Gnawbone

You ever just fall in love with an artist’s music the very first time you heard them play? Such was the case with the music of Will Scott. From the very first song on his CD, “Jack’s Defeat Creek,” I was hooked in. But when the second track kicked it, I turned the volume up to eleven. The swampy rock of “Gnawbone” grabbed me by the short hairs and never let go.

Not only is Will Scott a great singer and songwriter, he is also one more fine guitar player. I mean, the songs just keep gettin’ better and better. “Make Her Love Me” sports an infectious groove of southern swamp boogie and “Lazy Summertime” is exactly what the title suggests, a laid back, hazy days of summer slice of true Americana.

The lyrics are so real. Great songs like “Country Soil” an the countryfied “Louisiana Lullaby” tell stories drawn straight from real life. I always like to say “keep it real” a lot. Well, guess what? Will Scott keeps it real baby.

I love the groove on “Mother May I” and the fingerpicking of “Stain Letter.” Speaking of grooves, “Long Time Since” boasts its own unique and excellent groove. “Amen Corner” closes out the set in style, beginning with church organ and moving into a haunting groove.

It’s been a while since an artist captivated my attention the way Will Scott has done. In this day of cookie-cutter country pop, boring Top 40 and sometimes talentless indie artists, it is indeed a breath of fresh air to hear something so real, so honest, from an independent artist. Bravo.

Blocked air passages can cause those with sleep apnea to stop breathing and wake up hundreds of times throughout the course of a night, and they are usually unable to recall doing so the next morning. Besides preventing a person from feeling well-rested, the poor sleep quality caused by loud, chronic snoring can lead to cardiovascular problems, an increased chance of having metabolic syndrome and accidents associated with sleep deprivation. ugg boots clearance uggs clearance
