The Enemy Line encompasses the sounds of classic country, rock, and modern country. They are vocally led by the brother and sister duo, Kurt Stone and Kymee Dawn, who were raised on country music. They are backed on drums by the epic rhythm of Cody Martinez, who transitioned from the rock/metal world. T.E.L. is passionate about all genres of music and you can hear it in their writing as well as their live performance. When they came together in the summer of 2016, they were given an opportunity to open for David Lee Murphy and Uncle Kracker at a Christmas party for the local radio station, and from there have continued to grow as a band. They have since been invited to Nashville, Tn to play CMA fest in 2019 and various other festivals.

musician, producer, and voice over artist.
Pickin’runs in the family.
I had a cousin (Herman Alvey) that was a champion fiddle player that played for Minnie Pearl and Grandpa Jones.
Got my first guitar at age 5. I would sit for hours sometimes in a 1960 Ford falcon, trying to figure out how to play it. Played in many bands over the years. Opened shows for too many headliners to mention. Have played hotels, bars, dance halls,
And anywhere they would pay us to play. Some of my influences would be Chet Atkins, Jethro Burns, Don Reno, and Vassar Clements. I also played with Kitty Wells, and Johnny Wright. They treated me as one of the family. My family was also into trucking. In between gigs, I always had a truck sitting around that I could put to use in order to pay bills. I guess it’s a “cowboy” thing! I intend to keep on playing music till I’m no longer able. Hopefully a long, long time! God bless America!
Growing up in Louisville, KY, I was exposed to some wonderful guitarists and musicians in the 60's & 70's. Barry King's name came up frequently in conversations with musician friends, he was this mysterious legendary figure that had already played with Charlie Daniels & Billy Cox of band of Gypsies. Unfortunately, I moved out of Louisville in the late 70's and never got to meet him till a few years later. We finally got to play together a few years back, it was a very enjoyable experience."
Barry is a wonderful guitarist, has great chops, beautiful tone, the stuff we guitarists all strive for. Barry is also a fine writer and has the ability to convey his lyrics in his own and honest way. Barry's "Woodstock (Every Time An Old Rock Star Dies)" strikes a chord with me on several levels. Woodstock, the festival, was an influence on my generation through the film and the album. Barry is one of the lucky people that attended the festival, I can only imagine the impact it made of him! Barry's story is similar to many of us that aspired to play in a rock n' roll band, especially us that remember Woodstock. It's true, every time one of our heroes passes on, it makes us realize of that life is but a vapor. Barry does a wonderful job conveying his story, which in many ways is our own." --Greg Martin - The Kentucky HeadHunters
Referring to the song, "Woodstock (Every Time An Old Rock Star Dies)":
"What an incredible song Barry, man! What an incredible song, man... that's all I've got to say." --Billy Cox - Jimi Hendrix's Band of Gypsys
"The song, "Woodstock (Every Time An Old Rock Star Dies)" is written by an exceptionally talented musician, Barry King. This is a great song about one of the most important musical events of the 20th century: it captures the essence of what the festival was all about." --Taz DiGregorio - Charlie Daniels Band
New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers
Stony Plain Records 2020
Review by David Bowling
There are super groups and then there is the little super group that can and did.
Back in 2007; some what under appreciated blues and roots musicians Charlie Musselwhite, Luther Dickinson, Cody Dickinson, Alvin Youngblood, and Jimbo Mathis gathered at Jim Dickinson’s ranch for a few days and nights of recording music. They simply sat in a circle and played a couple originals and some classic blues songs while the tapes ran. And so the New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers were born, but not for a while.
Luther Dickinson passed away and the tapes sat on the shelf for over a decade. They have now been resurrected and cleaned up and released as Volume 1, which means there is a second volume on the horizon, which given the quality of this release is good news.
The production is impeccable given the primitive nature of the recording sessions. Each instrument is distinct and the songs have a flow from one to the other. It is also presented as a very intimate release but does not intrude on the quality of the music.
Musselwhite is a superior harp player and he demonstrates his skill on “Blues Don’t Worry Me” and “Strange Land,” which are blues shuffles. He plays off Jim Dickinson’s piano melodies.
They are on very solid ground when they turn to older blues tunes. Charley Patton’s “Pony Blues” had great slide guitar by Hart, as does the Mississippi Sheiks “Stop And Listen Blues.” “Come On Down To My House” is presented as a barrelhouse blues piece curtesy of Jim Dickinson. They also transform Hendrix’s “Stone Free.”
The New Moon Jelly Roll Freedom Rockers manage to not only create good music but seem to be having fun at the same time. The real good news is there is more to come.
