As the title suggests, the debut album from The Kenneth Brian Band is an introduction to the New South, by way of a relentless attack of tracks- featuring masterful song-crafting, blistering guitar work, spot-on harmonies, and a take-no-prisoners-rhythm section- all tied together by Brian's honest voice and unapologetically strait-forward point of view. While dark times have seen the Southern farms and small businesses of old paved over and toppled by the ever-increasing growth of suburban sprawl, Welcome To Alabama shines like a beacon for those who fear that Southern Culture is all but lost, and moreover, proves that it isn't lost at all.
Produced by the legendary Johnny Sandlin (Allman Bros. Band), the album features guest performances by a who's who of Southern music-makers including David Hood (bass for Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, Aretha Franklin), Randall Bramblett (Traffic, Sea Level), Bonnie Bramlett, Jason Isbell, and more. With its first album, The Kenneth Brian Band has created a Southern Rock Tour De Force that, like it's namesake, is both progressive and steeped in tradition. Welcome To Alabama.
