Doug and Telisha Williams will stop by Jumpin' on the Bed on Saturday, December 15, before their concert at the Mockingbird in Staunton.  Rumor is the whole band might even play...

Dead right, honest songwriting delivered in a hauntingly beautiful yet gritty, neo-traditional Americana wrapper. Doug and Telisha write songs about a place where old time religion, superstition, run down bars, gravel parking lots and boarded up factories all mingle together. On stage they have a stunning charisma that can transform a raucous bar into a quiet listening room, with even the most jaded hipsters waiting for the next line before ordering another PBR, then launch right into a blistering rocker that will have everyone clapping and singing along. Quick wit and fearless delivery make every show original and personal.  They are currently touring behind their latest release, Ghost of the Knoxville Girl.

“ I love to hear artists developing from record to record/show to show, and the growth of Doug & Telisha Williams is here in their new CD, "Ghost of the Knoxville Girl." They now have the old-time, pre-70’s country, mountain & honky-tonk road house music all blended together into their own whiskey - open the jar and have a pull. The steel playing of Lloyd Maines on here makes this an absolute classic.”,  --Darrell Scott
