Folk, blues, country and rock are all grist to the mill of Otis Gibbs. John Fullbright cites Townes Van Zandt and Mickey Newbury as inspirations
Folk, blues, country and rock are all grist to the mill of US singer-songwriter Otis Gibbs, whose grittily lived-in voice and rough-hewn yet poetic balladry bespeak both his well-travelled life-story and determined independence of spirit - characteristics compellingly captured on his 2012 album Harder Than Hammered Hell.
Oklahoma's John Fullbright, who cites Townes Van Zandt, Mickey Newbury and Randy Newman among his formative inspirations, is already emerging as a worthy successor to such greats, matching meticulously skilled songcraft with an artfully diverse stylistic palette.
