Rock On! This Week

“Well, what would you like to know about us? There is a lot,” said Kira Annalise with a laugh, “We are a married couple that play country music acoustically; we make our living at it and we adore being on the road and we adore being on stage,” adds her husband, stage mate and partner in music Willie Heath Neal.

Together they are known as The Waymores and this duo from Marietta, Georgia are making huge in-roads in the country music scene and beyond. They are energetic, engaging, playful, funny and oozing with “Southern” charm and we haven’t even begun to get to their music or their latest soon to be released album, “Stone Sessions” yet.

Kira and Willie each had successful solo careers before their union and when they tell the tale of how it all started; well, let’s just say one can’t help but immediately fall for this couple who have drawn comparisons to Johnny Cash and June Carter as well as other country music stalwarts.

Kira and I have been together for 14 years but The Waymores have only been together for about eight years,” began Willie. “Kira had a career before this, I had a career before we became The Waymores. I had a solo career with about five albums under my belt before The Waymores started. I lived in Nashville for a long time and did all of that schtick; almost famous three or four times, all of the stereotypical stuff but I just really enjoy doing this as The Waymores. When we make records, we do it with a full band but when we tour, we mostly just do it acoustic.”

“I also play guitar and sing,” continued the effervescent Kira, “Willie and I kind of do this as a song-swap kind of style but we both sing back-up for each other as well and it leads to a lot of really fun moments. Willie is usually the one who pulls out new stuff on stage and surprises me with it; that’s always fun (laughs). I didn’t start playing guitar until I met Willie, I saw him on stage one night and just had to have him and everything else up there. So, I kind of changed the trajectory of my life and learned how to play guitar and started writing songs right out of the gate. Willie was just a really supportive friend at first and then I sweet-talked him into dating me somehow (laughs). Willie was very adamant about not wanting a girlfriend at the time and I was very adamant that I was his girlfriend already (laughs); it took some work to reel him in but I did and now I’m winning (laughs).” 

“Stone Sessions” is scheduled for an April 8 release and is a 10-track full length masterpiece that harkens back to Grand Ole Opry style country music combined with some honky-tonk, mixed with a twinge of rock ‘n’ roll; in short, a well done, something for everyone record.

A lot of artists like to get in the cycle of an album every year or two and some have even put out more than one release a year but this isn’t The Waymores style and they like it that way.

“When we first started touring as The Waymores we had no intention of it being as successful as it became,” said a laughing Willie. “We both had solo careers and we were just playing around town acoustically to pay the bills and we didn’t want to oversaturate our names so, we came up with the name The Waymores. We were strictly just going to be a local thing, singing old standards but we wound up doing a cover and a little video of that John Prine song, “In Spite of Ourselves” and we made this little video and a documentary about us and it got legs! We had requests coming in from Arizona and other places saying, we want you at our clubs and we started touring off of this cover that we did before we even made an album. We had toured for almost a year and then decided to make an album and you try to get as much life out of an album as you can and we bled it for all that we could get out of it and then we made this record. You’re right, people will make an album and then tour for six months and say, I’m going to make another album and you’re like; what? Why are you making another album now?”

“I think it has a lot to do with the attention span of people these days; I think it’s a lot less,” adds Kira. “You used to be able to make an album and get pretty much a guaranteed two years out of it and these days it has kind of gone back to the method in the ‘50s where people are releasing singles because nobody wants to enjoy an entire body of work anymore. They want to listen to a single and listen to it until they can’t stand it anymore and then they want something new from you. Which, with streaming services, you can stream a song non-stop for days and be sick of it. I think a lot of that, people releasing albums; I don’t want to release an album every year let alone every six months but “Weeds” was released in 2019 so, we didn’t get much life out of it before we started recording this one. We started recording this at the end of 2020 but with the pandemic it felt like five years had past since “Weeds” had been a thing; it really felt like so many years had come and gone because of the state that the world was in. We definitely got life out of it but it wasn’t four or five years.”

“Stone Sessions” features guest appearances by Dale Watson and Asleep At The Wheel’s Katie Shore and once again, it was Kira’s persistent insistence that paid dividends.

“Stone Sessions” is our second album and it’s 10 songs,” explained Kira. “We met Katie Shore and she is fantastic; Dale Watson released a song called “Caught” on his 1995 album “Cheatin’ Heart Attack” and we had been in love with that song for years. Dale has always been a huge influence and inspiration to both of us and we decided to cover that song. So, we messaged Dale and his wife Celine and got their blessing and then we got up the courage; after several drinks probably (laughs) to ask him to play on it. He ended up playing lead on that track and then we went and sat-in with him one night at The Continental Club in Austin, Texas and Katie Shore was playing fiddle and we got to talking with her, a few weeks went by and I messaged her and said; how would you feel about playing fiddle on this track? She was all for it so, we got them both on one track and we are just thrilled about it.”

“My solo career when I was younger, I did a lot of dates in front of Dale and he kind of unwilling mentored me,” Willie laughed once again. “So, I had a history with Dale already and we had the privilege of opening a show for Dale and we rekindled that friendship and he and his wife really loved what we did. So, when we took the plunge to ask him to play guitar on it; which was all Kira by the way, she said, “Let’s ask Dale to play guitar” and I was like, No! You’re gonna piss him off (Laughs)!  Kira is always good about, we are gonna aim higher in what we think we can achieve and I’ll be damned if we don’t achieve everything she shoots for!”

“We’re really lucky that both Katie and Dale are such humble and kind musicians,” says Kira; “There were really no drinks or balls necessary to ask them, they are just really great people who would’ve done it regardless but we are thrilled to know that they appreciate what we are doing and hopefully they support as well by putting their names on the track.”

“When we decided that we were going to do this album,” continued Willie; “Recording in a quarantine scenario is a lot different than getting all of the musicians in a room and kicking songs around and once we decided to do this album and that we were going to do “Caught,” we knew right away that we had to do “Caught” early because Dale’s schedule is very hectic and that it might take him a bit to get back to us. So, we cut that track second knowing how long that it might take us to get this album done and that it might take Dale up to six months to get his guitar parts done; it didn’t but we wanted to be prepared for it.” “The whole album overall; we started recording in late November or December of 2020 and we finished about six months ago and now we’ve just been doing publicity and press; that’s where the fun part starts,” said a laughing Kira.

So; where can we find “Stone Sessions once its released Willie?

Chicken Ranch Records is a record label out of Austin, TX that was voted “Best Independent Label” in Austin and they have an eclectic roster and that’s our label; there is a lot of diverse stuff on there.”  

Ah, good to know but Kira; how do you two plan on supporting and promoting it?

“In November I had to have vocal cord surgery so we took three months off but we played our first show back on February 5 and then we did some private events. We just started this tour on March 3 and we are booked out right now until June but we plan on touring as much as possible for it; we are doing a lot across the south all across the United States and hopefully we’ll be hitting some new spots this year as well. We never want to stop touring, that is our heart and soul.”

Steve has made very few recent appearances and he’s getting back into the scene in part with this appearance.
