If you would like to help keep the wheels on the Hub and on The Moose become a patron at

Happy Hosting, Happy New Year - Rob Ellen



Here we have the much anticipated follow up to Tulsa, Oklahoma born and raised, Kalyn Fay’s debut album Bible Belt. Fay has a fine set of players join her. The line up includes labelmates Carter Sampson and Lauren Barth plus fellow Oklahoma singer-songwriter recording act John Fulbright and Jared Tyler. Some of you will be aware of Tyler from his work with Malcolm Holcombe, both on record and performing live. It’s an impressive line-up got it also includes Paddy Ryan, Matt Magenkurth, Olivia McGraw, Rachel La Vonne, Cooper Waugh and Bo Hallford among others.  

Fay is the real deal. A particularly fine writer, she engages the listener from the off. You couldn’t wish for a better opener than title track, Good Company as she speaks of becoming tired of the flashing tvs and bright lights of the city. All she wants is to settle down with some good company. There is a handful more like it, plus a slow burner or two. On what is a well rounded record. Recorded at Fellowship Hall Sound in Little Rock, Arkansas Good Company was produced by Jesse Adcock (Hard Working Americans), and though impressive I do feel Fay will make better records. I don’t think we will have to wait too long either. 

Most impressive tracks include Longtime Coming, on which her care and attention to every syllable and general ability to create space (and relaxed near lazy feel) is reminiscent of Gillian Welch. Without her becoming anyone other than herself. On speaking of the train humming it’s sweet familiar tune and her likewise it sizes up well alongside the dobro warmed,  Alright In The End. Here she is found in reflective mood as she speaks of looking at the stars shinning over her beloved Tulsa. 

Baby, Don’t You Worry plied  in fetching accordion vies for best track on the record. It is the kind of song you want to hear again and again. It isn’t the only occasion while listening to Good Company I become tempted to press replay. For the record is one of those records that the listener will forever be discovering a new favourite of the moment. As more of her finely crafted work is absorbed. There is every chance fans of Welch and the Mary Gauthier will also take to Fay’s work. Fay is a member of the latest folk country singer-songwriters, and one of those who’s reputation has been more word of mouth than radio plays!
