Grayson Capps Songbones available now. Word of this album had been circulating among Grayson Capps’ fans for years. Recorded in 2003–two years before his debut album “If You Knew My Mind”–this magical, stripped-down session features Grayson on acoustic guitar and his longtime friend Tom Marron on fiddle. Recorded at New Orleans’ 9th Street Pickin Parlor, Grayson let the tape roll, cutting the entire album in less than five hours. Appropriately titled “Songbones,” Grayson’s original renditions of songs like “Washboard Lisa,” “I Can’t Hear You,” “Slidell” and “Mermaid,” that have since become staples in his repertoire, are featured. Also included are rarities that have never been officially released like “Junior & The Old African Queen,” “Guitar” and “Psychic Channel Blues.” It’s a pristine recording that captures Grayson’s songwriting, voice and guitar-picking in all of its unadorned glory. “Songbones” is intimate, front porch music, honest, down-home and pure; all of the traits that make Grayson Capps one of the most important songwriters to emerge from the South in recent memory.
