John Moreland Big Bad LuvIf you like your country true, honest and heartfelt, John Moreland could be your guy.

Fronting hardcore and punk bands before being lured to the lyricism of country and folk music, it was Steve Earle’s song Rich Man’s War that struck a powerful chord with Moreland, and along with the influences of Guy Clark and Townes Van Zandt, prompted him to pursue the music he now makes. Predominately a selfproduced and self-promoted artist, this is Moreland’s fourth solo album with a crew of hometown Tulsa players. Offering songs of love, faith and the human condition, Moreland is one of the great new songwriters of his generation.

Big Bad Luv is out now via 4AD/Remote Control.
