Kelcy Mae – Milo’s Music Parlor – It’s New Orleans
Even in a town like New Orleans where life is often lived in public on the street and stoop, singer-songwriter Kelcy Mae’s heart is on her sleeve. And in her adopted city. At prestigious festivals across the country and in more intimate gigs at home, Kelcy’s lyrics reveal her background as a published poet (as Kelcy Wilburn) and her melodies come from a blend of genetic Americana and church: growing up in rural Shreveport Louisiana singing hymns. A long way from church, in this edition of Milo’s Music Parlor, Kelcy tells Kim about the drama that seems to open up before her and naturally cry out for her pen and voice – like moving to New Orleans, falling in love and finding herself living on the same block as a murder.
