Wall’s dusty baritone voice leads the way, sounding like he’s already lived a full lifetime on the range (he’s only 25). On his self-produced third album of cowboy tracks and Western tales, he preserves and revives the songs of the Wild West with a tip of the hat to artists like Marty Robbins and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott. With classic country sounds of steel and acoustic guitars, fiddle, and a sure and steady rhythm, Wall sings with sincere and intense conviction songs old and new. Enjoy the ride.
Western Swing & Waltzes and other Punchy Songs by Colter Wall is out Friday August 28 via Thirty Tigers.
