With his dreamy acoustic picking and a voice that runs molasses-thick, old-soul Nicholas Jamerson writes earnest songs that are filled with heart. His songs spin tales of southern gothic drama woven with an intricate emotional framework, underscored with delicate Americana instrumentation and country-folk melodies. Raised in Prestonburg, Ky., the singer-songwriter began his career as half of the duo Sundy Best. Since announcing the band’s split in March 2018, Jamerson has embarked on a solo career that remains true to Sundy Best’s country sound and showcases both his remarkable vocal and instrumental skill and his outstanding abilities as a songwriter.
As part of Sundy Best, Jamerson performed at iconic venues like the Grand Ole Opry and the Rymann Auditorium in Nashville, and their 2014 album Bring Up the Sun reached #11 on the Billboard Top Country Albums Chart. Jamerson’s debut solo album NJ, recently released this past January, received glowing reviews from outlets like Rolling Stone and Still: The Journal.
A native of the rolling hills and coal mining communities of rural western Kentucky, Grayson Jenkins is a singer-songwriter who now calls Lexington, KY his home. John Prine, Kris Kristofferson, Eagles, Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell, and many others have influenced his unique brand of Kentucky country music.
His lyrics are inspired by the words of Mark Twain, who always said, “Write what you know.” In keeping with this motto, Grayson’s songs pay homage to the things most important to him—family, friends, and a life without regrets.
His latest studio album, Cityscapes & Countrysides, was released in April 2017 and has garnered attention from radio and press in the region.
