#112 John Edward Baumann – Bible Belt

Sweet, sweet country music. Real proper barroom blues. From out of Austin, Texas comes John Edward Baumann, a man of witty lyrics, killer hooks, and impressive facial hair. His debut EP West Texas Vernacular takes us inside the world he grew up in, from the loners of ‘Potter County’ to the small-town fundamentalists of ‘Bible Belt’. It’s an earnest, honest record, with no hint of over-production or false stylising. Saddle up.
