Plastic Bouquet is the coming together of like-minded artists from two hemispheres. New Zealander singer-songwriter Marlon Williams was on the money when he discovered the folk duo Kacy & Clayton from Saskatoon Saskatchawen Canada, and immediately liked what he heard.
With one thing leading to another, Williams headed to Canada in the Christmas of 2018 where the three wrote and recorded the bulk of these songs, which document new friends discovering their lifelong shared passion for Western, country, folk and troubadour traditions. From the country rhythm of the Carter Family to ’60s folk pop sounds of Nancy and Lee, this is a stunning album filled with airy space, twang, and soothing vocals. Kacy sums it up: “The three of us are just old timey kids.”
Plastic Bouquet by Kacy & Clayton and Marlon Williams is out Dec 11 via New West.
