Ever More Nest
Kelcy Mae Wilburn
Like the farming homesteaders of her native Mississippi River Delta, Ever More Nest builds houses of emotion among fields of mercy, forests of fears, and streams of consciousness. These are houses that are lived in, that draw in visitors to comfortable confines with the promise of warmth despite the dust, grit, and dangers of the day.
Rooted in Southern musical traditions and infused with confessional 90s angst, the music of Ever More Nest can likewise lull and rock you right off a front porch. Ever More Nest’s dynamic, homegrown voice—hugged by lush, church-pew harmonies— is complemented by ghostly, effusive guitars, spirited mandolin and banjo, mournful fiddle, and a rhythm section steady as a country train.
Ever More Nest ( Kelcy Mae Wilburn) also travels as a duo, four piece or six piece band. Contact us for routing and pricing.
Quotes and Booking Information
"Though a warm and inviting record on the surface, the lyrics have more thoughtful, often darker undertones that make it a richer listen...Wilburn doesn’t take the easy way out; and when she says something sympathetic, she works to make it ring true." — OffBeat
"Summons a new voice in the musical world of New Orleans, that puts the song and lyrics first and lets the rhythmic foundation naturally follow. The band runs with the poetic freedom of Lilly Hiatt while conjuring the rocking anthems of Heartless Bastards" — Glide Magazine
Ever More Nest is attended the FARM Conference in Chicago Oct 2022 and will continue US touring in 2023 and on into 2024 with the full band and also as a duo.
