Singer/Songwriter Kem Watts and her band, Kem and the Pistols, are coming from Austin, Texas, to perform a house concert at Uncle Bill’s Music Barn on April 28th. Kem is another featured musician playing at the Barn who grew up in Lubbock.
Austin singer-songwriter Kem Watts grew up in Lubbock, following the family musical heritage of her father, Dennis Watts, and her brother, Dary Watts. Kem says, “I was raised in Lubbock, Texas, and grew up in a family of musicians. I have been singing since I was a young girl. However, I got a late start in picking up the guitar. I first began writing songs acappella in my early 20’s shortly after moving to Austin, Texas. I had things to express so I figured I better get with the program and learn how to play an instrument so that I could get my point across the way I heard the melodies in my head. I picked up the guitar and taught myself to play in 2006 and haven’t stopped yet. I have many mentors and friends that continue to guide and support me along the way, and for that I am blessed! I write about nature, love, life, and I have been told by many people that my songs tell a story! I just do what comes from the heart and there is nothing better than sharing music with your friends. I hope you enjoy!”
Kem tours Texas three times a year and has also toured Quebec with her good singer-songwriter friend, Emilie Clepper. Kem has shared the stage with many personal friends, including Earl Poole Ball, Monty Montgomery, John Inmon, Ponty Bone, Van Wilks, Paul McLaughlin, Dale Watson, and more. Kem and her four-piece band, Kem and the Pistols, perform regularly in Austin. You’ll also often find Kem performing at various musical festivals. Drop on by for a great show!
