Joseph Parsons :: Digging For Rays


Alsof de duivel hem op de hielen zit, zo productief is de inmiddels al een decennium in Duitsland wonende Amerikaan Joseph Parsons. Nu is het, na platen met Hardpan, US Rails, Parsons Thibaud en 4 Way Street, weer tijd voor een CD met zijn eigen band. Digging For Rays is Parsons op zijn best, een unieke mix van Americana, Britse folk en Noord-Europese introspectie. Met name Wide Awake, Come Around en Today zijn drie van de allerbeste nummers die hij geschreven heeft; Bob Dylan ontmoet Richard Thompson. Prachtmuziek.

The backdrop of Joseph Parsons is a storied life history of living on edges. The deep American and world roots he has have influenced his ever-evolving musical storyline. Few, if any, songwriters have seen the world as Parsons has. From deep loves to being in war zones for peace to performing on some of the great world stages, Parsons has always chosen a path of artistic independence and expression. Never shy to chart his own course, Parsons is an outlier in his view of the human experience. His songwriting and recordings have mirrored this by delivering a stellar discography, and his current release, Digging For Rays, shows he has no plans to slow or rest anytime soon.
