while attending a cookout at Not Jack Kerouac’s venice abode yesterday i was introduced to a phenomenal north carolina singer/songwriter working the twang — thad cockrell. i hate to make comparisons, but imagine the quieter moments of a young whiskeytown-era ryan adams sans hubris.
further whiskeytown comparisons will surely be made with the recent release of thad and caitlin cary’s joint duets album “begonias.”
plans to tour are in the works, one can only hope some west coast dates are in the mix.
spinning: thad cockrell – warmth & beauty
