LadyCouch was born out of Keshia Bailey and Allen Thompson’s love for one another and their
love for honest, soulful music. The pair seem to come from two different worlds, musically, with
Keshia hailing from the straight-ahead throwback Soul group Magnolia Sons, and Allen from the
psychedelic folk of the Allen Thompson Band.

Backed by a rotating cast of players who often tour with the likes of Keith Urban, Tesky
Brothers, INXS and more, LadyCouch’s Appalachian upbringings and their genuine appreciation
for Soul, Rock, Funk, Country and Folk allow them to build bridges across genres to create a
sound all its own. On any given evening in Nashville it’s not uncommon to see folks from Old
Crow Medicine Show, Maggie Rose, Jon Latham, Little Bandit, Drivin N Cryin, and many other
Nashville mainstay musicians jamming with the big band with the nonsense name.

When LadyCouch is on stage, they do everything with a purpose and drive that’s rare to see in a
group that large. While their sound might be reminiscent of the huge hippie orchestras of
decades past, the group is by no means a nostalgia act. Their approach to writing, melodies,
harmonies and improvisation is as original and refreshing as you can get.
