Featured Musician: Townes Van Zandt

No comments

If I were to picture the ideal archetype for country music, the answer would always be Townes Van Zandt. 

The first song I heard him play was Waiting Around To Die. Once I heard him, I knew he represented something I always was looking for.

You can read about my journey here.  

As Townes’ released more material, he never really diverged from the simple and understated sound he had perfected. Even as his hard living took a toll on his voice, he never lost his charm.

His recordings from the 1960s-70s are unparalleled art.
