I’ve written about one of the participants, Jason Myles Goss, here at Popdose before. His album, Radio Dial, was one of my favorite albums of 2012. I said that songs like “Home,” “Black Lights” and “Hospital Shirt” put him in “the same continuum of literate, acoustic-driven singer-songwriters that includes not only [Josh] Ritter, but also Paul Simon, Jackson Browne, and Lucinda Williams.”
I’m pleased to report that the other three men involved in the tour are also exceptionally talented. Dean Fields has a little of the pedal steel twang of Ryan Adams. Andy Zipf’s tenor vocals and reverb-heavy production offers a modern take on ‘70s AM soft-rock. The fourth member is Eliot Bronson, who has won songwriting Contest at MerleFest and Eddie Owen Presents.
Please download the sampler — because how can you turn down free music? — and, if you like the music and live anywhere near where they’re playing, go and see them. This way, the tour will be successful and they’ll be able to book a night in my town.
