Laura and the Killed Men to play The Yukon Bar

LauraAndTheKilledMenLaura and the Killed Men

“Their just-released album, Everchanging Trail, is pure country and western, with an emphasis on “western.” And they sound pretty good, too.” –No Depression

It’s the vocals that set this album apart from straightforward Americana music.  The quartet blends precise choral voices in complex arrangements that lend craft to their full and freewheeling sound.”  –Zocalo Magazine

The Local Show:

July 29 and 30: The Yukon Bar, 201 4th Avenue, Seward

FREE, 9pm

Laura and the Killed Men steep their songs in the lore of the American West, refracting its triumphs and tragedies through an intimate lens. Laura Kepner-Adney, the lead singer and guitarist in the Tucson-based band, shades her spellbinding voice with echoes of country and Appalachia. Her expansive songwriting, honed from seven years in the critically acclaimed ensemble Silver Thread Trio, highlights her connection to Arizona’s unforgiving environment. For Laura and the Killed Men’s first LP,Everchanging Trail, Kepner-Adney, in collaboration with songwriting partner and lead guitarist Sam Golden, has developed a style that weaves together all the diverse and disparate elements of what has defined country music throughout the 20th and 21st centuries and forges something timelessly familiar yet wholly unique. Bob Hanshaw and Björgvin Benediktsson, sharing bass duties, and Seth Vietti, drums, supply soaring vocal harmonies and a tightly refined backbeat.
