I’ve decided to do something a bit different in the coming weeks and share some of my favorite “alt-country” and Americana artists who tend to fly under the radar.
First up is “The Last Of The Full-Grown Men”, Webb Wilder. The Character of Webb Wilder was originally invented for a short film about a backwoods private detective who fell out of the ’50s and happened to also be a musician. He decided to hang onto the personna, and has had a career as a musician since the mid-1980s. Here’s one of his tunes that got a tiny bit of airplay on music video channels. A tongue-in-cheek little number called “Human Cannonball”… Enjoy!
And here’s a smokin’ live version of the Big Joe Williams blues classic “Baby Please Don’t Go”:
So there’s a little sample of an artist you may not have heard of. I’ll have another one next week. See ya then! – Bobbo 🙂
