Discovery: Kentucky Avenue

Eugene is the latest single release from Kentucky Avenue, an American country-folk band with a penchant for stellar songwriting.

By Jane Howkins

Whilst Eugene is definitely a country-rock song, it also features elements of folk, Americana and bluegrass, with the track containing a driving rhythm which will instantly work its way into your head. The main melody is almost haunting sounding, and there is something rather melancholic about the whole thing. The lead vocals are very powerful and really add something special to Eugene – have a listen to the song below and see if you agree!
