"Valley-reared sibs Kaylen and Kelly delight all with their ingrained talent. Pedigreed to the max — they are the progeny of country stars Tracey Brown and Randall Prescott and the grandchildren of music legends Joe Brown and Irwin Prescott — these kids are jaw-droppingly good." -From a segment called "Hot Ones" in Ottawa Magazine
- Fateema Sayani, Ottawa Magazine


"Simply amazing, Prescott (composed of Kaylen and Kelly) is an exciting addition to the acoustic pantheon, and watching their career develop over the years is sure to be a rewarding experience. Here we run into the futility of the written word in describing a musical moment, but Prescott’s performance at the Westboro Masonic Temple was, for all intents and purposes, perfect."
- G. Laing: Spirit of Rasputins


“Country music with a frequent edge. “My Saviour, My Sin”, the opening tribute to home and hearth,
showcases the duo’s vocal harmonies in a rocking Appalachian arrangement. The mandolin driven “Carryin’ Coal” spotlights Kelly’s distinctive, smoky voice. The two dip in everything from new country to the atmospheric closer, ”Southern Sound” – that’s a pile of star power locked into the young folks genes and they do their bloodline proud.” - Pat Langston, Ottawa Citizen


“Great production and I love the subtleties of it. Like Levon Helm, Blackie & The Rodeo Kings, Nickel Creek, and almost early Memphis sound. Not overdone anywhere or gimmicky. I’ll definitely play it.” - Tom Tompkins – Operations Mgr/Network Program Director: The Rush/The WolfWilliams Lake/Quesnel/100


“Radio friendly but still tasty! Very cool. I think this is a great album.
“Faster”...very soulful vocal – excellent ballad, “Southern Sound”...organ rocks...so does Kaylen’s vocal, “Mississippi Moon” – nice little semi-hidden down home lo-fi track.” - Bruce Lepere, No Fences Radio Show

Bio

Prescott: A sweet distillation of family tradition with an alternative sound   
Prescott is Kaylen and Kelly Prescott, a brother and sister duo, third generation musicians. They carry the tradition of performing through both sides of the family. Their young world was a revolving door of varied and talented musicians and songwriters, who came to ply their trade at their well renowned family recording studio. As children and grandchildren of musicians, they were part and parcels of the tour date life, rolling along in a tour bus, or streaking across the skies. It seems natural that they now embark on their own musical journey.

The Prescott sound is drawn from a wide range of musical influences. Their new CD called “Lakeside Sessions” is an impressive collection of songs textured with hillbilly, heartbreak, and love. Pooling their rich songwriting strengths and unique, beautiful harmonies, Prescott are performers who embody the beat of generations.

Their strong 2008 and 2009 performances at the Ottawa BluesFest opened the door for Kaylen and Kelly to go into the studio to create their first collaborative c.d., writing and co-writing all original tracks. Their debut album "Lakeside Sessions" is an impressive collection of songs textured with rock and roots, heartbreak and love. Pooling their rich songwriting strengths and unique, beautiful harmonies, Prescott embodies the beat of generations.
