The Black Eyed Susans, based out of Murray, Kentucky, is the musical fusion of three distinctive, local songwriters. Using their multi-instrumentalism and traditional folk three-part harmonies, the Susans create a soundscape both familiar and unique. The trio will visit the Sounds Good studio this Friday for the first Live Lunch of the year.
Created in the spring of 2018, the Black Eyed Susans combines the individual styles of local songwriters, Melanie Davis, Kayla Little, and Stephanie Ray. Primarily rooted in folk, the trio also draws inspiration from doo-wop, classic rock, and contemporary pop. As each member rotates from guitar, to bass, to keyboard, to percussion, the Susans layer three-part harmonies to create a simultaneously traditional and modern sound.
Join Tracy Ross this Friday, January 11th, at noon for the first installment of the 2019 Live Lunch series. You can listen on the air, the WKMS website, or the Sounds Good Facebook page. Live Lunch is made possible by Murray State Digital Media Services, Just Hamburgers in Paducah, KY, and listeners like you.
