Texas-born songwriter, Jarrod Dickenson’s slightly spooky melodies and lyrics invoke a mid-Western post-war America, when cars ran on leaded gas, television hadn’t yet kidnapped the country’s imagination, and men wore hats every day. His reflective lyrics, almost like hand-written letters, remind us that human stories of lost love, sudden fortune, and abiding mystery transcend the decades…and nothing is better or worse right now than it’s ever been
“If you can catch him, you should…he reminds of this cat, Gram Parsons” -Huey Morgan, BBC Radio 2
“A voice like a young Tom Waits…Jarrod Dickenson’s songs are simply breathtaking, possessing melodies many of his peers would give their left arm for.” – No Depression
“An incredible talent” -Janice Long, BBC Radio 2
“Dickenson has a superb, expressive voice…” -Country Music People (5 Star Review)
“Brilliant songs” -Cerys Matthews, BBC Radio 6
