The WDVX Blue Plate Special – 10/17 – Rees Shad / Killbillies
October 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
One could consider the singer/songwriter, storyteller, and multi-instrumentalist Rees Shad to be a survivor. Over the course of his career he has demonstrated an ability to create music that’s both poignant and profound, stories shared from the heart, but which resonate with universal appeal.
With a masterful hand at crafting alluring melodies and short story songs whose characters interact and reoccur in eloquent musical vignettes, Shad has built an impressive catalog of 14 solo albums (and another 16 collaborative recordings) which demonstrate his love of blending both music and narrative genres.
Killbillies are a folk/roots band that had their origins in 2010.
Ben Childs leads the band through multiple genres, tying it all together with their signature “banjo and bass” sound. From festivals to rock clubs and live streams to living rooms this exciting trio will get you smiling and dancing along before you know it. Their new single “Promised Dream” is available now on all streaming services along with their two full studio albums. You can listen to them on the music page of this website. Come join the fun and see them live! Check out their gigs page or social media for details.
