Big Kettle Drum is a banjo slinging, foot stomping, suitcase kicking, slide guitar Americana band.
Having found themselves on the “Best of” list two years running for the Americana Rock Mix, BKD is set to ride that success into the release of their 2014 EP “Lock & Key”. The band’s sound has continued to evolve into a powerful mix of infectious melodies and soaring harmonies while leaning on that foot-stomping backbeat that has defined the earlier incarnations of Big Kettle Drum.
Their most ambitious work to date, “Lock & Key” wanders into the territory of Pop melodies with a nod to the band’s older influences such as The Beatles, Billy Joel and Johnny Cash, with a hint of new influences like Jason Isbell and David Ramirez.
The band is currently on an extensive “House Show” tour in partnership with Kids Beating Cancer. The tour will raise $50,000 for the non-profit’s Pediatric Transplant Center at Florida Hospital for Children.
“Lock & Key” has a street date of late March with a special digital download available immediately through Pledge Music.
