Chad Elliott - Wreck And Ruin
Chad Elliott is a veteran singer/songwriter who writes smooth, feel good songs ranging from soulful drinking songs to upbeast road-tunes to down and dirty tunes worthy of Ray Wylie Hubbard. His vocals on Wreck And Ruin often remind me of Dave Alvin. The songs are set in some sort of Dystopic Rural landscape, but like the best blues, there's always plenty of hope and strength to be found if you know where to look.
I'm adding "Matters Of The Broken Heart," "Swear I Could," "Homefire Blues," "Wreck And Ruin," and "Walkin' Shoes Blues" to rotation.
