Juni Habel – “Run dry”
-The fingerpicking in this track is really good. I appreciate the intimate recording style here that makes it feel like the listener is inside the song. The lead vocal is smooth and demands your attention. This is classic Americana and I’m happy to support it.
Dan Challis – “A Tale of Two Men”
-This is the kind of narrative folk music that most of us think of when we think of the genre Americana. It’s got shades of Marty Robbins and Townes Van Zandt. This is rich, authentic acoustic folk. It should make you feel something raw and timeless. The storyline speaks for itself so I won’t summarize it here. I’ll tell you this one gave me a chill… like I was out under that big sky in a deadly time of mythological American history.
CF Watkins – “The Tell”
-The energy of this track bounces around from a few different genres, but it’s enough Americana that I’m happy to put it here. Something about Watkins’ voice make me think of Kacey Musgraves. There’s a kind of optimism to this track that makes it lean in even pop directions. That said, what it lacks in lonesome old timey-ness it makes up for in a quality vocal and perfect countrified production.
