Music: Rod Picott

One spin through Fortune, Rod Picott’s latest album, will inspire any number of referential name-checks and stylistic comparisons, from the storytelling prowess of Townes Van Zandt and Guy Clark to the passionate-soul reflection of Tom Waits and Bob Dylan. (For those who keep track of such things, the album’s powerfully affecting guitar work is provided by Will Kimbrough.)

But even a casual glance at Picott’s biography reveals an equal amount of real-life, physical connections to some of the most influential figures in the Americana/Folk scene and is solid proof of Picott’s patiently tenacious, whatever-it-takes approach to his own career. Read more about Picott in this week's Sound Advice.


See Rod Picott with Mark Becknell Wednesday at Southgate House Revival (Revival Room). More info/tickets: southgatehouse.com.
