Alabama native Drayton Farley has as honest a voice as you’re likely to hear in this burgeoning scene of country, folk, roots, and Americana music we’re all wrapped up in. With songs and lyrics pulled from real life experience, there’s a grounded feeling to his stories, a confessional quality that rings true to those who know. His voice fills the room like cigarette smoke, curling into every corner of you, with a fine grit rasp that smooths out every rough edge. It lingers hours, days, after you’ve left the bar – turns of phrase that tumble around your mind, bittersweet and familiar. He sings as deeply about the love he holds as the love he’s lost and there’s something so broken-in and comfortable about that Southern inflection that every song feels like coming home. Sharing stages with musicians on the rise such as Zach Bryan, Arlo McKinley and Mike and the Moonpies, Drayton has quickly gained a loyal fan base.

Kainen Kellum’s debut album, “A Fool’s Pipedream” is a satisfying journey through the early years of life. His lyrics are blended with hidden whispers of childhood memories and the complexities of grown-up reality. Kainen has an undeniable gift to bring music to life through storytelling that’s wrapped in wistfulness, mystery, and his perspective on age-old tales of murder and regret. Kellum’s smooth, warm vocal tones are reminiscent of the echoes of James Taylor, while his calm baritone depth hints towards the likeness of Johnny Cash and Sturgill Simpson. From the unannounced simplicity of blue raspberry suckers to the transitional timing of life & love in the south, this Central Alabama singer-songwriter is certain to fill your mind with harmonious reflections that will leave you wanting this nostalgic sound on repeat.
