Birthed from a series of casual Southern Alabama songwriter-in-the-round jam sessions, Almost Willie Sugarcapps is an organic outgrowth of the chemistry between three distinct musicians, Will Kimbrough, Grayson Capps and Corkey Hughes (the almost is because Sugarcane Jane will not be joining the band on this leg of the tour). Individually, these musicians have written, recorded, and toured throughout the U.S., with the likes of Jimmy Buffett, Emmylou Harris, Neil Young, Kate Campbell, Dwight Yoakam, and Steve Winwood, to name a few. The collaboration of such songwriting expertise inspired a repertoire of material that became their 2013 self-titled debut album, which was awarded Americana Album Of The Year by the Independent Music Association. Willie Sugarcapps went on to build a solid following, and performed on such lauded programs as Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour, NPRs Mountain Stage and Music City Roots.
Way down in lower Alabama, almost every weekend for the past two years, folks have been coming together for a music gathering called The Frog Pond at Blue Moon Farm. One part house concert, one part Levon Helms Midnight Ramble, the affair has hosted some of the countrys finest songwriters, pickers, bluesman and troubadours. It was here that frequent encounters between reoccurring artists Grayson Capps, Will Kimbrough, Corky Hughes and the duo Sugarcane Jane led to the birth of a band, the aptly named Willie Sugarcapps.
At first it was simply songwriter-in-the-round and jam session-styled collaborations, but it quickly grew to become something more. There was chemistry between the musicians that inspired a repertoire of songs demanding to be documented. They recruited Capps longtime partner and Grammy Award-winning producer/engineer Trina Shoemaker to record them, which resulted in the self-titled, debut album, Willie Sugarcapps. The collection presents ten impeccably crafted songs imbued by relaxed performances, angelic harmonies and country Zen sentiment. Band members often take turns singing lead as they switch up between fiddle, banjo, mandolin, lap steel, bass and even ukulele.
