DETAILS:
Albert Simpson and Highly Kind “Burly and jovial with a bushy beard that dangles a pigtail, Albert Simpson looks the part of both yesterday and today, and that perfectly captures the spirit of his music. Simpson writes, sings, and plays guitar for Highly Kind, a young Gadsden, Alabama band whose members wear southern rock badges with honor, but who also inject the old genre with newfound vitality.” --Tom Clarke, Elmore Magazine. Self taught, but inspired by his father, Simpson began playing the guitar at age 12. Influenced by bands like Little Feat, the Grateful Dead, and the Allman Brothers Band, Albert joined his first band at age 15. After touring the colleges and couches of the southern music scene, Highly Kind emerged as Simpsons sole project around 1995. The faces of the band have changed throughout the years but the music has remained true to its roots. Focusing mainly on the band, Simpson also performs solo where he utilizes percussion instruments like the tambourine and a porch board along with the acoustic guitar. Johnny Sandlin, who produced great acts like The Allman Brothers Band and Widespread Panic, brought his expertise to “Dont Wake Albert”, the bands first studio CD which was released by Rockin Camel Music. The CD has received raving reviews in publications such as: Vintage Guitar Magazine, Relix, and Hittin the Note. It has even been said that it ranks as one of Johnnys best projects, and parallels his work on Widespread Panics landmark second album. Simpsons natural southern voice makes you believe he is talking directly to you, which creates a heartfelt and truly honest sound.
