NASHVILLE, TENN. – Nashville based Alt-Americana country artist Justin Kaleb shares his intimate and acoustic side with the release of his brand-new music video for his current single Shaky Hand. (Click HERE to watch.) This song is available on all digital streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, and more.
Filmed at Red Barn Studio in his hometown of Northwest Arkansas, this video strips down Shaky Hand into an acoustic, personal performance. Showcasing Justin’s vocals and guitar skills, the video breaks the song down to its bones and turns it into a boot-tappin’ folk-country song that’s easy on the ears. With nothing but Justin’s soulful, raspy vocals accompanied by his Martin guitar, this video highlights the importance of the song and evokes a more intimate feel. Shaky Hand reminds the listeners to keep their vices in check, and to stay on the right path for themselves. “I’m excited to finally have a video out that coincides with this release,” says Justin. “This song is super meaningful to me and I wanted to just sit down and play it, me and my guitar. No big production, just the song.”
Released earlier this month, Shaky Hand has already been placed on multiple Spotify playlists. This tune tells the story of someone carelessly living their life, indulging in all of their vices, when they begin to struggle with the fear of responsibility and growing older. Shaky Hand, which was written by Justin and Nashville producer Darren King, is a song about someone taking a look at their life and asking tough questions about the decisions they are making and why. This alt-American country single is full of moxie with a sense of self-reflection and sets the tone for his upcoming project, slated to be released later this year.
About Justin Kaleb:
In the same vein as artists like the Turnpike Troubadours, Tyler Childers, and Jason Isbell, Alt-Americana country artist Justin Kaleb brings an element of truth-telling, blue-collar music that music fans can surely get behind.
Growing up in the foothills of the Arkansas Ozarks and now living in Nashville, his upbringing has truly influenced his music as he incorporates the story-telling aspect of Southern mountain regions and hill country. He’s been immerged in music his entire life as his immediate family, who are all musically inclined as well, encouraged him to begin experimenting with music, and since the age of 12, he has been playing shows.
His first record Homesick Blues, which surmounted over 50K streams on Spotify alone, was recorded down in the infamous Muscle Shoals, Alabama with the great Jimmy Nutt (Jimmy Buffett, Jason Isbell, American Aquarium) and Gary Nichols (The Steeldrivers). Since then, he signed his first publishing deal, played sold out venues with bands like The Steeldrivers, David Allen Coe, among others. He is an accomplished musician with releases already under his belt and has appeared on late night local show “Later With Jason Suel,” morning entertainment local show “Good Morning NWA,” and was most recently featured on “The Kelleigh Bannen Show” on Apple Music Country. With a sultry voice that radiates intensity, passion, soul and authenticity, this unconventional artist incorporates a mix of classic folk, Americana and outlaw country with an edge that is rivaled by several artists. He turns his struggles and triumphs in his life into his music and is gearing up for a breakthrough year.
