From  2012 Midpoint Music Fest Program.

Kelly Thomas has been the first lady of Cincinnati Country for the better part of a decade; founder of the charitable Rivertown Music Club and member of an impossible number of bands and projects, including Second Sister, the Tammy WhyNots, the Hayseed Tabernacle Choir, her solo work and her duo with 500 Miles to Memphis’ Ryan Malott. But perhaps her purest Country pursuit is her work with the Fabulous Pickups, which has been honky tonking up area joints since 2005, and which only hit the studio for the first time last year to create Fly, the Pickups’ debut recording and, amazingly, the first time Thomas has done a full album of her own songs (okay, “Beast of Burden” wasn’t hers, but she totally owned it). Not surprisingly, Thomas and the Pickups reeled in a CEA nomination for Best Country Artist, but then the first lady of Cincinnati Country should get used to being recognized as the best. Dig: Rosanne Cash and Tammy Wynette lag cue balls for the privilege of kicking Garth Brooks’ ass. (BB)





Hey Y'all,
  I have a few acoustic gigs over the summer! Calendar  I would love to see your smiling faces.  After August 16th I will be taking an indefinite break from playing out.  I am finishing up my Master's Degree at Xavier in Special Education and it looks to be a very demanding final year.  I'll be focusing on some other things as well like; hiking, yoga, my family and friends.  When I get inspired to do something new, musically, I'll be back.  Thank you so much for the years of support!
