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 need cocksure rock & roll swagger to be hit people right in their souls of musical love. 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 this week for a session, and whether it was the plaintive and raw energy of Bhiman's voice or the soulful tones of his guitar, he tapped into the core of what makes us love Nebraska
-era Springsteen and Tea for the Tillerman
-era Cat Stevens. We can't wait to share this session with you but hopefully these photos can hold you over til that day arrives.
