Kacy and Clayton

From the Deep Dark Woods …

Kacy & Clayton are second cousins who hail from the Wood Mountain uplands of Southern Saskatchewan, Canada. Their 2015 New West Records debut Strange Country was met with critical acclaim by Q Magazine stating, “Linthicum’s acoustic playing and vocals dovetail perfectly with Anderson’s crystal voice like prime Richard and Linda Thompson.” They also stated, “You’d be forgiven for thinking it was a lost late-’60s Brit-Folk gem,” continuing with “A beautiful album that nudges a classic past into a brave future.” NPR Music also offered, “Ambient textures like cursive strings, washy steel guitar, glistening vibraphone and enveloping reverb frame Kacy & Clayton’s performances…one more way that these two ground their traditional inclinations in the here and now.”

Speaking to Rolling Stone about their new Jeff Tweedy-produced album The Siren’s Song”, Kacy offered “Jeff knows so much about recording, music and gear that it’s overwhelming, but we have a lot in common with him in regards to our tastes of production and albums from the Sixties and Seventies,” says Anderson. “It’s pretty inspirational to think that he wakes up every morning and works to advance the folk-country-rock medium constantly, considering he’s already released dozens of great albums. This was very motivating for us recording this album, seeing his dedication in motion.”
