Makky Kaylor and The Swanky South Players
Please note, this event has expired.
Beale Street brewed. Music Row crafted. Makky Kaylor’s original top shelf blend is an intoxicating mix of his authentic ‘Memphis soul meets Nashville classics’ roots with a splash of jazz that is served up stylishly with the singer-songwriter-entertainer’s winsome southern charm. Some call it ‘southern soul’ or ‘country soul.’ Makky calls it “The Swanky South!”
An integral behind the scenes part of the music industry for most of his life, Makky was considered an A-list Music Row session singer for many years singing demos for numerous Hall of Fame Songwriters including Harlan Howard, Wayland Holyfield and Randy Goodrum. During this time Makky also worked as a songwriter for various music publishers including those owned by Willie Nelson, Hank Cochran and Larry Gatlin with whom he recorded a duet and performed. The smooth soulful vocal stylist was also featured on hundreds of commercial jingles for major products including The Grand Ole Opry, Blue Diamond Almonds, Williams Sausage and many more.
Makky and his music have been featured on The Hallmark Channel, RFD-TV, Family Channel, Circle TV, Heartland, CMT, in motion pictures, as well as major venues including The Ryman Auditorium, Riverbend Centre in Austin, The Tennessee Theater, and many other stages throughout his career. Makky authored “Confessions of a Session Singer” for Hal Leonard Book Publishing sold worldwide, had a principle role in a $15 million theater production at The Miracle Theater for two years in the Smokies, and has had quite a few of his songs recorded by an array of other artists over the years.
Makky currently plays venues, theatres, and events across the United States often taking his full band The Swanky South Players or playing piano and performing solo.
Previous Makky Kaylor albums of note include his current “LIVE From The Swanky South!” (2020) and “A Little Sentimental – A Storybook Album of Nashville Classics” (2013). A brand new studio album is in development and will be co-produced with renowned drummer/producer Mark Beckett (legendary producer Barry Beckett’s son) who is practically southern rhythm and blues royalty and will feature Makky’s inimitable signature smooth, soulfully southern songs and artistry. Exciting things are on the way for Makky and his discerning audience!
