Bach Bawk Bagawk

What happens when several experienced, chicken-loving musicians from other known bands set down the instruments that they normally play, and explore new ideas in a different realm on their completely wrong respective instruments? Absolute ecstasy. Bach Bawk Bagawk plays free range music; that is, music with no boundaries, from the eyes and mind of a chicken. There is no practicing, there is no writing; it is completely improvisational. No song is ever played twice. They will go from redneck raw to orchestral genius in 2.73 seconds for her pleasure....and yours, of course.

End of Tour Party

Join us for one heckuva end of tour party for Ben Sollee! The Kentucky Coffeetree Cafe sponsored his Ditch the Van tour, and it's coming to a close on October 8. While we're sad to see the end, it's been a very exciting ride!

For a stalwart young artist who creates different means to an end, Ben Sollee has enjoyed a whirlwind year replete with remarkable success and warm, exciting music to match.

Sollee hails from Kentucky, yet sounds nothing like the colloquial music one traditionally associates with the state (or anywhere else for that matter). He eschews traditional singer-songwriter and folk boundaries, choosing a cello rather than a guitar as his divining rod, and utilizing unique plucking and percussive bow techniques juxtaposed against his blue-eyed soul meets Antony Hegarty vocal leanings. Ben enjoys collaborating with musicians as disparate as Otis Taylor and Bela Fleck, touring with indie rock royalty, and covering Sam Cooke as an homage to blues. When he ventures out of Louisville, sometimes he'll just strap this cello to his back and ride his bike rather than enjoy the comforts of a van or bus, as he did on his southern trek in the summer of 2009 -- playing intimate shows in every town he hits between his larger headlining performances. Yes, Ben's always done things a bit differently.

Blue Mother Tupelo

$10

Some artists just cannot be kept down - they are irrepressible. Their years of traveling the roads of the South, playing anywhere they can and writing and performing some of the best tunes that two people can possibly put together eventually will show even the best critics and record labels that they are truly a force to be reckoned with. Self-produced ... they have made one of the finest CDs I have heard this year. They are true indie singer-songwriters that have put forth a thing of beauty.
- Gary W. Miller, BLUESSOURCE.COM

Blue Mother Tupelo is quite possibly the best husband and wife duo you've never heard of.

"Amy Speace is the perfect torchbearer for the unconscious cool of true Americana" - The Houston Press

“I kind of spilled blood all over this project,” Amy Speace says of her new album The Killer In Me, which marks a quantum creative leap from the artist’s 2006 breakthrough effort Songs For Bright Street. While that release won her widespread critical acclaim and a loyal international fan base, The Killer In Me finds the New York-based singer/songwriter forging into deeper, darker lyrical and musical terrain, borne largely out of relationships gone wrong, then right and wrong again. “This is the record that I needed to make,” Speace states. “In many ways, it was the hardest thing I’ve ever done. And in some ways, it was the easiest. Writing the songs was emotionally difficult, deep and intense–it was kind of an exorcism. But in the end, the songs flowed pretty quickly. You write the things that you’re afraid to say out loud.”
