There's a scene in the recent Jeff Bridges movie Crazy Heart, where Bridge's character, the fictional country singer Bad Blake, explains that his songs come "from life, unfortunately." From the first notes of this album, it's clear that Grayson Capps songs come from a similar place. On his album Wail and Ride, he tells stories about ordinary people in a style influenced by Townes Van Zandt, John Prine, and Little Feat. The songs range from fast paced country rock and roll to barroom blues and stark acoustic ballads. He sings in a whiskey-soaked, weary voice and when he sings lines like "I need one more day to rise above this hell," he sings with such power that you believe him. With his sincere, gravelly voice and terrific songs about the weary travels and struggles of ordinary people, Grayson Capps is one of the most talented singer/songwriters in Americana roots music today, and this album is a great introduction to his music.
