we now enjoy in our Commonwealth, one name has continued to pop-up, and that name is Don Rogers.
I first found Don about 18 months ago, but as life tends to keep us busy, Summer came along and all the coverage and/or the creation of festivals we try and provide, my research got pushed to the back burner.
Johnny Conqueroo are no strangers to Capture Kentucky. We’ve had the unique opportunity to watch these young men grow into a dynamic trio that can hold their own on any stage. We weren’t the only folks watching them grow. Turns out that Soul Step Records had their eyes and ears on Johnny Conqueroo.
Soul Step Records signed a deal with the band to release a 7″ vinyl single, to pair with their EP titled ‘Taking It Easy’. That EP and vinyl both drop on Friday, December 6th and we were given early access to share our opinion and help spread the word.
Johnny Conqueroo has never been (more…)
Grayson Jenkins needs no introduction around here, but since we have a pretty decent amount of new folks, I’ll give ya the cliff notes version.
Grayson is yet another Kentuckian that deserves your attention. He’s been honing his skills for several years and he’s grown exponentially better as a vocalist over the last couple of years. (more…)
Black Stone Cherry are a band that I hold dearly next to my heart. I’ve seen these young men perform more than any other artists out there.
Having said that, there’s got to be a good reason, right? Well there definitely is. These four young men have pumped out some of the beqst music around for the last 13 years. They know who they are, but they also know (more…)
Kentucky Music is absolutely on fire! We’ve shared a ton of new music over the last couple of weeks and I’ve got ya one more to check out.
Brad Hardin has quickly became a mainstay at the one and only Austin City Saloon. The proving grounds of many artists as they’ve grown into their abilities. Folks Like Greg Austin, John Michael Montgomery, Montgomery Gentry, George Molton, Sturgill Simpson and more recently Dillon Carmichael and Tyler Booth, have all graced the corner stage at Austin City Saloon.
I have had the good fortune of being involved with several artists over my lifetime. Many have “made it”, many more have not. None have matured faster or made greater strides than Wolfe County Kentucky’s Tyler Booth.
I met Tyler when he was around 10 years old. I knew his Dad, Jason Booth, as we both worked with bands and venues promoting our friends and in J’s case, family. (more…)
If you’re a reader of this site, you’re likely aware of Mr. Tyler Childers. Capture Kentucky began shortly before Childers debut ‘Purgatory’ hit the “Outer-Commonwealth”, so we’ve been fortunate to cover Tyler in many different settings, including his Grand Ole Opry debut.
Having said that, it is an incredible honor to be reviewing Childers latest release in ‘Country Squire.’
Western Kentucky has always been good to me. I’ve made many friends in that area over the years. Some of which are very dear to me. *cough* Chris Bratcher *cough* One fella that I really enjoyed and I made a point to keep up with, is Bowling Green’s Clayton Crowder.
I worked a bit with Bowling Green’s legendary Sixth Floor back in the day. Wade England was a member of Sixth Floor, playing bass or guitar when needed. So once they parted ways, Wade created a new band called Undead Anna. Undead Anna featured Clayton playing rhythm guitar and providing the vocals. I really enjoyed Crowder’s stage presence and vocals in Undead Anna. So I made sure to keep my eyes and ears peeled after Undead Anna ran its course.
Crowder then joined forces with his buddies in Kiss Kiss Bang as a guitarist and he handles most of the backing vocals there, as he is still active with Kiss Kiss Bang. But much like my buddy Cameron Jayne, Clayton deserves a bigger spotlight. His voice, his abilities as a songwriter, his melodies need to be heard. (more…)
