    I dig this kid. Been listening to his stuff for about a year now.

    I hear more Ray Charles in him than anything - which is good. Not so much in the tone of his voice, but in the overall grove and tones of the two songs that have been posted so far. I'm no prog-snob, but I guess what doesn't keep my interest is that its incredibly simple music, with few changes, and predictable breaks. Granted, that's coming from a blues hound. But I feel like that thing has been done before.

    There is a lot of life in the performance.

    + 1 on JD McPherson and also check out People Gonna Talk by James Hunter. He does a Ray Charles/Sam Cooke vibe playing a LP Special

    This cat's really good, too. His vocals sound a lot like Big Sandy to me.

    I like the kid. During the dinner/interview section of his LFDH session he said that as a California kid in the '90s he was exposed to the hardest core Punk, the scariest Metal and the most violent Rap. That said, the most dangerous music for him to get into, from his perspective, was fifty-year-old R&B.

    That was great!

    Thanks for posting! I had never heard of him but love Live at Darryl's. Hall is the s#!% when it comes to a good groove, and his 80s schtick with Oates is not the worst music I've heard.

    How many gutarists does it take to change a ligtbulb? Just one.

    The rest stand around and talk about how they can do it better.

    Peace.

    Great stuff. I am glad there is a new generation putting their own stamp on roots music. It's all good.
