Anyone Dig Colter Wall?

In my recent conversions to listening to any manner of outlaw-ish countrified blues/bluegrass/whatever music, my ramblings led me to this cat from Saskatchewan (Northern Montana!) with a killer baritone voice and some smoking finger-picking and songwriting.

If you’ve never listened to him, you should. This is a song called “Kate McCannon” and it’s one of the best murder ballads I have ever heard:

Also, the hauntingly beautiful cattle call inspired “Cowpoke” (Colter is apparently a real-live rancher when he’s not making music). I find this incredibly moving somehow:

My brother turned me on to him… lovely!

Yeah, he’s pretty dang good. Would love to catch him live somewhere.
