“Shimmering country beauty…the music seems to glow!” (No Depression)
Dead right, honest songwriting delivered in a hauntingly beautiful yet gritty, neo-traditional Americana wrapper!
Doug and Telisha, now residing in the new Bohemian Mecca of East Nashville, write songs about a place where old time religion, superstition, run down bars, gravel parking lots and boarded up factories all mingle together.
“Wild Ponies swing emotional wrecking balls with great delicacy!” (M Music & Musicians Magazine)
“Ghost of the Knoxville Girl”, received wide critical acclaim, and spent 15 weeks in the Americana Music Association Top 40 Radio Chart, landing a spot as one of the top 100 Americana Albums of 2010. The past few years have been filled with hundreds of shows and thousands of miles for Doug and Telisha. They’ve traveled from Florida to Oregon and Michigan to Texas, they’ve played with some of their most beloved heroes – Lucinda Williams, Darrell Scott, Charlie Louvin, and Joe Ely – and been on several of the nations most revered stages – Anderson Fair, The Birchmere, The Carolina Theater, Godrey Daniels, Madison Square Park and Floydfest. Quick wit and fearless delivery make every show different and personal.
They co-host the weekly songwriting group called the East Nashville Song Salon, they host a weekly radio show on East Nashville Radio called Whiskey Wednesdays, and if you’re wandering around on the east side of the Cumberland you can expect to see, hear or hang with them at The Family Wash and other local spots. That is, if they’re not on the road – they still manage to average over 100 dates a year, bringing a burning energy to every show they play. They mean it. They live it. Then they get on stage and rip the shit out of it.
“Every now and again you run across something that just knocks your socks off. This was one of those times… it all combines to obtain near perfection… Can anyone say, “oh hell yeah!”?!” (No Depression)
