I say “country artist” because that’s the easiest category to drop him in. In reality, he’s a combination of Gothic, dark country, blues, gospel….but in all, he makes some damn good music. Even the title of one of his albums “Exodus of the Deemed Unrighteous” is enough to give you the down-home chills. Check him out.
