Paul Chesne: Wet Dog Man

Paul’s a singer song writer in the vein of Gram Parsons, Early Wilco era Jeff Tweedy, & Exile On Main Street era Rolling Stones. Singin’, dancing’, down on his knees, screamin’ to some empty bottle or some woman.
His backing band is solid, to say the least. Dutch (Lead Guitar), Steve Tegel (bass), & Johnny Niemann (keys), & Paxton (drums). Three of the Four are from LA favorites The Vacation.

Paul is playing in Los Angeles on Saturday July 28th. @ Safari Sam's with Mike Stinson & Dale Watson.

His Album is available on itunes

Jason Isbell: Dress Blues (live)

Jason Isbell

The Drive-By Truckers aren’t for everyone. What they do is really specific, and raw, and some listeners find even the ragtag way the albums are recorded too off-putting. Yet it’s no mistake that the Truckers have, on many occasions (and not just in their own press releases), been called The Best Rock & Roll Band in America. It bears mentioning, too, that many who don’t love the Truckers have admitted to falling for one or two of the band’s songs, and in nearly every case those songs were written by the band’s youngest member: a cocksure guitar player, singer and songwriter named Jason Isbell.
Check out his new album:
