Kelcy D. Wilburn (Kelcy Mae)
Kelcy Mae has a really nice rootsy sound, and a cool way with her own songs. The traditional "Moonshiner" gets a powerful reading that she really nails. "Down to the river" is a dreamy and suitably country tinged song with a gorgeous lead vocal. "Take your time" sees her in a relaxed mood, her lovely vocals set to a good tune. It's a wonderful album.

Kelcy Mae's new album is poppier than her previous effort, but it has the same rootsy sound, and some great songs. "Bright eyes" is a yearning song with a strong chorus that really works. "Favor" is a very poppy song that Mae brings her unique flavor to. "My Love" is a catchy, yet still grounded song with some nice touches to it. "King of Tennessee" is dreamy and has a great sound, just like all of her songs do. It feels lived-in in a good way. She's made another fine album. (firstname.lastname@example.org)
