Kellie Cain stakes her claim at The Pub, Tamworth
The Pub 18-5-07
Fresh from Murrurundi’s King of the Ranges Stockman’s Challenge, Hunter Valley singer-songwriter Kellie Cain showed no signs of saddle sores at The Pub on Friday night.
Although spending a week riding the ranges around the lower Hunter Valley, Kellie turned up bright eyed and bushy-tailed for her first band gig at The Pub.
Together with a tight little combo, composed of Maje on drums and Todd on acoustic bass, Kellie presented three excellent sets of her tasty original songs and some excellent covers.
The Pub’s Friday night audience was treated to songs from Hank Williams, Dolly Parton, Tom Waits and the Ozark Mountain Daredevils, all stamped indelibly with the Kellie Cain trademark.
Her easy to listen to voice is unlike any other I can think of. When you’re making comparisons, it’s extremely difficult as Kellie Cain sounds like … Kellie Cain!
She showcased several tracks from her debut CD, Girl With A Suitcase (produced by the ever tasteful Glen Hannah) and Kellie’s originals such as Thinking ‘bout Elvis, Wasted, The Ballad of Mary Jackson and Warrior Girl went down a treat with the appreciative Pub audience.
It was good to see her doing some brisk business in the CD sales department too. Obviously Pub patrons have excellent taste in music!
Kellie first performed at The Pub during the January Country Music Festival, firstly as a guest on Thelma and Louise’s Choice Picks, then returned later that week for a featured guest spot on the very popular Bill Chambers Sessions.
Let’s hope it won’t be the last we see of Kellie in the Country Music Capital. There should be more artists around who dare to sing covers with a difference while making them their very own.
She’s heading out shortly on a tour of the North Coast, but you can catch her in and around the Hunter Valley most weekends when she’s not otherwise occupied.
If you’d like to find out more about Kellie, visit
www.myspace.com/kelliecain  and have a listen to some of her songs. You’ll love this girl. She’s definitely got the goods.
