ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
"Southern Rock With An Attitude." That is how the fans describe No Fences' blistering, driving, and Southern-soulful sound. Hailing from Central Kentucky, these four unique and talented musicians bring many years of experience together to create a truly memorable style of rock-and-roll with a definite southern twist. If you hear No Fences even once, the harmonies, riffs, and thunderous rhythm section is sure to stick in your mind forever. If you've ever seen No Fences live, you've said, "I can't believe I survived last night."

Founded in 2014 by bassist Glen VanDell, who hails from Chicago originally, the idea was to put together a band of top-notch musicians that would play Southern and classic rock, Americana, blues, and maybe a little country music to have some fun. Glen is a bit of an enigma, given his upbringing in South Chicago. He grew up on a steady diet of blues standards, Motown, Memphis soul, and 70's Southern rock greats like Lynyrd Skynyrd, Molly Hatchet, and Blackfoot. Glen's eclectic tastes would form the foundation of what would eventually become No Fences.

His first recruit was Kyle Shepherd, from Annville, Kentucky, who brought almost 30 years of professional guitar-playing experience to the band. Kyle started playing in the bars and honky-tonks of Eastern Kentucky and Northern Tennessee at the ripe-old-age of 13. Kyle brought his exquisite songwriting, lead and harmony vocals, and jaw-dropping lead guitar-playing ability to the fold. Kyle's sensibility and "Ron Wood passing-movement style of playing" is the core of what No Fences does, musically. Glen and Kyle would prove to be the core of what No Fences would become.

Glen then called on an old band-mate, Jamie Eads, of Georgetown, Kentucky, to fill the drum throne. Jamie grew up listening to hard rock and heavy metal of the 70's, 80's and 90's, but had also spent some years in Memphis cutting heads on the Beale Street blues scene. He was no stranger to the vision that the burgeoning No Fences had for this band. Jamie was searching for the opportunity to bring "Bonham" to the South. He brought his 25 years of drumming experience to the table and the group set out to write and record what would become their first record, "All In Or Nothing."

When the band found Tyler Halsey, a native of Rogers, Kentucky, they knew the final line-up was set. Tyler is a stone-cold vocalist with the tone and timbre of a velvet hammer, and guitar chops like Mike Campbell-meets-Allen Collins. Tyler spent several years in the Denver, Colorado scene honing his chops, and it pays massive dividends. He brought back to Kentucky his 15-plus years of professional experience into the band and made No Fences into a cohesive unit that may yet conquer the charts. Tyler came into the gang with his no-nonsense writing and front-man abilities and there has been no looking back.

No Fences was crowned king of the long-running and famous, "Decent Exposure" contest of 100.1 WKQQ FM of Lexington, Kentucky, in 2016, for good reason. They have joined the stage with giants such as Drive-By-Truckers, Trumbone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, and continue to book shows on the regional and national level.

No Fences jumped back into the studio in mid-2017 with engineer and producer Phil Weisenberger, to create the follow-up to "All In Or Nothing", that is sure to be worthy of label attention. The new album is expected in late 2017 or early 2018.

"Bad Man" is the first single on the new album. "Everybody sings about being a good man. Sometimes you aren't. That's what this song is about."
