Rayland Baxter – Feathers & Fishooks

  • October 17, 2012

The son of acclaimed pedal steel guitarist Bucky Baxter (Ryan Adams, Bob Dylan, Steve Earle), Rayland Baxter, has released his excellent debut Feathers & Fishhooks – a solid collection of folk tunes and laidback country-rockers. Ever since the first play, Feathers & Fishhooks has been on heavy rotation with its mastery of Americana styles and talented instrumentation including six string fingerpicking, pedal steel, accordion, and vocals. All of this is grounded by Baxter’s captivating narrative storytelling and catchy hooks. Notable tracks include “Marjoria”, “Willy’s Song”, “Driveway Melody”, and “Tell Me Lover.” Feathers & Fishhooks is a wonderful album that grows a little more with each new listen. – Written by JFelton
