GRAYSON CAPPS GRAYSON CAPPS VOLUME 1 200g D2D LP
Recorded At Blue Heaven Studios During Blues Masters at the Crossroads 2010!
200g Vinyl Cut By Kevin Gray , Engineered by Katsu Naito & Pressed at Quality Record Pressings!
Having drawn comparisons to the likes of Tom Waits, Townes Van Zandt and Drive
By Truckers, to name but a few, Grayson Capps proves an artist equally singular
in vision as those to whom he’s compared. He doesn’t always paint the prettiest
pictures or offer a gleaming white smile, but he does reach down deep to remind
us of our own humanity. Capps descends from the celebrated American Southern
literary tradition and his songs deal with the South and the idiosyncrasies of
its people, landscapes and tempos.
His backing band, The Lost Cause Minstrels, comprises some of the finest players
on today’s Gulf Coast music scene, including Corky Hughes on guitar, Chris Spies
on keys, Christian Grizzard on bass and John Milham on drums.
"...Grayson Capps is alive and well and slowly building one of the most phenomenal
songbooks in America today. If ever there were a cat primed to pick up where
Lowell George and John Prine have left off, it’s Capps." — Jambase
