Kin Faux is a band of four talented musicians on a mission to put "western" back in country music. While they do pay tribute to country legends like Haggard, Jennings, and Cash, the heavy influence of the band comes from today's Texas music scene (i.e. Randy Rogers, Kevin Fowler, Cody Jinks, and Wade Bowen).
What you will experience at a "Kin Faux" show is a solid rhythm section providing a foundation for blistering guitar and fiddle solos. What you will NOT experience are skinny, glitter-jeans twerking to Pop 40 Country. So, put on your wranglers and two-stepping' boots, then come see what the buzz is all about!
Country singer Ben McPeak started performing professionally the day after he graduated high school, and has been at it ever since. McPeak performed full time at San Antonio’s former Fiesta Texas Opryland theme park (now Six Flags) while also fronting his own band, playing clubs and private shows. So, with many years of live show experience, writing sessions in Texas and Nashville, he decided it was time to combine his talents and record his debut album, Better Off, (Aug. 23, 2019)
On Better Off, McPeak wraps his rich baritone vocals around eight neo-traditionalist tracks, influenced by the ‘90s-era country he loves most. Among his touchstone artists are several who topped the charts then, including Garth Brooks, George Strait, Alan Jackson, and Keith Whitley. (Of course, Haggard, Jennings, Cash, and Twitty also make his list.)
The album was recorded at Benchmark Sound in the same Music Row building where Cash, Strait and many other top artists recorded under its Emerald Sound Studio name (Eddie Rabbitt tracked “I Love a Rainy Night” there). It was mixed and produced by Billy Decker at Westwood Studio, also in Nashville.
