about Ever More Nest
Ever More Nest, the new project from New Orleans-based songwriter Kelcy Mae, released its lauded debut album on October 12, 2018. As Ever More Nest, Kelcy has adopted a full-fledged Americana style that has drawn comparisons to Gregory Alan Isakov, Gillian Welch, and Nanci Griffith. Kelcy’s oft-lauded poeticism remains a calling card of her songs and is on full display on The Place That You Call Home.
Produced by 2018 Grammy-nominated producer Neilson Hubbard (Mary Gauthier), the album accentuates the best of Kelcy’s emotive, authentic voice, delicate yet driving guitar work, and honest, observational songwriting that poses the universal question: “Just where do I belong?” According to Folk Radio UK, “The answer is clearly in any discerning Americana CD collection.” The album is available on all digital sales and streaming platforms.
Ever More Nest is currently touring the United States with band arrangements ranging from a guitar duo to a full seven-piece band with two guitarists, banjo & mandolin, pedal steel, fiddle, bass and drums.
Ever More Nest’s Kelcy Mae has performed at numerous music festivals including the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival and Milwaukee’s SummerFest. She has been nominated for several Best of the Beat Awards from Offbeat Magazine. Ever More Nest’s debut continues to garner praise from local, national, and international media.
