Daytrotter Session

LISTEN to Daytrotter session here.   Includes stripped down versions of: State I’m In O Child Anyone Red Red Rose Marvelous   Thanks to Rodrigo, Ryan and Kyle who played on this session.


“In country music, there are so many sad songs and not enough bleak songs. This Nashville outsider takes some gutsy steps toward the latter, as if scoring a Cormac McCarthy novel. Halfway through his latest album he sings, “Joy’s a-coming.” Don’t believe him.” – Chris Richards – Washington Post‘s Essential Albums:

Vivian Girls Review at The Talkhouse

Cassie Grzymkowski from The Babies/ Vivian Girls talks Ancestor for The Talkhouse: 

Who Is Stone Jack Jones?

Stephen Deusener’s in depth interview for eMusic/Wondering Sound.  

Another fellow traveler enjoying the trip.

“Ancestor is one of the most extraordinary and unusual records I have listened to so far this year. It’s mountain music, but it’s modern mountain music. The songs are still about love and loss, but the sound evokes a dreamy opiate-induced haze rather than a whiskey-fueled blues bender.” – Now This Sound Is Brave

The Times picks “Black Coal” as an Essential Track.
