The Artist: LA-based folk-soul brother crash
The Album: Hardly Criminal, out May 6.
Fun Fact: The falsetto-wielding New Orleans transplant has had many interesting side careers — he’s sung for Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes and fronted the LA rock band Deadly Syndrome. He also used to do P.A. work, and served as Johnny Knoxville’s assistant on the Dukes Of Hazzard movie.
Songwriter Says: “I like those ideas: country-fried soul, slacker-crooner, all kinds of cool. Would you call this slacker folk? Man, it would be cool if you did.”
