Alabama native Drayton Farley has honest a voice as you’re likely to hear in the country, folk, roots, and Americana music we’re all wrapped up in.
With songs and lyrics pulled from real life experience, there’s a grounded feeling to his stories, a confessional quality that rings true to those who know. His voice fills the room like cigarette smoke, curling into every corner of you, with a fine grit rasp that smooths out every rough edge. He sings as deeply about the love he holds as the love he’s lost, and there’s something so broken-in and comfortable about Southern inflection that every song feels like coming home.
The Lowest Pair
Kendl Winter and Palmer T. Lee are two kindred spirits who first met on the banks of the Mississippi while touring the Midwest festival circuit.
Winter released three solo records before meeting Lee in 2013. Lee had built his first banjo when he was 19 and began cutting his teeth fronting Minneapolis string bands before convincing Winter they should form a banjo duo. Now, as The Lowest Pair, they have recorded and released five albums together, relentlessly toured North America and ventured to the UK twice. Winter and Lee are two sides of the same coin whose experiences define and support each other. And The Lowest Pair harness and harmonizes that wisdom in The Perfect Plan as a way of distilling the magic of their partnership into a singular tangible experience that speaks to audiences across genres and through various artistic avenues.
