Stewart Pack's New Band Is Packed With Local Talent

Longtime singer/songwriter recruits musicians for new project Stewart Pack and the Silent Kays

Local singer/songwriter Stewart Pack, formerly of Pegclimber, the 1-900s, and Dinky Doo, has teamed up with a handful of other Knoxville music luminaries—including Knathan Halliburton of the Leningrads and former V-Roys drummer Jeff Bills—for a new project called Stewart Pack and the Silent Kays.

"The set is a mix of mostly Stewart's songs with a few of mine mixed in for texture and is a bit of a departure for Stewart—acoustic guitars and piano and three-part harmonies a la the Band," Halliburton writes in an e-mail.

The line-up includes Pack on guitar and vocals, Halliburton on guitar, Spencer Corden on piano, Greg Dunn on bass, and Bills on drums. The group is currently recording a three-song demo and has shows lined up at Preservation Pub on Saturday, Aug. 8, and Barley's Taproom on Thursday, Aug. 20.
