Son Volt

Jay Farrar was in a band with Jeff Tweety called Uncle Tupelo. When the band broke up, Jeff started Wilco and Jay started Son Volt. I’m sure Wilco is the band you’ve heard of, but Son Volt deserves a listen, too. Problem is Son Volt is another band, like The Jayhawks or Kim Richey or Cowboy Junkies, lost in a radio world without rock and roll in all it’s varied, ragged glory. Fact is, great rock bands like The Eagles would get lost in today’s music hierarchy.

Give Son Volt a listen. It ain’t country, but that’s what they call it nowadays.
