We’re cracking open this six pack with Monkeys Eyebrow, Kentucky’s own Kelsey Waldon. If you aren’t familiar with Kelsey, shame on you!! Just kidding, Kelsey has paid her dues touring relentlessly and honing her craft and her career is certainly on the rise.
Her craft of songwriting caught the ear of none other than John Prine. Mr. Prine signed Kelsey to his label, Oh Boy Records and on October 4th, she drops her new album ‘White Noise / White Lines.” Kelsey holds the distinction of being the first artist signing at Oh Boy Records in over 15 years.
If you want to hear a preview of her album, you can catch her set at the Railbird Festival this weekend. She’s playing The Burl Stage from 2:00-2:45 on Sunday. (more…)
We’re starting a new series here at Capture Kentucky that will hopefully help introduce you to new artists, but to also allow you to get to know them a little better. It’s a series we’re gonna call Six Pack. Sure it’s an interview with six questions, but that’s not why we chose the name. Nope! We chose the name because of the Kenny Rogers classic movie by the same name.
Today we bring to you a band that calls Campbellsville, Kentucky home. The band is called No Deceit and we feel that you’re gonna enjoy these folks. Led by the powerful vocals of Allison Stafford, No Deceit is a country band, but that’s too simple of a description. No Deceit are a smorgasbord of talent and styles that ultimately ends up having the side effects of a damn good time while listening. So if you’ve got a fever, the only prescription is more No Deceit!!
CK: Kentuckians have a very low tolerance for bull crap. The name of your band is No Deceit. Give us some insight about the process and journey that landed on ‘No Deceit.’
Allison: Very true! Kentuckians appreciate authenticity and that’s what we try to bring to the stage. We don’t try to fit in a specific genre, we are who we are, and we aren’t sorry about that. I think “No Deceit” has grown to represent us as a band. We’re raw, authentic, and real. But the band name was actually born from the start of the band. We created the band as a one-time project form a hometown talent show, our guitar player at the time, came up with the name that came from a bible verse. He came across the phrase, thought it would be a cool band name and we went with it. Not knowing at the time that one day, it would come to define us as a band. And yes, we won the talent show! Hahaha (more…)
