T Ferrell -- Populist Alt-Country from the Unlikeliest of Places
When he's not practicing law in the Pentagon, Taylor Ferrell writes and performs anti-establishment alt-country tunes. His populist themes and gritty stories channel Woody Guthrie, Bruce Springsteen, and Steve Earle. On his debut album, Jesus Year, Ferrell weaves whiskey-soaked tales of Mississippi working class heroes doing battle with corrupt preachers, man-eating vultures, and Confederate Generals. Sonically, Ferrell’s sound, filled with Telecasters, steel guitars, and fiddles looks to alt-country pioneers Uncle Tupelo and early 70s Rolling Stones.
