Not sure if this guy would be considered a lesser known



good stuff edgar...mississippi delta...talk about american roots music....thats the foundation rock n roll was built on...what a place what a time think of all the great artist, that came from there in the early to mid twentieth century....but probably barely make enough to eat..lots of blind artist too.. i wonder if music was a carrier of last resort for these people...ronnie

I LOVE threads like this.... I'm always on the look-out for new music.


That Lucille Boggs one has gone into my favourites. What a shame she's no longer with us. I'll bet she provided her family with years of wonderful songs.

Garrison Starr is one of my favourite songwriters. She was on Geffen in the 90s, and dropped after a dispute. She's been independent for about ten years now.


Jay Nash is another. They did a few performances together for Sun Studio Sessions, as well as their solo work, and tours together. They also played together with The North La Brea All-Star Conquistadors (with Gabriel Mann, a friend of mine, and Adrianne).


I'm quite fond of Garrison's "Inside Out," and "Beautiful In Los Angeles" (you may have heard the latter on The Hills, for all you fans...).
