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,
  Looks like I've got a new band!  I'm so excited to share, "Wilder", with you!  I've been writing with Randy Steffen (formerly of Sleepin' Dogs) and we've already hammered  out 9 songs!  Wilder will be different than anything I've done yet!  We're going for a gritty, organic sound that centers around three part harmonies and honest, working man's songwriting.  Randy and I are joined by Zac Rowe (formerly of The Pickups, Sleepin' Dogs, currently plays with Arlo McKinley & The Lonesome Sound) and we'll have two drummers sharing that spot.  We need the best!  Kevin Hogle is on board and we're flirting with one other local great!  Drums will be scaled back, not a full kit and will be more about texture than big sound!  We have two shows on the books right now, both thanks to the fine folks at Southgate House Revival!  November 24th we will be opening for Kate Voegle and December 3rd for Lera Lynn!  We'll be updating with homemade videos and demos, until we can get in with Elton Clifton to record an EP (hopefully Dec/Jan).

YeeHaw!!
