Guthrie Kennard

“With a voice that recalls Bob Dylan and Keith Richards, Kennard
spins his tales of rural disaffection against a backdrop of rough-hewed

to the Hill Country, and the slow country songs sound like a drive on
patchy, paved roads that lead to all sorts of interesting places.”
— Darryl Smyers, Dallas Observer
