Known as Southern Sugar, Laura and Kelley have very different backgrounds in music, however, they have a few other things in common…they are both from the south and they are both sweet as “southern sugar”. While very different stylistically in music, when the combination of Laura’s poetic lyrics and soulful and folk melodies are stirred in with Kelley’s fun loving and heartfelt stories of timeless circumstances, along with a squeeze of some sassy southern flare, they bring a collection of original songs touching a variety of genres within Americana and Country music, but most importantly their songs touch every emotion of the heart.
As a result of their songwriting collaboration, their songs have placed in various prestigious songwriting contests including the International Songwriting Contest and Nashville Tennessee Concert Songwriting Contest, which resulted in rave reviews as being hit songwriters. Working with established artists and producers such as Producer and Award Winning Guitarist Rich Brotherton of the Robert Earl Keen Band, Producer Chip Martin of Nashville Chip Martin Productions, Artist and Producer Joshua Singleton of Nashville, Tennessee and Producer and Musician Michael Ashworth of the Grammy award winning group Steep Canyon Rangers, their songs have aired nationwide. Recognize the name Ashworth? “The apple does not fall far from the tree” …as this is Laura’s son. They are sweet and so is their original music. So “getcha” some Southern Sugar!
