Modern-day country outlaw Tyler Childers’ third LP, 2019’s Country Squire – produced, like its predecessor Purgatory, by Sturgill Simpson – topped the Billboard Country Chart, scoring features in both Rolling Stone and GQ. (This after Purgatory saw him championed by John Prine and Willie Nelson, and named Best Emerging Artist at 2018’s Americana Awards.) Still just 28, the Kentucky strip-miner’s son unites raw passion and hardscrabble authenticity with deep Appalachian roots.
Self-styled as “an antidote to the surplus of young beardy middle-class men singing winsomely about love”, kick-ass trio - and fellow Kentuckians - The Local Honeys feature stunning twin lead vocals with banjo, guitars and fiddle, plus equal parts sass and sweetness.
