Kolton Moore & the Clever Few might be one of the most underrated bands in all of country music.
They don’t get out on the road and tour too much, or have some massive following on social media, but the proof is on the music; these guys are good.
If you’re not familiar with their music, then their brand new single “My Heart You’ll Tend,” which seemingly came out of nowhere today, is the perfect place to start.
A beautiful love song for Moore’s wife, with a driving beat and vivid lyricism that takes you back, without too much detail, through their relationship to how they ended up where they are now.
An avid sportsman whose first loves are his family and the outdoors, Moore is a spectacular songwriter, and when he finds the time to make new music, you know it’s going to be good. So without further ado, here is Kolton Moore & the Clever Few’s first single since 2021, “My Heart You’ll Tend.”
Kolton Moore & the Clever Few were a staple on the Texas scene between 2012 and 2016, amassing a massive, young following with their electric live shows and the spectacular music throughout the two full length albums and two EPs released during that timespan.
As happens with any band, a time came where everyone had to decide if they wanted to keep growing the band or take a different path, and unfortunately the result was a five year hiatus.
Now the band is back together, releasing new music on occasion and playing some shows here and there, mostly around the Texas scene.
But if you aren’t familiar with their music, especially from the early days, you’re really missing out. Composed of frontman Kolton Moore, guitar slinger Ryan Wilcox, Aaron Dowd on drums, Ricky Harris keeping tempo on the bass, and Ace Crayton on piano/keyboard, Kolton Moore & the Clever Few is an awesome cast of musicians, and it shows in their music.
If you like what you heard with their latest single “My Heart You’ll Tend,” check out a few of my favorites from the band’s pre-hiatus days.
