    A Journey In Growth. Morgan Wade Was Anything But ‘Reckless’ At The Burl.

    There are two types of shows that I LIVE for as a journalist and photographer. The first is a hometown show. There’s absolutely nothing like the energy of seeing folks come home to a sea of appreciation. The second, and the category that this show falls in, is when an artist that I’ve previously witnessed on a small stage returns to that same fanfare of a hometown show. It’s a thing of beauty and it’s why I knew I had to cover this show. See, back in 2019, before the dreaded c-word, I witnessed a young lady on a small stage in the front yard of one of my favorite…

    Album Review: The Local Honeys Bring Kentucky To The World With Their Self-Titled Release On La Honda Records

    Have you ever heard a song or artist that you immediately knew where they’re from and what to expect? It’s not all that common, but when it happens, I often find there’s an unusually deep connection with that song or artist moving forward. It’s like they allow you to know who they are immediately. There’s no digging around, trying to figure them out. What you see, or in this case, what you hear, is exactly what you get. It’s those artists that I find incredibly refreshing, and endearing. The Local Honeys give you that immediate introduction. With their new self-titled release on La Honda Records, these two ladies have embodied…

    Album Review: Sydney Adams Reminds Us We’re All Human With Her New EP ‘A Lot Like You’

    It’s rare for a music “scene” or community to produce an artist that gains notoriety on a national or international level. With every passing day, I find Kentucky housing another artist ready to take the baton and run alongside those that have “made it.” Some would say that our Commonwealth possesses an uncommon wealth of talent. I’d be one of those folks, and if you’ll allow me, I’d like to shine a little light on a young lady that I believe in wholeheartedly. If you’re a reader here at Capture Kentucky, then Sydney Adams is not a new artist to you. If this is your first time here or hearing…

    Album Review: Larah Helayne Releases Her 2nd EP ‘Good Riddance’

    Kentucky is bountiful when it comes to singer-songwriters these days. It’s kinda embarrassing to be honest, but we’ll sure as heck enjoy the ride while we can. Today, I want to focus our little spotlight on one of the youngest, but brightest rising stars in Larah Helayne. Larah is an inspiration in many ways, and the future is a very bright one that I’ll be watching for a very long time. Photo By Erica Chambers  So allow me to introduce you to Larah for a bit. Larah hails from the home of ‘Court Days’ which is a festival that takes place every year in Mount Sterling, Kentucky. The Whirlin’ Sterlin’…

    The Local Honeys Release New Single “Better Than I Deserve”

    Lexington, KY – June 3, 2022 – Linda Jean Stokley and Montana Hobbs, better known as the beloved Kentuckian duo, The Local Honeys, have a gifted way with words—particularly the playful colloquialisms and regional idiosyncrasies from their home in the Bluegrass State—that simultaneously connects the past and present, old and new. They bind stories with warm vernacular that makes those in-the-know feel warm and welcome and those not, well, flat out curious to hear more. On Wednesday, DittyTV premiered The Local Honeys’ newest “Better Than I Deserve” from their upcoming self-titled album (out July 15th via La Honda Records), of which the title itself was an everyday motto of Hobbs’s…

    Rockers 3 Doors Down brought Kentucky’s Cameron Jayne To Rock The Funk Out Of The Barnyard

    Hey y’all! It’s been a minute since I’ve been able to catch a show and bring you in-depth coverage, so for my first article in months, I chose a show that features one of my favorite bands, in Black Stone Cherry, (well it would’ve been anyhow) and the fine folks in 3 Doors Down at The Barnyard in Sharpsburg, Kentucky. Unfortunately, COVID reared it’s ugly head and the fellas in Black Stone Cherry were forced to cancel several shows. Believe me when I say this, missing a show in their home state is just as heartbreaking to them, as it is to all of us. Their health is what matters…

    Larkin Poe Harmonized Their Hearts Out At The Mountain Arts Center In Prestonsburg With The Cold Stares As Support

    There’s an infinite number of variables that make for a good time, but on Sunday night, we found the ultimate prescription. We took two sisters and all their beautiful harmonies, tossed in a heavy dose of the Blues, sprinkled in songs from their entire career and mixed them all together in the best cauldron Kentucky has to offer in the Mountain Arts Center in Prestonsburg. Rebecca and Megan Lovell are a blues-oriented, Grammy-nominated duo known as Larkin Poe. Natives of Georgia, now based in Nashville, these young ladies made their way to Prestonsburg armed with an abundance of musical ammunition in reserve. Eager to travel and share their music with…
