The Passionate Listener

Sturgill Simpson is a seductive storyteller. He captivates the listener from the first line of a song. Simpson uses his baritone deftly; crafting phrasing that creates a shared sense of comfort and intimacy with the listener. Whether he sings about the vagaries of love, the pain of being broke, or the existential crisis of human existence, Simpson is entrancing.

His music is the 21st century nexus of Country, Rock, Blues – large parts B.B. King, Waylon Jennings, Clarence Carter, The Allman Brothers- and uniquely Sturgill Simpson.
