Jayson Bales' recent album, Broken Furniture. Listening to Bales's songs on cdbaby.com, I get the distinct feeling that he'll pick up new friends in Shreveport. His music is smart country-folk rock. With witty lyrics and comfortable melodies, the mid-tempo music is easy on the ears.
Catch him solo at Fairfield Studios Th, June 16, at 7 pm, as part of the House Concert series. It's a great gig; music, sandwiches and beverages, comfortable chairs and pristine acoustics - and it's all happening early. Highly recommended, based on my sampling. Your host is the terrific owner, Dana McCommon, as well as Alan Dyson and friends from Red River Radio, KDAQ. More info: 220-0400. Or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
And there's a bonus this week: the art of Rebecca Nesbitt will be on display. Please see more below.
