ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Artist: Preacher Boy

Current Release: "Demanding To Be Next"

Record Label: Coast Road Records

Musical Style: Alt Blues. Raw vocals, lyrical poetry, singular National Resophonic playing.

Hometown: California

Points of Note: "Demanding To Be Next" is Preacher Boy's fifth album, and his first solo acoustic disc. Whether performing solo acoustic, in duo format, or with full band, there is no mistaking the singular sound of Preacher Boy, who—with his debut on Blind Pig Records in 1995—became one of the very first modern artists to be classified as Alternative Blues. Since then, Preacher Boy has continued to defy easy categorization, while at the same time racking up accolades from the likes of Rolling Stone, Blues Revue, Sing Out and more, not to mention from legends like Charlie Musselwhite. 6 albums and nearly 20 years later, Preacher Boy continues to both honor and reimagine the country blues tradition, and with not one, not two, but three new albums slated for release this year, the sound of the National Blues slides on...

Press Quotes:

"Demanding To Be Next demands attention instantly. On the tender opener 'A Little Better When It Rains,' Watkins blends fingerpicking and slide. His voice, a cross between those of Kelly Joe Phelps and Tom Waits, has an otherworldly quality that makes him sound like no one else and suits his quirky songs well. Flatpicked folk song 'Whistleman' packs detailed, offbeat imagery that recalls Dylan's best. Its ominous feeling gets under your skin, setting you up for the album's only cover a few tracks later, a strong reading of Son House's 'Death Letter.'"
Blues Revue

"Preacher Boy crosses the traditional country blues of haunted legends like Robert Johnson and Son House with a modern, rock-influenced perspective similar to Jon Spencer or Jack White of The White Stripes, branding the sound with his own distinctive mark."
