Ever More Nest
Stanleys Pub, 323 Stanley Ave, Cincinnati, OH
Ever More Nest pairs Kelcy Mae’s signature poetic lyricism with a musical style that can set you simultaneously on a rural dirt road and a gritty, big-city street. The project’s debut album, The Place That You Call Home, was just nominated for Best Alt-Country Album in the 2019 Independent Music Awards. It centers on the idea of place, from the fallen trees of “North Mississippi” to the infinite stars of “Major Tom.” The New Orleans-based band is currently touring the US with notable stops at the Kennedy Center Millennium Stage in DC and the Emerging Artists Series Stage at Summerfest in Milwaukee.
Produced by 2018 Grammy-nominated producer Neilson Hubbard (Mary Gauthier), the album accentuates the best of Kelcy’s emotive, authentic voice, delicate yet driving guitar work, and honest, observational songwriting that poses the universal question: “Just where do I belong?” According to Folk Radio UK, “The answer is clearly in any discerning Americana CD collection.”
