NASHVILLE, TENN. – Nashville based Alt-Americana country artist Justin Kaleb is venturing out into a “no fences” approach and showing off his laidback, carefree style in his new single Shaky Hand. This song is available on all digital streaming platforms including Spotify, Apple Music, and more.
Justin takes a captivating approach to a universal experience in Shaky Hand. His latest single tells the story of someone carelessly living out their life, freely indulging in all of their vices. When they start to struggle with the fear of responsibility and growing older, they begin to take a look at their life and start to question their choices. This is a song about taking a look at yourself and your life and asking tough questions about the decisions you are making and why. “We all have our vices, and some are more harmful than others,” Justin says. “For me, this song is a friendly reminder to keep mine in check and make sure I am staying on the right path for myself.”
Written by Justin and Nashville producer Darren King, Shaky Hand delves into an alt-Americana, folk-country sound. This boot tappin’ country single is full of moxie with a sense of self-reflection that the artist was excited to explore. “I think everyone can relate to having to take a step back and look at your life from a new perspective. Everyone has to ask themselves tough questions to be able to grow and mature as a person, and I think that is the essence of Shaky Hand. When he was in the studio recording, he wanted the feel and progression of the song to “represent the character’s descent into that mindset, and then ending the song with an acapella 3-part blood harmony.” With an acoustic folk guitar element blending with Justin’s soulful, raspy vocals, this single 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.
