Now Playing: Bhi Bhiman's Charming Baeble HQ Sesh

Strip away flashy production tricks and distracting stylistic flourishes and great music is a great melody and, if there are vocals, a distinct and powerful voice. You don't necessarily need cocksure rock and roll swagger to hit people right in their souls. And with a guitar, a pianist, and a dude rocking the cajon, Bhi Bhiman bowled us over with everything Americana folk-rock can be but with a perspective we rarely see in the genre.

The Missouri native stopped by our offices for a session recently, bringing three songs from his recently released album Rhythm and Reason and humorous yet poignant insight into his craft. For instance, did you know Death (personified...the guy with the scythe) is horribly misunderstood? He's just doing his job..."hauling in the bodies, harvesting the grief". But he needs a friend too. Everybody needs a friend. Bhi also talks about how larger social issues play into his music. "I want to write about a social issue sometimes...but I don't want to ram my idea down people's throats", Bhiman explains. "I try to entertain first and foremost. If they learn something, great. But really, it just has to be entertaining." It totally is. Give our newest session a spin and find out for yourself.
