Austin’s Bakbonz is an up and coming masterpiece of soul R&B musical collaboration. One half of the duo is Kelly Doze, a locally renowned blues-soul singer-songwriter with a couple of albums under her belt and appearances on tracks from the likes of Ray Prim, Zeale, and D.O.S. Doze’s complementary collaborator is drummer/singer Les Fisher, whose talents have earned him spots onstage alongside Gary Clark Jr, Bob Schneider and Patti Labelle. Joining forces seems like a pretty good idea at this point, right? Luckily for us listeners, Doze and Fisher have teamed up to form Bakbonz (pronounced “back bones”) and are set to release their debut album Worth the Wait tonight at the One 2 One Bar. Worth the Wait‘s thirteen tracks showcase Fisher and Doze’s talents across a variety of sonic textures, but you can end the wait right now with a slammer of an R&B single – “Twisted Love”.
