Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

With Billy Gibbons being involved, you just have to know that there is going to be some good sounds and good musicianship involved. Its nice to have a legend helping you get the tracks down, and having his input to make it sound good. Kind of bluesy and Folky throughout the album, and the recording is not too shabby either. He has shared the stages with quite a few big name artists in the Jam Band Community as well as opening shows for Lynyrd Skynyrd and The Allman Brothers. I think this is a testament to how well respected he is in the music community. He has some soul, grit, honky tonk, and just a little bit of everything to spread around on the album. I really liked tracks 6, 7, and 10, with #10 being the best on the album in my opinion.
