Bio: The Milk Carton Kids

THE MILK CARTON KIDS
Listening to The Milk Carton Kids -- Joey Ryan and Kenneth Pattengale -- talk about their creative process, it’s easy to imagine them running in opposite directions even while yoked together. “Joey and I famously have an adversarial relationship,” Pattengale says. They dig at each other in interviews and on stage, where Ryan plays his own straight man, while Pattengale tunes his guitar. The songs emerge somewhere in the silences and the struggle between their sensibilities. They have been known to argue over song choices. They have been known to argue about everything from wardrobe to geography to grammar. But their singing is the place where they make room for each other and the shared identity that rises out of their combined voices. Defying the conventions of melody and harmony is a strategy The Milk Carton Kids have consciously embraced. “Sometimes we’ll switch parts for a beat or a bar or a note,” Ryan says. “And that starts to obfuscate what is the melody and what is the supporting part because we think of both of them being strong enough to stand alone.”

“There are only so many things you can do alone in life that allow you to transcend your sense of self for even a short period,” Pattengale continues. “I’m the lucky recipient of a life in which for hundreds of times, day after day, I get to spend an hour that is like speaking a language only two people know and doing it in a space with others who want to hear it.

The Only Ones, the group’s new record (out now on the band’s own Milk Carton Records imprint in partnership with Thirty Tigers), finds Ryan and Pattengale performing a stripped-down acoustic set without a backing band. On The Only Ones, the pair returns to the core of what they are about musically: the duo.

Ryan and Pattengale also recently hosted the 18th annual Americana Honors & Awards for the second year in a row, while the group has been nominated for three Grammy Awards: Best Folk Album in 2013 (The Ash & Clay); Best American Roots Performance in 2015 (“The City of Our Lady”); and Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical, in 2018 (All the Things That I Did and All the Things That I Didn’t Do).

Over the past few years, life has changed dramatically for The Milk Carton Kids. Pattengale has moved to Nashville, where he is also producing records; Ryan is now the father of two children and works as a producer on Live from Here with Chris Thile. A break from years of non-stop touring, Ryan says, has yielded “space outside of the band that gives us perspective on what the band is.”

KATIE PRUITT
Katie Pruitt, a 27-year-old artist who recently released Expectations -- a defiant coming-of-age debut album about being a lesbian raised Catholic in Atlanta -- is about to enter into her Saturn returns era, which means her life is going to get weird. Or so Brandi Carlile, the six-time Grammy winner, tells her. "You're going to freak out, probably," Carlile says. "Right when you turn 30." But, Carlile assures her, "I feel like the best records happened on these big, precipice moments in life."

It's here, in this big moment filled with so much uncertainty and turmoil, Pruitt is choosing to embrace the weirdness. Whether it's going deep exploring and questioning her spiritual identity on her breakout podcast, "The Recovering Catholic," or bearing her soul with her trademark wit and wisdom each night on stage as part of her extensive fall headline tour, or showcasing her mischievous side with her forthcoming holiday song, "Merry Christmas, Mary Jane," it's clear Pruitt is coming into her own and establishing herself as not only an incredible musician, but an artist with a real voice and distinctive perspective.

In the last year-and-a-half and in spite of the pandemic (which hit the month following her album was released), Pruitt has forged ahead, garnering widespread acclaim and praise from press and fellow artists including Carlile, Ruston Kelly, Leslie Jordan, Bob Weir and many more. In addition to being nominated for Emerging Act of the Year at the Americana Music Association, Pruitt has been highlighted as a Rolling Stone "Artist You Need To Know," one of NPR Music's "Slingshot: 20 Artists To Watch" and Southwest Magazine's "Artists on the Rise" and was featured on NPR Music's "Tiny Desk (Home) Concert" series as well as "CBS Saturday Morning."

Bio: Katie Pruitt

Katie Pruitt is the girl next door with a guitar in her lap writing songs in her bedroom until sunrise. Pruitt is a has-to-live-it-to-write-it kind of songwriter that achieves the kind of lyrical simplicity that even the best songwriters strive for. Her unique guitar picking accompanied by her very personal lyrics and truth-questioning spirit is a throwback to the classical sounds of Joni Mitchell, John Prine, and Brandi Carlile.

Pruitt is a Nashville transplant, originally hailing from a small suburb outside of Athens, Georgia. Splitting her time between writing songs and waiting tables, her hard work paid off after she landed a Tuesday night residency at The Basement in Nashville. One of those nights in 2016, she was heard by the right people and signed a publishing deal with Round Hill Music Publishing. Not long after that she was offered a booking deal with Paradigm Talent Agency and hasn’t had time to wait tables since.

Pruitt has been praised as one of the most talented songwriters and best kept secret in Nashville today. In 2016 she humbly accepted the first annual BMI Songwriting Scholarship for her original song, “Ordinary.” This recognition then lead her to be the honored recipient of the Buddy Holly Prize in 2017, a prize previously awarded to the talents of Emily King and Ben Howard through the Songwriter Hall of Fame. Pruitt also made her way on the bill for the 2017 Pilgrimage festival alongside headliners, Justin Timberlake and Eddie Vedder.

2018 has no plans for slowing Pruitt down. The successful release of her OurVinyl live session on YouTube has reached over 50K people in a short few months. Catch her playing Americana Festival in Nashville this September as well as on the road playing a show in your city.
