Getting To Know Louisville’s Next Attempt. They Are Bringing Punk Back In A Big Way!

I was shoveling my face with one of Frank’s Deli ‘s behemoth turkey sandwiches, trying to figure out how I was going to fill a two-hour gap between classes when I decided to send a message to an artist friend of mine, see what was going on in the local art scene. Between shows, she said she was working on album art for a local Pop Punk Group. My interest was piqued, so I inquired further.

The group was called Next Attempt and they have been logging the hours on the local scene, produced a quality EP and have something of a following in Louisville. I typed in their name on iTunes to sample their music and after listening to their EP, Just Between Us, and after merely killing time in a deli parking lot at three-thirty in the afternoon, I found the next band I wanted to interview for Capture Kentucky. There was youthful energy to their music, a coming of age vibe, as it were. The cover to the EP was of two students passing something in class while the teacher’s back was turned. (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…)

Charlie Daniels, The Kentucky Headhunters and Kaleb Lee Delight In Pikeville!

One of the things Jonathan told me he was looking for when I joined Capture Kentucky several years ago, was that if it was cool and happened in Kentucky or had a Kentucky connection he was interested. Let me ask you this and you tell me if this qualifies. I think I know the answer before I ask but here goes, does The Kentucky Headhunters playing on stage in the mountains of eastern Kentucky qualify as cool? Maybe an emerging artist in Kaleb Lee and former contestant on The Voice born in western Kentucky playing on that same stage, is that cool enough? Or to top Kaleb and The Headhunters, both were opening for the legendary Charlie Daniels and his band at the Appalachian Wireless Arena in Pikeville Kentucky. I think all that qualifies as cool, no, not just cool, that qualifies as kickass! (more…)

TOOL Brought Their ‘Fear Inoculum’ Tour To Cincinnati

TOOL. A simple name for a very complex band. A band that needs no introduction to any fan of rock, metal or prog, and especially to any musicians out there. The band recently made a stop in Cincinnati and we were lucky enough to be there to review the show. So let’s get started.

In a recent interview, members of TOOL considered genre labels and how they apply to TOOL’s music. Feeling more kinship with Pink Floyd than Whitesnake, Danny Carey mentioned that he felt like TOOL wasn’t really a metal band in his mind. Discourse about genre labels will always continue, regardless of how futile, but TOOL is a group that, since its inception almost 30 years ago, has been in a league completely on their own. Blending elements of grunge, psychedelia, metal, and prog, TOOL has consistently shattered expectations, while still maintaining an easily identifiable and timeless style and sound, creating what is arguably one of the best complete discographies in modern hard rock/metal.

This tour is following one of the most anticipated (more…)

On Saturday night, Kentucky’s current King of Country Music returned to his home state and invaded the KFC YUM! Center with Brothers Osborne and Kendell Marvel.

You may recognize the name Kendell Marvel, as we had the opportunity to interview Kendell here at Capture Kentucky. (You can read that here)

Tyler Booth Launches His Nashville Career With Debut Single, “Long Comes A Girl”

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…)
