w/ Taylor Kingman & Willy Tea Taylor



Bob Sumner

If an imaginary space exists somewhere between Austin, Bakersfield, and his hometown of Vancouver, Bob Sumner found it with his sophomore record, Some Place To Rest Easy. Sumner’s refusal to copy and paste from the greats of the past informs his every musical step. “All of my heroes, all the people that did it so well—whether it be George Jones or Willie, Waylon, whoever—they weren't these museum pieces,” he explains. “They were always creating something new, something different.” This approach to taking old tried and true recipes and moving forward with them paid dividends with Sumner’s debut record Wasted Love Songs. “First class Americana,” said No Depression. “Pure gold,” opined the Georgia Straight. 

“Has the heft and heart of an instant classic,” declared Broadway World. Audiences across North America agreed when Sumner lit out and provided opening duties for the likes of Colter Wall, Willie Watson, Kelsey Waldon, Corb Lund, and J.P. Harris. In Texas, while on a support tour he was invited onstage by new friend and admirer Hayes Carll, and at a showcase in Nashville, Sumner planted his flag at the world famous Bluebird Cafe—fulfilling a lifelong dream in the process. Of Some Place To Rest Easy, friend and label mate Jeffrey Martin states  “Bob Sumner writes a hell of a song and this album is a love letter to a country sound we don’t hear anymore. Lots of people are going to feel like someone out there understands them when they hear this record.  Lots of couples will slow dance in the kitchen. Singles will slow dance with their dogs.  Dudes will get teary in the truck on the way home from work”. Some Place To Rest Easy will be released September 6 on Fluff & Gravy Records (Worldwide) and The North Country Collective (Canada).

Taylor Kingman

Between his work fronting TK & The Holy Know-Nothings and his 2017 solo debut Wannabe, Kingman is no stranger to the darkness. But here he transcends the desolate rock bottom, as Hollow Sound whispers, then howls us into that place beyond brokenness where breathing begins again. To listen deeply to these songs is to lay down naked on the wet, unforgiving earth, pushing the ground through your fingers; it is to be soothed by the wholeness of who we are, filth and all. Kingman pulls no punches with his writing, and requires us to listen with the same honesty.

Willy Tea Taylor

There is no question that Willy Tea Taylor’s life as a singer/songwriter was predetermined – his role realized the moment he wrote his first song. His inspirations drawn from two separate wells; Living the life of a cattleman’s kid and experiencing true visionaries music like Greg Brown, John Hartford, and Guy Clark. The image of Guy Clark and friends sitting around the kitchen table loaded with ashtrays full of butts, half-smoked cigarettes, food, and booze on one Christmas Eve in 1975 burned into Taylors’ soul. Those guys, swapping songs without pretense, lit Willy Tea’s fire. And ever since, its led purpose with passion – finding a hang by curating relationships through musical friendships that get him closer to his own Clark style kitchen table.
