DIGNEY FIGNUS

Trouble on the Levee

2006-02-15

This is a Concept CD that takes place back in 1927 {the first time the Levee's broke} and flooded the Crescent City. It tells the story of Johnnie Boudreaux & how a man "too good lookin' for his own good" could live himself to death and still manage to laugh at his own funeral, This CD is pure acoustic magic from a man who in the 1980's led the Punk band the Spikes. His vocals & story telling abilities fall somewhere between Marc Cohn and John Fogerty, but with a name like Digney he remains an original. Since Digney Fignus has reinvented himself in 2006 I think he could be considered one of the best new artists to watch for this year. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
