Hattiesburg's Shelby Kemp, member of two bands recently recognized during Signature Magazine's Best of the Pine Belt Award Show, has released a new single and Signature Magazine is proud to present it here first.
The original song, "Balloons" features the talented Kemp on acoustic guitar, pedal steel, vocals, and harmony vocals, and was recorded earlier this week in New Orleans.
The song debuted on WUSM 88.5 earlier today and is already in heavy rotation. The song can be requested at any time here: www.southernmissradio.com/requests.
Kemp is frontman of Royal Horses and guitarist/vocalist for Midnight Revel, but he also regularly performs solo shows throughout the area. Both bands – along with dozens of others – are scheduled to perform next month during the annual Piney Woods Picnic held Sept. 12-15 at Elks Lake Music Park south of Hattiesburg.
