DADDY the band's Page



Alabama homeboy Will Kimbrough (2005 Americana Music Association Instrumentalist of the Year) and Kentucky-bred Tommy Womack (Two-time winner of the Nashville Scene Best Song Award) first came together in 1992 in the bis-quits, who made one impressive guitar-fest record for John Prine's Oh-Boy! label. They discovered a musical and personal kinship that has continued to grow over the years and individual careers - which is now DADDY. Sounding like The Faces with two Ron Woods backed by echoes of Los Lobos and The Band's reverence for all American music, DADDY released their first studio album - FOR A SECOND TIME - this summer.

While DADDY primarily tours as an acoustic duo, the full band made its official industry debut at this year's SXSW Music Festival in Austin, TX with three blistering shows in one day. Comprised of Kimbrough & Womack, and heavy-hitter A-listers John Deaderick (Dixie Chicks, Michael McDonald, Patty Griffin), Paul Griffith (one of Nashville's most sought-after session drummers) and Dave Jacques (John Prine, Emmylou Harris), the band could not afford the trip.

Armed with a lot of content, creativity and a small window of time, DADDY asked their fans for help getting the band to SXSW '09 in Austin, TX. In return for a small donation, each fan received a limited-edition, one-of-a-kind "Live At Norm's" CD package with 12 tracks from recent live recordings, including several new songs from their forthcoming studio album - FOR A SECOND TIME. The band raised over $4,000 in nine days. After returning from Texas, DADDY followed up with another fan-exclusive limited-edition CD - "Rare & Unreleased, Vol. 1" - which helped fund the final stages of the new release.

The band wanted to show appreciation to those early believers. On Mother's Day, the band launched a "Name Your Own Price" pre-order campaign. DADDY was gambling, but the average price offered by fans was a generous $15.36 (more than double that of the average price paid by Radiohead fans). In addition to the new CD, the pre-order campaign was expanded to offer exclusive DADDY mugs, magnets and steins as well as One-Of-A-Kind Hand Illustrated DADDY Ties, Two DADDYs (Will AND Tommy) to Play Ball with your kids for 90-minute session, One DADDY (Will or Tommy) to Mow Your Yard and Autographed, and an Original Artwork-embellished Toro Rake and Vac Leaf Blower, which sold to one lucky fan in Pomeroy, IA. "Everybody's looking for a new angle nowadays, something nobody's tried before, and garden implements are IT," says Womack. "What says 'Daddy' better than a leaf-blower? Okay, an outdoor grill maybe, but we're not going to ship an outdoor grill."

DADDY's new studio record - FOR A SECOND TIME - was released just in time for Father's Day '09. Consistent with the band's 2005 fan-favorite live CD - AT THE WOMEN'S CLUB - DADDY's new album is a seamless mesh of rock, gospel, rockabilly and gritty juke-joint blues.

FOR A SECOND TIME - 1 on the Euro-Americana Music Chart, August 2009!


"...They meet through their humor as lyricists and their shared love of GOOD OLD-FASHIONED SWAMP-BRED GUITAR RIFFS, and as amply evidenced throughout this album, the result is AN INFECTIOUSLY GOOD TIME for all concerned." ­

"The musical approach is rustic, recalling hints of Dylan, the Band, Clapton, the Allman Brothers, and Little Feat. Give this Daddy the respect it deserves." ­ New Times

"...FANS OF ANYONE FROM DYLAN to WILCO will find plenty to like about DADDY." ­ News4U

Just rcvd "For a Second Time" yesterday. It's great , of course. That'll be staying in the player for a while. And my Dad, a churchgoing Lutheran really liked "Martin Luther" from the live CD.I
thought "Nightmares" was the killer tune, but it's all great. Best of luck .
