Raised in the rural landscape of southeast Michigan, J.W. Carlson is a unique Midwestern voice in contemporary American music. With pockets full of admiration for the introspective, heart-tugging songwriting of Hank Williams, Neil Young and Bob Dylan, J.W Carlson digs at the well of Americana music with one foot stuck in the mud of tradition, and the other digging into the shore of contemporary folk-country music. As he croons atop finely-tuned rugged acoustic guitars and strings, J.W. Carlson is a refreshing reminder of a time when even the manliest of folk music heroes didn’t just sing about the rough and tumble life of hard drink, God, guns, and the brutality of America’s rural landscape – he could melt your heart like butter on fresh cornbread by belting out stirring tales of love, loss, and pain.
