Born in the South and raised on a variety of American music, Royal Horses creates a sound that embodies the musical melting pot that is Mississippi, and serves it up with a modern sensibility. Armed with electric guitars and. Royal Horses can take you strolling softly down a country road, crashing through a briar patch, or soaring through the stratosphere on a rocketship of sound.
Ever More Nest
Ever More Nest is a new music project from New Orleans-based songwriter Kelcy Mae. Kelcy has adopted a full-fledged Americana style that has drawn comparisons to Gregory Alan Isakov, Gillian Welch, and Nanci Griffith. Kelcy’s oft-lauded poeticism remains a calling card of her songs.
Early James is a combination of roots, rock, the lonesomeness of the blues and tongue, and the cheek of classic country. James’ voice conjures a century’s worth of American barkers and crooners, from Alan Lomax field recordings to mid-century iconoclasts like Billy Holliday and Howlin Wolf to ghostly late-century interpreters like Fiona Apple and Tom Waits.
The Songwriters Showcase serves as a preview to the Frank Brown International Songwriters Festival. The night will kick-off with Rhonda Hart and will be followed by Ira Dean and Anthony Smith
