Kimmie Rhodes – Cowgirl Boudoir – March / April UK Tour Dates

Kimmie Rhodes - 'Cowgirl Boudoir' - cover (300dpi)

Labeling the sound she hoped to create ‘Cowgirl Boudoir’, Kimmie Rhodes embarked on a retro-cowgirl-hippie-chick musical experiment with fellow collaborators – quirky cool featured guest artist Johnny Goudie and producer Gabriel Rhodes – writing & singing songs that fuse traditional country sounds with influences from the 60s, 70s and 80s into a seamless blend.

Debut UK / Eire Tour dates announced by Cale Tyson

Nashville-based rising young traditional country troubadour Cale Tyson makes his first ever trip to the UK and Ireland in April to support the release of his debut album ‘Introducing Cale Tyson’ on Clubhouse Records.  Texan-born Tyson has been receiving amazing reviews for his EP, High On Lonesome, a glorious old-school country record fuelled by broken hearts, alcohol and melancholy. Tyson will be performing as a duo with guitarist Pete Lindberg and will be playing two shows at the Kilkenny Roots Festival in May alongside Calexico, Lee Baines III and The Barr Brothers.

Here’s Lonesome In Tennessee, a track from Cale’s excellent debut EP that’s out on Clubhouse Records now and highly recommended.

Cale Tyson – High on Lonesome EP + UK / Ireland Dates 2015

High On Lonesome is the debut mini-album / EP from Nashville based Texan Cale Tyson who offers up a septet of original songs delivered with classic country stylings, with more than a little nostalgia and plenty of weeping steel and tear-in-my-beer lyrics, the timeless combination also adds a twist with Long Gone Girl, a sort of post modern country number that could have easily have slotted into Sturgill Simpsons lauded release from earlier this year.

Lonesome In Tennessee

Recorded in Nashville with studio players including Kenny Vaughan (Marty Stuart) on guitars, Tyson Rogers (Don Williams) on keys and Mike Rinne on bass (Caitlin Rose and Andrew Combs) you can pick up the recording at Clubhouse Records.
