Album Notes
Chris Keesey is a songwriter from the Appalachian Foothills of Southeastern Ohio. He writes songs about growing up, growing old, living and loving in rural America. He draws songwriting influence from the greats of classic country and modern Americana to create songs and sounds based on the stories and raw truths of living in the country.

The "Dyin' Town" EP is Chris' debut album and is reflective of his range as a songwriter. Songs can vary from the straight-up Country Anthem that is "Ready Made Rebel" to the more Alt-Country/Americana style of "Dyin'Town." In all cases Chris' songs are often the narrative of life "out here" that go well beyond the tractor and the tailgate.

The EP features the best musicians and players from across Southeast Ohio and West Virginia. This elite group of players breath life into the songs and give them a large and very unique sound. The songs have the polish of a Nashville-produced album while maintaining the unique and true qualities of the Southeast Ohio and West Virginia sound.
