The Waymores Live at Duke's Indy
The Waymores are Atlanta-based married honky tonk Americana duo Kira Annalise and Willie Heath Neal. Media fans include Vintage Guitar who said "While 21st-century Nashville pays lip service to this timeless sound, the Waymores keep it alive" and the Austin Chronicle asserted "The Waymores... combine the bright and brash like June Carter and Johnny Cash..." They are gearing up to release their stunning new long player Greener Pastures on 8/25/23 via Chicken Ranch Records.
The collection was recorded with legendary producer Shel Talmy.
Talmy is a record producer, songwriter and arranger best known for his 1960's work with The Who, The Kinks, David Bowie and many others. In an interview with musician/producer/songwriter Artie Wayne, Talmy says "I'm a hands-on producer, meaning that I always work with the artist on choosing material, doing the arrangements, getting musicians if necessary, choosing the studio and being there for the entire production on through the mixes and mastering." He took the same approach with The Waymores.
Once in Los Angeles, the session was engineered by Grammy award winning guitar player, composer, engineer and songwriter Johnny Lee Schell whose tremendous resume includes work with Bonnie Raitt, Lucinda Williams, BB King and Delbert McClinton amongst others.
