The University of South Alabama’s Independent Music Collective is bringing another season to a close with an intimate performance by singer-songwriter Rod Picott. This prolific artist is touring in support of his new album “Out Past the Wires” and its companion short story collection.
Picott uses this 22-song album to continue his ongoing musical focus on “the lives of working people and the losses, defeats and small victories that can come hard won in a calloused world.” Picott’s new album also includes the electric guitar talents of Mobile native Will Kimbrough.
“Out Past the Wires” is reminder of a time when alt. country was truly alternative. Picott’s musical versatility shines throughout this album. “Primer Gray” and “Be My Bonnie” soothe with wistful, embracing folk. “Take Home Pay” and “Coal” are raucous country rock masterworks. Picott’s vocals serve as the album’s connecting thread. His warm, buttery vocals are the perfect conduit for his musical poetry.
