Grayson Capps Wail & Ride available now! Born of the Southern literary tradition, Capps possesses a profound poetic wisdom and marries it to steamy front-porch blues and open road Americana. He calls to mind comparisons to Townes Van Zandt, JJ Cale and Steve Earle, but clearly has the making of a singular, iconoclastic talent in his own right. His debut album, If You Knew My Mind, was produced by Trina Shoemaker whose resume includes Sheryl Crow, Queens of the Stone Age and Whiskeytown, among others. Capps husky, whiskey-soaked vocals bring to life the down, but never out, characters who reside in his songs. Greasy slide riffs and finger picked steel guitar create the foundation for stomp-on-the-floorboard grooves, sanctified funk, earth grown soul and gospel refrains. This is music of the South, written on the outskirts of New Orleans and as real as a deep breath of bayou air.
