"Write about what you know, and the rest will write itself," as the adage goes.
Few could have guessed that such an intimate lover's tease could foster the catchy indie jangles that have made a name for Petticoat, Petticoat. Lyrically, many of the songs are love letters between long time sweethearts Dickie Haydon and Kristin Messina. Others speak of life changes, or their hometown of Lexington, Kentucky acting as their muse. The core of Petticoat, Petticoat is the duo of Haydon & Messina; highly autobiographical singer/songwriters that are easily accessible to fans of various genres. Working as a collective, these two, with the help of close friends, enjoy collaborating on anything from ideas on a whim to finished products. The very first words of their debut full-length album, "Every Mother's Child," dictates, "The easiest songs are the most beautiful ones..." and it's this philosophy, of simplicity breeding elegance, that creates their uniquely catchy sound.
