Go About Your Earthly Mission


Summoning the spirit of Waylon Jennings, the voice of Johnny Cash and citing the likes of Townes Van Zandt and Hank Williams as inspiration, at just 22 years of age, Canadian singer-songwriter Colter Wall is already the complete package. Following the 2015 maxi-EP ' Imaginary Appalachia', this year's self-titled LP really is one to track down - it's a stunningly accomplished debut.

End of year list material for sure.

I've got the "Imaginary Appalachia" album and he has some great studio session videos (e.g. Brewery Sessions) on Youtube. "Sleeping on the Blacktop" is on the soundtrack of a great film, Hell or High Water*.

I didn't know about this new album, so thanks for that.

(*worth checking for some other Americana acts)

22 going on 52 by the sound of him. From what you all say he's going to be big.

What a voice! Straight out of the pages of classic country. Another gem to follow-up. Cheers!
