“Throughout his spare, acoustic self-titled debut, Wall spins tales of murder, lost love and working class politics with all the pretension of a wannabe dust bowler and the unfettered confidence of the real deal” (Sony). Produced by Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Chris Stapleton, Lindi Ortega, Corb Lund), the music is stripped to its bare bones, gritty and raw. Rolling Stone described his voice as “a boomy baritone pitched between Johnny Cash and a smoke-cured Kris Kristofferson,” and indeed his deep voice and beautiful guitar playing make for a dark narrative in a troubadour tradition across 11 tracks. Wall’s record is a rare and remarkable debut.
