Loved Whiskeytown, especially 'Stranger's Almanac',that was a great one.I know some writers used to pull his chain by calling him Bryan Adams which might explain some of that attitude.Another band that has caught my ear lately is 'The War on Drugs'.Longer songs but I like where he comes from...a lot.If you like Neil's 'Ragged glory', this should hit about the same spot.This is one of my favorite artists though. I’m currently reading a second biography on him “Waiting to Derail”. ( I already read “Losering”).
I love singer songwriter music - grew up listening to Joni Mitchell, Cat Stevens and Neil Young - (still listen) . Ryan Adams is someone I discovered when he fronted Whiskeytown back in the late 1990’s. He is a drama addicted, mercurial genius brat, but man can he write some beautiful songs.
