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…)
Best known as the singer/songwriter/guitarist of Cinderella, TOM KEIFER once sang, “You’re only going once around the ride.” He’s proving that theory wrong with the highly anticipated release of THE WAY LIFE GOES – DELUXE EDITION, an expanded compilation of his critically acclaimed solo debut album, THE WAY LIFE GOES, chock full of bonus content and special artwork.
KEIFER and his bandmates (#keiferband: Tony Higbee/guitars and vocals, Billy Mercer/bass and vocals, Savannah Keifer/vocals, percussion and piano, Kendra Chantelle/vocals and percussion, now along with new band members Jarred Pope/drums, Kory Myers/keyboards and vocals) have been touring in support of THE WAY LIFE GOES ever since its release and they’re still not showing any signs of stopping.
The trek lands in Lexington, KY on Friday, October 6 at the Manchester Music Hall. You can pick up tickets here.
As an added bonus, Kentucky’s Kiss Kiss Bang has been added as an opener. Get there early and catch their set.
We will be there and we hope to see you there!
