Kelsey Waldon Releases New Record White Noise/White Lines

Monkey’s Eyebrow, KY, native Kelsey Waldon is proud to release White Noise/White Lines. Co-Produced by Waldon and Dan Knobler, her much-anticipated third album releases today via John Prine’s independent label, Oh Boy Records. Click here to purchase and stream. 
Kelsey’s music tows the line on authentic classic western sounding singer songwriter with just enough modern flair to even keep casual fans to the genre interested. Her Album is steeped in country overtones while still allowing her vocals to do the heavy lifting on the project. 
In addition to opening a number of dates for Prine, Waldon is embarking on a lengthy headlining tour in support of the album with newly announced dates including Oct. 9th at Mercury Lounge in New York City, Oct. 18th at Beachland Ballroom in Cleveland, Nov 1. at The Station Inn in Nashville, and Nov. 22 Cactus Cafe in Austin. A full list of tour dates can be found below. 
White Noise/White Lines is riddled with unique touches, very personal to Waldon. From the Chickasaw Tribe chant which Waldon recorded on her cell phone at her father’s hunting camp—added to the record with their blessing, of course—to a voicemail recording of Waldon’s father who’d called to tell her he’d heard her on the radio, to a snippet of her friends playing the bluegrass classic “Run Rabbit Run”; little moments and memories dropped into the album’s tracklist speak worlds to Waldon’s deep connection with her roots, her family, and her home state of Kentucky. All of these threads run tirelessly through White Noise/White Lines, weaving together a decidedly country sound, but not without some of Waldon’s unique influences shining through. The Band and The Meters, to Hazel Dickens and Ralph Stanley, to Ann Peebles and Bill Withers have all left their imprint on how Waldon fleshes out her songs.
