UK born slide guitarist and singer/songwriter K.K. Hammond recently released her single “Graveyard Blues” from her debut album (as The Curse of K.K. Hammond) Death Roll Blues set for release on March 31st 2023. Hammond takes her influence from the Delta Blues players of the 1930s, the Roots music of Appalachia and its ancestors, and some of the Metal music of her past.
Also attracted by Southern gothic horror, K.K. writes traditionally inspired Roots music with darker aspects, as we see on this new track.
Hammond cites her interest in guitar, Americana, and the Blues as coming from watching her father play Flamenco guitar growing up. Among her collection of resonator guitars is a Mule Resophonics and National Resophonic, her “absolute pride and joy.”
