Tom Dews

BandFolkBlues

Gritty original vocals from a lived-in voice surrounded by deft acoustic guitar and haunting harmonica; spine-chilling slide guitar coming from a National. It's an authentic sound that has its roots in the deep south, but reaches way beyond. It's grounded but transcendent, sparse but powerful.
