Who Is Captain Kudzu?

Captain Kudzu, formerly a duo project of Jackson Gafford and a close friend, has now become Gafford’s stage name for his independent work as a producer, multi-instrumentalist, band leader, and singer-songwriter. An Opelika, AL native, Gafford recently finished recording his first EP "The Shady Glenn EP" and released it in October 2016.

Recently Captain Kudzu has specialized in a one man band approach. Going to a Captain Kudzu show you’ll see everything from swelling ambient loops, to folk music, to fuzzed out psyche rock in a relatively short time span.

Currently Captain Kudzu is in the process of setting up a studio and promoting a debut EP, building a website, and filming videos and live shows so there is much, much more to come from this group of weirdos from Alabama.
