Kentucky native Kelvin Damrell, the newest and youngest member of the world renowned Bluegrass band, The Steeldrivers, stopped by recently to visit with Bluegrass Breakout. He talked to us about what it was like to join such a well-established band and the hard work he's investing in his musicianship and vocals to make the most of the opportunity. Kelvin also talked about his personal song-writing, trying to support and help his wife parent while on the road with the band and he gave us some behind the music scene stories that are sure to make you smile! Kelvin rocked our studio with his solo version of some of our favorite Steeldrivers' songs. Check out the podcast below and be sure to grab a copy of The Steeldrivers latest project: Bad For You
We had a wonderful time in studio with Sasha Colette of Olive Hill, Kentucky. She is an enormously talented singer, musician and songwriter.
We were first introduced to Sasha at the Gateway Regional Arts Center last year during their Woodsongs Coffee House Hour and had been playing her songs ever since. It was quite an honor to talk with Sasha about her roots, her journey and growth while making music and starting a family and about her insights on music. She was kind enough to share even more of her great original tunes with us, so if you missed the interview and studio session when it aired live, here it is in its entirety.
