Album Review

J.D. Wilkes Slows Down (Just a Bit) for Solo Project

J.D Wilkes - Fire Dream

Grant, J. D. is an interesting dude.  I first stumbled on to him as a leader of an old-fashioned string band, The Dirt Daubers, on a roots music radio show.  After looking for the band's back catalog, I found that J. D. and the Dirt Daubers (including J. D.'s wife) had made a very good electric blues album called Wild Moon.  Then I went to You Tube to check out videos and found him playing a shirtless wild man in a psychobilly band.  Finally saw him live in Chapel Hill last Fall.  Very talented with some sort of graphic arts skills also.
