Captain Kudzu - Cruel
Captain Kudzu is hard to place in any specific musical category. This is due to principle songwriter Jackson Gafford’s eclectic and unique approach to songwriting – he’s as well versed making loop based compositions and beats as he is in performing, and his music takes cues from everything from ambient pop to garage rock. Taking the form of either a solo loop based set or a full band with bassist Timothy Collier and drummer Abby Anderson, Captain Kudzu’s music jumps effortlessly between sparse and hazy, energetic and introspective, carefree and existential – all without losing its distinct catchiness.
Since relocating from Opelika, AL to Birmingham in 2017, Captain Kudzu has shared the stage with regional acts like Omni and Swarming Branch. Currently Captain Kudzu is working on their sophomore LP, “Arboretum” slated to release this summer.
