Even as they were named 2004's Emerging Artist of the Year by the International Bluegrass Music Association, the sound of King Wilkie was extending outward in directions that could no longer be comfortably contained under the bluegrass banner. The band spent the next two years touring non-stop, building a die-hard following and honing an idiosyncratic new sound. The result is the evocative, harrowing Low Country Suite - a dramatic push into uncharted sonic terrain. Produced by Jim Scott (Tom Petty, Dixie Chicks, Wilco), Low Country Suite draws on the pioneering spirit of Sweetheart of the Rodeo-era Byrds, Gram Parsons' solo LPs, and 'Country Honk' Stones, while the album's gentler songs are equally informed by the stark, confessional folk of Nico, Nick Drake, and Leonard Cohen. Haunting yet strangely uplifting, Low Country Suite is the captivating sound of a band willing to leave precedent behind to create intoxicating new music from the jagged remains of yesterday.
